Pro's Corner | Barn Pendant Lights Establish Inviting Feel to Cafe
The humble coffee shop. No matter if you live in a small town or in the heart of New York City, your local coffee shop likely serves up much more than a hot cuppa Joe. It’s a gathering place for friends, a spot to relax and read, and a hub of information for locals and out-of-towners alike. In Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Café One Eight is a locally owned shop in the heart of the historic downtown. In business for more than four years, the owners decided it was time for a refresh of the space. They turned to Chris and Claudia Beiler of Creative Space Designers to handle the complete remodel. ... Read More

Pro's Corner | Nautical Chandelier Adds Fun, Pool Vibe to Bath
We call it the renovation ripple effect. When you remodel one space then realize an adjoining space now looks rather old and tired in comparison.

The adjoining mudroom and bath, original to the home, was suddenly in dire need of an update. “Everything was ripped out including the tile, sink, stall shower, and toilet,” says Lisa Tessler of Link Interiors. “We started from scratch. We reinvented the bathroom and mudroom to reflect an outdoor pool/summer vibe. The goal was to bring the outside in with a cabana feel.” ... Read More

Capturing the Wow Factor with Minimalist Lighting
I just returned from the home of a friend who happens to be an interior designer. As you might expect, her home is drop-dead gorgeous with every detail in perfect placement. It’s not that her space is chock full of décor, but rather, she has taken a more minimalist approach and thoughtfully selected pieces to include in her contemporary farmhouse. For those who eschew a minimalist style as cold and uninviting, I would urge you to take another look. While minimalist styles of lighting have clean and simple lines, they can also be visually striking enough to make a statement. It’s the small details in these fixtures that provide the ultimate wow factor. ... Read More

Featured Customer | Barn Lights Offer Casual, Rustic Style
Sometimes you have to raise the roof. Not raise a ruckus, but literally raise the roof. That’s exactly what Jenny and her husband did when they tackled a gut renovation of their Millbrook, New York, home. The major renovation included an addition and rebuild of the second floor. The result is a stunning 6,500-square-foot modern farmhouse chock full of laid-back style. “We were going for a casual, rustic feel throughout with fixtures and finishes that still look good even as style trends change over time,” Jenny says. “Remodeling and design are hobbies that I love and I put together idea books on Houzz to design the spaces.” ...
