“It was like putting a 3-D jigsaw puzzle together,” says Vitzthum in regard to creating new spaces that would work for twenty-first-century living. Vitzthum began her layout by relocating the new kitchen to where the dark dining room used to be. The original space had 7 6 ceilings and no windows, making the room dark and gloomy and not a place Paulette wanted to entertain.
You don’t mind paying more (or doing a bit of work). Fully restored vintage lights can be pricey, sometimes running into the thousands of dollars. Bargains abound, too, but keep in mind that lower-priced fixtures might require a bit of work. You’re on a budget. There are plenty of exceptions, of course, but generally a reproduction fixture will be less expensive than a fully restored antique one.
There is one instance in which the “rule of three” simply does not apply to island lighting. That is when you opt for big drama with big lights. Supersized pendant lights really only need to be installed in couples. Most kitchen islands simply are not big enough to warrant any more than two very large pendants. To get the look of maximum lighting impact (without going overboard) opt for two classic white, canvas drum pendants.
