If you’re enchanted with house design as much as we are, perhaps you find yourself eyeballing the neighbor’s new addition with more than casual interest and your vacation pictures feature in-setting shots of pendant lights instead of panaromic views of the mountains. Sometimes you find a space where the elements are so beautifully integrated that it just seems effortless. Such is the case with Harbor Cottage, a vacation rental located in Martinsville, Maine.
Our friend, photographer Justine Hand, visited Harbor Cottage last year and came away with some incredible photographs including this one of the industrial farmhouse style kitchen. Though rustic in style, the kitchen awaits a gourmand with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Gaggenau 5-burner gas range, and other modern amenities. The space has an open, airy feel with light-colored wood flooring and textured linen window treatments contrasting with black soapstone countertops. The windows open wide to draw in the salt air and sea breezes, and vintage lights watch over the minimal shelving that maintains the open feeling.
To get this look, browse our collection of Vintage Wall Sconces where you’ll find a number of different fixtures that work well in a farmhouse style kitchen. The Davenport Wall Sconce has a traditional, turn of the century look and can be finished in Historic Bronze, Polished Nickel, or Satin Nickel. Choose a solid color shade or go with the creamy milk glass shade for a true vintage feel.
If you want more flexibility in your kitchen lighting, check out the Garden City Swingarm Adjustable Sconce in solid brass. The adjustable arm allows you to pull the light away from the wall for focused tasks or push it back for more ambient lighting. Available in four traditional finish colors, this sconce adds the perfect spot of light to kitchens, reading nooks, or by the bedside.
