In the northern most corner of New Jersey, Cynthia and her family enjoy a rural lifestyle full of hiking, fishing, camping, and all that the great outdoors offers. Their comfortable farmhouse was brand new when they moved in 19 years ago but has undergone some much-needed renovations recently.

With the building inspector’s visit looming and the Certificate of Occupancy hanging in the balance, Jane had the electrician install a builder-basic fixture in the space.... Read More

We’ve seen a lot of beautiful bathroom spaces of late (yes, bathrooms can, and should be, beautiful!) and we wanted to share some of these on the blog today.
Often an afterthought, vanity lighting plays a crucial role in the illumination of your bathroom.

Vanity lighting can also serve as a stylish focal point in these smaller... Read More
Back in September, we met Renee out in Texas who had just completed building both a house and a new barn on her working ranch. Renee’s lighting needs varied from the house to the barn, but she wanted a cohesive look to the spaces since they are close in proximity. She chose Barn Light Electric’s handcrafted barn lights that complement the old-fashioned farmhouse feel to the buildings but with a modern twist of styles and colors.

A quick look at the calendar this morning and I realized that it’s almost time for the biannual clock adjustment. This Sunday, we spring forward into Daylight Saving Time and thrust ourselves, albeit sluggishly thanks to the loss of that precious hour, into the new season.
And while your spring plans may include a long list of cleaning and refreshing details that need attention, you don’t need to lose any sleep over your lighting. We’ve got you covered!
