Colorful Kitchen Pendants Roundup (Including My Own!)



I wrote the majority of this post about 2 years ago (almost to the day!), but so many new options have come out since then (and so many of the old links are defunct), that I felt it was a good time to update it.

Also, at last I have my *own* colorful kitchen pendants, I just have to share how much joy their splash of color gives me!


Bad iPhone sneak peek below.

 Colorful Kitchen Pendants Roundup (Including My Own!)

Home Glow Design, Project #HGDremuddleremodel. My rise & fall pendants are from Hector Finch, which is to-the-trade only, but I have a look-alike if you read to the end of the post.


Colorful Kitchen Pendants


One of my favorite Pinterest pages that I have is my Color in the Kitchen page. On it, I’ve collected images of kitchens in almost every color under the sun … and when I say color, I mainly mean the cabinetry is in a color.

And while I dearly wanted to have colorful cabinetry in my kitchen, I decided to save my green cabinets for the combination Butler’s Pantry/Laundry room — mostly because of the mint green dining room next door (which you can see through the rear doorway in the above pic).


You gotta think about sight lines, people!


So I decided to have neutral cabinetry in a beautiful shade of beige.


I love many a neutral (white, cream, gray, beige, stained wood) kitchen. But even when I do, somehow I still want to bring in color, whether through fabrics, rugs, island stools/dining chairs, or, what I’m looking at today, lighting.

I have a thing for green — can’t you tell? I like this vintage billiard pendant look with the charcoal cabinetry.

We will see the above very popular Urban Electric pendants again.

IMO, Hendricks & Churchill are the deVol Kitchens of the USA.

Yellow is the friendliest color, for sure. And don’t you want your kitchen to feel friendly????

The Hamilton, above, looks fabulous in this new-old construction with just the inside painted red.

Same treatment above, but in brass. Loved this Wisconsin lake house project by Summer Thornton!

Why are so many of these lanterns from Urban Electric, you ask? Because the company allows designers to customize any fixture with pretty much any color they want.

I’m not really a hot pink kind of girl, but someone here is. These are the ubiquitous Darlana pendants by Visual Comfort but painted hot pink.


However, if it were me, I would probably buy this look-alike from Wayfair for $195 rather than pay $510 for something I’m planning to paint.

Above is one of my favorite kitchens ever and a big inspiration for own kitchen Remuddle Remodel.


Elizabeth Schmidt’s clients (kitchen below) certainly weren’t afraid of colorful island pendants — or color anywhere else for that matter!

Do you have any favorite colorful pendants? For the price and the fun element, I love the ruffled pendant, but these lanterns have such great color and yet still have a classic silhouette.

    1. I will! I’m still waiting on a couple of custom items that have been a long time in coming, and then we’ll be ready to go. When I can do a full reveal will depend, too, on when/if it will be published (fingers crossed!). But you can be sure I’ll give lots of info when I do!
