Gooseneck Barn Lights Offer Superior Downlighting for Garages
My garage is a hot mess. I admit that I have never actually parked a car in the garage thanks to countless boxes of stuff, kayaks, bikes, a punching bag, and 1,000 board feet of red oak that’s drying. No room for even a Smart car in there. Which is why I keep the door closed as much as possible. No matter what’s hiding behind your garage doors, the exterior can look as sharp and stylish as your home with thoughtful exterior lighting. Whether your garage is attached or detached, excellent down lighting helps illuminate the surrounding driveway and the walkway to the house without creating harsh glare. And there’s no better garage lighting than... Read More

Color Inspiration for Spring | Delphite Blue
One of the things I like best about spring is the reemergence of color. Delicate purple flowers, bright green grass, and pale pink cherry blossoms all brighten up the world and chase the winter blues away. But there’s one blue you might want to keep around all year long. Our porcelain enamel palette of colors features an array of hues, from traditional Black and Vintage Green to more vivid Yellow and Cherry Red. But Delphite Blue gets the nod today! Reminiscent of a freshly laid robin’s egg, Delphite Blue offers a creamy pastel shade while still maintaining the high-gloss finish indicative of porcelain enamel.  ... Read More

And while your spring plans may include a long list of cleaning and refreshing details that need attention, you don’t need to lose any sleep over your lighting. We’ve got you covered! ... Read More

Custom Made Barn Lights | Stylish, Affordable, Efficient
My college economics professor was dead on when he preached “You get what you pay for.” His words popped into my head when I spotted this poor little barn light. It’s certainly seen better days. This basic barn light probably looked like a steal to the homeowner. A cheaply made import that cost more to ship than manufacture, this fixture can be snapped up for less than $40 at the big box store. ... Read More
