before + after: kitchen chandelier

For Christmas this year I asked for a kitchen light fixture. I was given a budget to find and install one ... and lucky for me I searched and found two! Here is the consignment chandelier I found for the kitchen. I love the difference it makes in our home!

Thanks for the love everyone! I am really happy with the chandelier too! It helps our condo feel more unique.

Emily, I bought this chandelier at Blue Springs Home, a nice bedding shop in Newport Beach, that also has a few consignment lighting and furniture pieces. It was on sale, which I think they have quarterly?

I love the light fixture but I have an unrelated question. What is the name of your granite colour? i have to same cabinets and the backsplash is going to be marble subway tile. I'm struggling to find granite i like, but i like your! :)

nicole me oh my! said...

Hello Lita, I actually don't know the name of our granite - it was selected before we bought the house. We just did the subway tile.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your kitchen! My kitchen is in desperate need of a renovation and your kitchen is so beautiful. I can't help but be inspired. One huge job I have to tackle is painting the cabinets. I was wondering if you painted yours and if so do you have any advice or guidance. Thank you so much for all of the wonderful photos and ideas!
