A Look Back at our Favorite Spaces of 2017
Don’t look now but we’re rushing headlong into the new year which means it’s time to take a peek back at 2017. This year saw many changes here at Barn Light as we added new lights and rustic Furniture to our lineup of American-made goods. And our craftsmen got creative with the Porcelain Dinnerware collection adding bakeware and serveware pieces to their repertoire. This year also saw phenomenal growth in our Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook audiences. Our feeds were filled with photos from customers eager to show off some pretty amazing spaces. We want to kick off our year-end review by sharing some of our favorites with you. ... Read More

Pro's Corner | Copper Schoolhouse Lighting Offers Upscale Touch in NYC Apartment
When two households combine into one, the decor in the new place can be tricky. Blending two distinct styles into one cohesive whole was the challenge when Shelly and Anna moved to a new apartment in South Williamsburg, just over the bridge from downtown Manhattan. Shelly, an interior designer who recently launched Hyphen, created a soothing space that is both light and airy yet dotted with dark woods and floral finishes. ... Read More

Pro's Corner | Lighting Serves as Designer’s Best Trick
Interior designers thrive on creating beautiful and functional spaces for their clients. They tackle remodels and renovations in every room of the house. But what is a designer’s dream project? For Cynthia Zamaria, an interior designer, farmer-florist, and blogger, the dream project is restoring her very own country property complete with a small flower farm. “We bought this 113-acre recreation property seven years ago as a weekend getaway,” she says. “The original house came with four bedrooms, a bathroom, a tiny kitchen, and a dark living room that didn’t take advantage of the sweeping views.” The property is located less than two...

Guest Blogger | One Schoolhouse Light, Three Different Styles
One of the things I love most about interior design is how open it is for interpretation – colors, accessories, moods, and even settings can all affect the way the beholder experiences a room. Like many other aspects of decor, when it comes to lighting there are very few (arguably, if any) rules that are hard and fast.

What’s better than a light fixture that fits your space and provides exactly the amount of light you need? How about a fixture that looks just as beautiful when it’s turned off? When Jessica Phillips, of Phillips Tax & Consulting, renovated a small building in downtown Hastings, Michigan, she realized every design detail had to have purpose. “The front of the building is small, and it’s easy to miss when you’re driving by. We wanted to trick it out by being intentional about the quality and design of the relatively few features that are there,” Jessica says. “It was important to me to create something that looked classic and...
