Tip for A Cozy Kitchen

The kitchen really is the heart of most homes now! Its a trend I just love - there is nothing more fun than all being together cooking and chatting in the kitchen. One way to make your kitchen feel warm and more like a living space is to add another layer of lighting. Table lamps can add soft light and a decorative touch - and they require no electrical work or kitchen remodeling! 

Here a few of my favorite examples! 

I love these delicate silver candlestick lamps in here! {via Canadian House & Home}

A desk lamp relocated to the kitchen provides great task lighting - wonderful idea! {via Emmas Blog}

The small scale double table lamp ties in with the black of the tiles (I also adore the silver pitchers above!) {Designer Craig Schumacher via House Beautiful}

This is my favorite one! The lamps set in the center of each window are so lovely! {via Young House Love}

 The black shades add extra drama! {via House Beautiful February 2008}

This is only for those of us who don't need much counter space but I love this little crystal lamp in here anyway :) {via Unplggd.com}

Ina Garten's kitchen in House Beautiful . . . the master of elegant entertaining!  A table lamp helps the counter feel more like a console table or sideboard.
