I think we may have settled on a pendant light (well, two actually - one for each end of the barstool area). For the first time, we actually agreed on a style. Now I am struggling a bit with the finish options (it you are curious, check out the link. Unfortunately, they only show you swatches and not the actual light).
I think I am leaning towards one of the silver finishes because I feel like it'll look more polished. But I do like the dark brass finish as well.
We haven't nailed down finishes for faucets or hardware... This may influence that though. Oh! And I decided while the plumbers were at the house last weekend running pipes to also run a cold line to the stove area so we can put in a pot filler! That way we don't have walk from one end of the kitchen to the other carrying a pot filled with water. Unless we need to dump it. That's another story.
Oh, and this weekend, Restoration Hardware has 20% off purchases...
