While I have been really busy with finishing last minute orders for Mother's Day ( in UK 3th April) I have been thinking about a lot of smaller projects around the house. Since we finished our loft conversion back in December, there is suddenly a lot of things that need to be changed, painted and moved around. You know, paint one wall and you feel you have to paint the whole house. No in reality I moved some furniture upstairs, my work space has it's own room etc. so...I have one dilemma in out kitchen/dining room. We have a sloped ceiling with spotlights ( all done before we moved in) and I don't like it. No it's fine, just very cold light. I have solved the problem in past with small lights on side table or standing floor light on the corner. But my dream is to have large ceiling pendant.

But how can I do that? is completely impossible? how is going to look? One of my though was to use string lights, like on first two pictures. But it sort of feel like compromise again. So what do you think?

The last photo is our kitchen, the table is actually much less orange then on this photo:) I would love to have a large pendant hung low above the dining table. It would be so inviting, cozy and warm... let me know what you think? do you have a ceiling like that at home and what lights have you got? any thoughts? Thank you!
