Featured Customer | Vintage-Inspired Lighting Accents New Farmhouse
On Wednesday, we started a tour of a gorgeous new farmhouse in northwest Ohio that many people mistake as a thoughtful renovation of an older home. The homeowners took great care to include many of the details of a classic farmhouse in their design including a natural stone foundation, a standing seam metal roof, and barn lights. Ryan and his wife designed the home and chronicled the build on Instagram @OhFarmhouse. In Wednesday’s post, we checked out the front porch where the family enjoys watching the flow of the neighborhood. This popular spot is highlighted by two Original™ Stem Mount Pendants. ...

The highest compliment Ryan receives is when someone asks about the remodel of his old farmhouse in northwest Ohio. Funny thing though. It’s a brand new home with such attention to detail that people often think it’s been standing for decades. “We built the house in an urban area where we tore down a very old farmhouse,” Ryan explains. “We wanted the new house to mimic the look of the previous home with its traditional form and simple lines so that it fit into the neighborhood.” ...

Building a home is not for the faint of heart. From endless searches for inspiration, hiring an architect to create the home of your dreams to lining up a builder to bring the plans to life, the process is chock full of decisions, delays, and dollars. When Meaghan and her husband decided to build a home on 30 acres outside Stockholm, Wisconsin, they took matters into their own hands. “We built the house ourselves on weekends beginning in 2005,” she says. “In 2011, we built a barn for our two horses and started living in our new home full time.” Work continued last summer in the kitchen and dining area where Meaghan installed new kitchen counters...

Featured Customer | Barn Wall Sconces Complement Farmhouse Style
Like many designers, Anne Marie discovered Barn Light Electric years ago. But when she and her family moved into an old farmhouse-style home in the horse country of northern Virginia, she knew exactly where to turn for vintage-inspired lighting. “The home was built in 1901, and we bought it as a fixer-upper four years ago,” Anne Marie says. “We were drawn to its bucolic setting, the stone walls that surround the property, and the easy access into Washington, D.C.” At 1,400 square feet, the home was too small for the family of four, so they added a two-story addition including a porch, mudroom, kitchen/dining area, and master suite.  ...
