Gold Light Fixtures in the Kitchen

I have partnered with for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure.

Well, hello there! It’s been a few months since I have popped in over here with an update, but I am excited to be back with you today. Life with the little ones and working on our new home has kept me busy as of late. I am definitely enjoying watching Hazel, Owen and Violet grow and don’t want to miss a moment of it.

We have been working on making the home we purchased last summer into our own. The biggest transformation, so far, has definitely taken place in the kitchen. The most recent addition: new, gold light fixtures!

The kitchen light fixture that was here when we moved in was this ugly, large box with awful fluorescent bulbs. It was likely original when the house was built back in 1971 and it was not doing this kitchen any favors. Seriously….it was terrible. 

Here is a look back at what this kitchen looked like when we moved in:

The light fixture in the breakfast nook wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t my taste.

I knew exactly what style I wanted to replace the overhead kitchen light and was delighted to find the Minka Lavery Harbour Point Semi-Flush Mount in Liberty Gold available from It matched the kitchen handles I chose and I love how the gold tone warms up the space.
As I looked around for a fixture to coordinate for the breakfast nook, I fell in love with the Minka Lavery Atrio Three Light Pendant. It is the same shade of “liberty gold.”

We still have some work to do to finish our kitchen redo, including attaching the rest of the hardware, painting the walls, adding a backsplash, installing recessed lighting and finding a new breakfast nook table that works well for the whole family. One step at a time, am I right?

I hope to share more details of the progress thus far soon with details on all of the sources.

Till next time…
