Rustic Kitchens and Fun Lighting

I found these pictures on Pinterest via Segreto Finishes.  They all
have interesting finishes and wonderful light fixtures.

The first kitchen is a great example of "Layered Lighting."
1.  Windows above the cabinet allows natural light      
2.  They used under counter light for task lighting         
3.  They used matching lanterns over the island            
and even though you can't see it in the picture...
4.  There is probably recessed lighting as well        
All these layers of light are probably on separate switches
 with dimmers.  Now you can even get an app for your
i phone, so you can control your lighting remotely.


  1. Hi Cindy,

    These are gorgeous photos. I love the lighting and the rustic look in all of them. I couldn't pick one for my favorite. I would die for one of these kitchens...Sigh


  2. Hello Cindy,

    Blessings always~
