Porch Season is Officially Here! Time to Light It Up!
There’s so much to love about spring! With the warmer weather and the season’s explosion of color, the porch is once again a popular spot to watch the kids play, check out the neighbors’ new flowers, and enjoy hearing the birds again. Whether your porch is just a small extension beyond your front door or a screened-in, living/kitchen combo out back, all porches need appropriate lighting. Today we take a look at some of our favorite porch projects and the variety of lighting styles homeowners chose to complement their outdoor décor.  ... Read More

Who’s ready for fall entertaining? Here in Florida, we’re used to broiling temps six months out of the year, but much of the country has baked Florida-style this summer.

School’s out and it’s time to hit the lake! If you’re near Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, and you dash into the Main Lake Market for the sunscreen you left behind, you might think you’ve run through a time warp instead. This market is not a generic convenience store found on every street corner, but one with a rich history and loaded with everything else you may have forgotten for a day on the lake. The rich color of the wood ceiling, the well-worn floors, and the old-fashioned schoolhouse lights invite you to slow down, browse a bit, and maybe even take time out for an ice cream cone. ...

Professional's Corner | American-Made Lighting a Priority for St. Pete Builder
As a certified building contractor and owner of Little Yellow House, Inc., Don Gelsinger spends a lot of time thinking about other people’s spaces. Last year, however, he and his wife, Andrea, took a hard look at their own space and realized they needed to separate their home-based business from their personal space. “We built a new detached garage/office suite last year,” Andrea says, noting that “it was the best idea we ever had!” Since their neighborhood is on the shores of Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, Florida, the couple live a “salty life” where they boat, fish, and take advantage of the chamber-of-commerce weather year...

Featured Customer | Ceiling Fans Keep Things Cool for Baseball Faithful
October is one of my favorite months, and it’s not because everything gets pumped up with pumpkin spice. Well, there is that, but it also means that the race to the World Series is full speed ahead. I do love my college football, but October is a great time to reflect on all the great summertime baseball memories we made — many at the smaller, family-friendly minor league parks. Out in Salt Lake City, Utah, the Salt Lake Bees of the Pacific Coast League offer fans young and old an exciting experience in beautiful Smith’s Ballpark. The management recently updated their patio spaces where large parties and business groups gather to watch the game. ... Read More

On Wednesday, we started our tour of a new construction barn designed to look as if it had stood for decades. Pat, of Doylestown, Ohio, worked with Country Carpenters to carefully select materials and finishes that would honor the character of her property and complement her home and other outbuildings. For lighting, she chose hand-crafted fixtures from Barn Light Electric. “On my first contact with Barn Light Electric, they understood I wasn’t just building a barn,” Pat says. “I was working on a project I had imagined for years!” Wednesday’s post featured the exterior lighting and main floor of the barn, and today, we head upstairs...
