Why we love this pic: From the warm, sophisticated color palette to the harmonious visual balance, there's everything to love about this gorgeous design. The black tile backsplash lends weight to the minimal white cabinetry as the clean line of the bar stools is further defined with the kilim rug. But it's the array of varied, matte pendant lights that really drive this design home, breaking up all those clean lines with a dynamic dose of movement and intrigue.

The takeaway: Varying your pendant lights is a great way to add unobtrusive intrigue to your design.
