lighting: it's important to go big


Inevitably, if a project I'm working on calls for lighting, I will get a slightly panicked phone call from my client saying that the light is too big.  This can happen before the light is even installed, or the light is installed before everything else is finished.  Lamps are not excluded from this!

But here's the thing...
They have always liked the room when I'm done.
What feels crazy in the moment fits in the bigger picture.

When it comes to lighting, it's nearly always the right choice to go big!

One of my kitchen clients was nervous about her new pendants yesterday, but I think I talked her off the lighting cliff.  :-)  Today I'm going to share examples of kitchen islands with large lighting above.  There are so many components to a room that I always prefer to make a statement with the lighting.

What are your thoughts on the topic?  Are you a fan of large scale lighting?
I'd love to hear your view!
