Our kitchen is approaching the finish line and I’m so excited to finally be able to shoot a big reveal post! We’re just waiting on new throw pillows for the breakfast nook and then I’ll take photos of very nook and cranny. In the meantime I wanted to share our new light fixtures and two new prints from Nantucket Print Shop that are making the space feel more like home!

The pendants above our kitchen island are the Ralph Lauren Windsor large hanging shade in polished nickel and they were worth every second of the wait! The size is perfect for our 10′ ceilings but they also come in a medium size if you’re worried about scale. In the background you can see our Oomph Hobe Sound lantern in hinting blue. I think of all three fixtures as the jewelry in this renovation we worked so hard to see come to fruition and I cannot wait for years of happy memories in this space!

I knew almost the second I snapped this wave at Surfside Beach on Nantucket this summer that I would want a print of it hanging in our new kitchen. The waves were incredible that morning and the colors take me right back to that sunny summer moment at the beach with my husband and baby!

nantucket harbor aerial print in design darling family room

Our kitchen is completely open to our family room and while there’s still some decorating to be done in there (still deciding on a new rug…) I couldn’t wait to hang this aerial view of Nantucket harbor that we added to our Etsy shop this week. I love it above the chaise lounge from my childhood home that we reupholstered in this blue linen — it’s a happy little corner with this monogrammed pillow and the quatrefoil table! Officially time to cross #48 off my 101 in 1001 list…!

  1. Can you share the dimensions of your island and size of pendants? Did you find any guidance helpful in figuring out sizing and spacing of the pendants? Google seems all over the place and trying to convince the hubs on some certain pendants for our 7ft island 🙂

  2. Mackenzie, the kitchen is just wonderful! . The RL shades are perfect. This must be such a happy kitchen to walk into in the morning and prepare your family meals . What a happy space and the two pictures just add to the feel of the kitchen. Beautiful job!

  3. I love reading your blog, but the thought of $5000 for two shades makes it seem unreachable for many (or at least for myself). Is there a way you could show dupes for things? I do not want to skip over these posts, but makes me feel like I am doing something wrong if I cannot afford these things and makes me just want to skip over them. 🙁
