One of the very first things we did after moving was swap the island pendants (below) for new ceramic ones from Serena & Lily. As in I ordered them right after we closed, had them delivered to the old house, hauled them to the new house, and made Bill install them a few days after moving in. Sure I didn’t love those generic black ones but I’ve never had island pendants before and knew that updating the kitchen was going to take some time so I was just itching to do something…and quickly.

Our kitchen is part of what we call the Big Room, which also houses one of our living spaces and the dining area. It’s the first time I’ve really designed an open concept room and it’s so important that each + every element in the room work together and looks right from all angles. It’s a challenge but a fun one! Because of this, I was looking to add an organic accent that would complement the kitchen but look nice from other spots in the room. And since I had an idea of what I was going to do for a backsplash, decided that the ceramic nature of the Everly pendant would work well with the handmade tile. I’m happy to say that I was correct (let’s be honest, it doesn’t always work out!).
If you’ve been around, or on Instagram, for awhile, you know how many Serena & Lily pieces I have/have had around our house. Including this classic flush mount in our entry and this brass sconce that used to be in Max’s room!
