The space is brought together with layers of light, which include recessed can lights overhead, Xenon task lighting underneath the cabinets, decorative lighting inside the cabinets and Swarovski crystal pendants over the island.
“These pendants were carefully chosen to pick up the subtle amber hints in the mosaic glass accent tile, hardwood flooring and casing at the doors and windows,” she says. “An amber dupioni silk chandelier over the table complements the Swarovski pendants.”
Even though the kitchen is predominately white, continuity is created through color, she notes. “The pale greens in the backsplash tie in with the granite countertops,” she says. “The warm rich wood flooring complements the decorative light fixtures and the painted white cabinets provide contrast with the deep-stained island and furniture. Overall, there is a wide color palette of lights, mid tones and darks that create a sense of harmony.”
