A tiny house may hold the key to happiness for you! ... Read More

Spring Forward with Exterior Lighting Checkup
With the clocks adjusted and the calendar flipping to April this weekend, you have no more excuses for putting off the spring cleaning! Sunshine and warm temps ease the pain of taking stock in the exterior of your home to determine what toll Mother Nature took during the last few months. Exterior lighting can take a beating during the winter. Snow and ice, even wind and rain, can pepper a light’s finish and loosen the mounting.  ... Read More

Featured Customer | Brass Schoolhouse Lighting Suits 1930s-Era Kitchen
When Melissa and Dheeraj Maria moved from their Brooklyn, New York, apartment to a 1936-era, five-bedroom home in New Rochelle, they were thrilled with the expanded space. The kitchen, however, was last redecorated in the 1960s, and featured an inordinate amount of shiny wallpaper on the walls and ceiling. The six-week renovation project, chronicled in this Architectural Digest post, took the space from dark and depressing to bright and inviting. The couple opted to keep the original layout but ditched the dark cabinets, cheap countertops, and outdated flooring. And yes, the wallpaper had to go. ... Read More

Featured Customer | Mid Century Kitchen Remodel Features Classic Brass Pendants
After 25 years in a self-remodeled 1870s village home, Sarah fell in love with a mid century home just outside of Syracuse, New York, built by Charles Umbrecht. An architect and quality craftsman with a substantial following, Umbrect is known for beautiful mouldings, fireplaces, and native limestone floors. “We took a leap of faith and decided to move to the country. We wanted to update, without ruining, this Umbrecht home,” Sarah says. “With the exception of appliances, the kitchen had not been updated since it was built in 1957.” She describes the remodel as a “gut-to-the-studs” job. ...

Professional's Corner | Brass Wall Sconces Offer Dramatic Style in Tight Space
As hard as I try, my nightstand always overflows. This small, but oh-so-functional piece of furniture holds the iHome, my stack of nighttime reading, a notepad and pen, plus a lamp. Then I spotted this blog post by Brooke Christen over on Nesting with Grace. Brass wall sconces not only free up space on the night stand, but they offer an elegant statement in Brooke’s master bedroom. “Our bedroom is on the smallish side,” Brooke says. “It measures about 11′ x 12′ without much room for night stands.” Brooke has lived in her 1950s-era Connecticut home for almost two years. Although the room was painted almost immediately, it... Read More
