Favorite Lighting for a Modern Farmhouse Look
Hi there friends! A few weeks ago I shared my new kitchen beams, which I love so very much. I also revealed my new cage lights over the bar, which I received so many questions about. It’s all part of the 8 Ways to Refresh Your Kitchen, without a full on renovation. I spoke about loving & appreciating the home you have in THIS post and why I thought it might be a good idea to start this series.
Take a look at the before from when we just moved in. They are beautiful lights from Pottery Barn but just not my style. The kitchen leans towards traditional/farmhouse so I wanted to balance it by adding a modern touch.
The after!! I found beautiful cage pendant lights that made a huge impact and gave me the look I was going for. I thought the price point was great as well. By changing out the lighting alone you can make any space feel current and stylish.
We have been in our house for 6 years and I just finished replacing all the light fixtures. Most were either not my style or were builder grade lights. What a huge difference it makes, I am always getting compliments on the lights in the boys rooms, our bedroom and even the den. We just replaced the playroom light fixture and that was the last one.
I move at my on pace with our house. I like to think things through, often taking way more time but that’s ok. I would rather know I made the right decision.
For a small investment you can transform a space and give it a much needed focal point. AllModern is a favorite source for lighting, they have amazing prices, a great selection and everything over $49 ships FREE!!!
Many people ask me about ordering online and I prefer it. Believe it or not, I don’t like to shop. I like to pop into stores but if I am looking for something specific I am done after the 3rd store. The sheer convenience of it and the fact that many sites allow no hassle returns and free shipping makes it a no brainer. The one piece of advice I will offer is measure well, especially with lighting. I make a template with oak tag or if it’s furniture I will tape it off on the floor or use a similar piece for a comparison.

Love those lighting fixtures! You’re so right – lighting can completely change the ambiance of a room, and give it a whole new feel. It’s such an important point of interior decor. Thanks for sharing this!
Thank you Mary!
Amazing lighting tips! Some people don’t realize how important lighting is and completely forget about it!Great post
Thank you Rui!
What type of bulbs did you use in your new lights? I am not a big fan of the yellow of the edison bulbs, but I like the look of the exposed bulb. Do you have a suggestion for a more “white” glow bulb?
Hi Kari, I used GE Crystal Clear energy efficient. They are perfect! It look me a long time to find the right bulbs. Good luck, Jen
