RH Modern's Languedoc Sconce:The character of 1960s French lighting is captured in this sconce from renowned designer Jonathan Browning. With glass globes suspended from a slender brass frame, the fixture has the appearance of magically floating in space.
The kitchen is painted in Dulux Chalky Downs, a soft neutral with brown undertones. These aren't so apparent in the lighter apparitions of Chalky Downs but if you look at Leopoldina's front door, which is visibly brown, then all will become clear!

'Calke Green' by Farrow & Ball is another colour that pairs well with dark wood. As you can see, it looks warm and traditional when covering a whole room. http://www.solidwoodkitchencabinets.co.uk/cabinets_blog/
