Thanks y'all!

I showed the cabinet guy a bunch of photos and I said, "I like this about this one" "I HATE this about that one" and he did a quick sketch that I liked and then he made it happen.

Breezy - I think you are absolutely right. It is simple but has some interesting details. And yes, I know I can come around more and I should and I want to but life (laundry, kids, cleaning) get in the way. I'll do better. I promise.

For those of you who asked about the tile:
The color is Velvet Ecru made by Casa Dolce Casa. It comes in a few different sizes like 12x24 but I went with the more traditional 24x24. It is porcelain but has A LOT of variety and of my 600 sq. ft, I have one seen two of the same tile. Their link is below.

Wattage necessary for pendant lights over the sink?

I'm in love with the telegraph pendant type lights (link below) but they only allow 40W bulbs. If I have two, hanging at either end of a double bowl sink, do you think that is enough for task lighting or will it be more mood lighting?

I will also have a schoolhouse type light in the center of the kitchen and it's a very small kitchen so enormous amounts of light isn't necessary. But at night my back will be to the schoolhouse light so will be reliant on the pendants.
