Decorating is endless.
Cooking never ends.
Gardens are always changing.
And best of all shopping goes on and on!

Hence the name,
Open Ended!

What to do, What to do!

This is my space.
It is above my island in the kitchen. I like the light fixtures. But.....I think it needs a little change. Our home is a cross between French Country and a English Cottage. So I have been thinking pot racks.French kitchens always have copper in them. And I love copper. I've had copper pieces in my kitchens ever since I was first married, more than 28 years ago.

The trouble with the lights is they put out a funky glow in the kitchen. They are not a task light and since I do most of my tasks at this island I need something else. Do I buy a pot rack with lights already in them (keep in mind I have two electrical boxes) or do I buy new pendant lights and put a pot rack in between?

Oh,what to do!

Here are some options that I am considering.

I could use two of these. As you can see there are 2 light fixtures in each.
That would give me quite a bit of light.

Or, how about this one? I could put this in between two pendant lights.
I love the color of the metal.

Here are a few more ideas that could go on the wall. If I decide to only change the light fixtures.

This last picture is a little to busy for me but I still like to look! I believe inspiration comes from really looking at all different styles!
