OMG. We bought a house on Johns Island, South Carolina. I haven’t mentioned it here sooner because part of me thought it would never happen. But the permit finally came through and ground has been broken. Commence the freak out.
Most of the big things have been chosen: flooring (French Oak wide plank), countertops (Carrera marble), and hardware (polished chrome). Lighting is another story. I’m on a mission to find some really great lighting to make our new construction a little more charming. In a perfect world, we’d either renovate a charming Charleston home, fix up a rambling island ranch, or build a completely custom home in the woods. But we don’t have a million dollars (or any spare time to babysit a reno or completely custom build). So I need to figure out how to add some vintage-industrial-boho vibes to a pretty basic new construction home.
We are going to need lighting for the foyer, the kitchen, dining room, living room, my studio, bathrooms, and stairwell. I’m starting with the kitchen island pendants, because it’s the heart of the home!
Here’s a roundup of 10 kitchen pendant lights we’re considering for our new Johns Island home. We’ll need two pendant lights over the island.
