We have an open concept home so no matter which room you're in you can see the kitchen, dining and living room all at once.
Our living room is designed quite "softly" - sheer lilac curtains, velvet drum-shade lamps, velvety furniture. Our kitchen is more dramatic - dark, dark brown cabinets, stainless steel backsplash and white/grey quartz counters. Our dining room (very small) holds a dark wooden rectangular table with benches.
So - we're trying to decide on a dining room light. We're thinking black or dark in colour and right now are debating between one with a black, silk string shade or one with a dark wooden slatted shade. We just can't decide which compliments all the rooms the best. Or does it have to complement all rooms the best.
