New kitchen lighting

I pretty much despise all the lighting in our house, so have been on a rampage to swap out as many light fixtures as I possibly can. I’ve also been taking the opportunity to add in ceiling medallions for an extra dose of style, where I’m obsessed with the mix of vintage, ornate medallion and the modern light fixture base.

So for the before photos:

These pendants just felt dark. And dated. Though taking them down did give us insight into when the kitchen was renovated, roughly 6 years ago.

We installed these globe pendants from West Elm with these ceiling medallions from Amazon. Easy and efficient. The trick for finishing the medallions off cleanly is to run a bead of adhesive caulking around the edge of the medallions to ensure everything looks perfectly flush. Ta da.
