The Right Pendant Lights Are Essential to a Minimalist Kitchen

Jane Ledger sure knows how to maximize style in a minimalist space. This kitchen's blend of sleek silhouettes and intriguing textures showcases a certain kind of design mastery, but truthfully, it isn't that tough to duplicate if you look closely. A neutral color palette comprised mostly of gray tones envelopes the room, while white and beige shades bring in added depth. The waterfall island — with its smooth edges and universally flattering marble finish — match the concrete floor, and the wooden cabinetry's simple lines are duplicated on the island's base. And while the diamond-backed stools are a flattering touch, it's the trio of bowl-shaped pendants that have the most impressive detailing. In order to create a kitchen like this, work with a light palette. Bring in open shelving to heighten the airiness of the design, and make sure to artfully display geometric lights that stunningly contrast the rest of the kitchen's simplicity.

A trio of these similar pendants would make for ideal textural details.
