Brighten Your Home with Rustic Country Charm

May 9, 2015 10

With summer just around the corner, we’re daydreaming about barbeques, the warm outdoors, and spending time with friends and family. That said, the main activities we associate with summertime are entertaining and cooking. Before your friends and family come to visit, make your kitchen and outdoor space summer ready.

Our design-educated staff have lighting tips to help you achieve the perfect summertime feel for your home, both inside and outside. A classic and timeless summertime style, we’re coveting rustic country charm that can carry from your kitchen to your patio. When it comes to creating this style, Kichler has you covered.

Kitchen lighting is critical not only to illuminating your home, but to achieving the right character. Pendants can be used as task lighting over a kitchen island, with their position overhead, casting the perfect light onto the task at hand. The rustic style of this 6 Light Pendant from Kichler’s Brinley Collection gives a beautifully modern treatment to the familiarity and comfort of canning jars. Used in groups or stand-alone, the Brinley collection is a new twist on traditional charm.

The outdoors are your quintessential summertime stomping grounds, and outdoor lighting is one of the most cost-effective ways to upgrade your home. Add in the fact that some of life’s best memories take place in the backyard, your patio is a part of your home not to be overlooked. As part of your spring-cleaning, consider bringing your patio into top shape with the addition of rustic outdoor lighting.

The stand-alone fixtures from Kichler’s South Hope™ collection soften their sturdy rectangular design with Satin Etched Cased Opal Glass for an expertly understated grace and welcoming light. A Rubbed Bronze™ finish completes the overall look with a touch of casual style. Open and clean, we recommend using this coordinating collection to carry a consistent style from patio to porch to walkway.
