You can find plenty of information online about what all of these differences mean, but the one thing experts agree on is that LED lighting is, by far, the most efficient and longest-lasting option on the market. ...

Repurposed Warehouse Shades Find New Life in Australian Retreat
While we knew that RLM warehouse shades were all the rage in the United States during the 1930s and 40s in factories and warehouses, apparently they were quite popular Down Under too. Our friends at the Red Brick Barn, a rustic, two-story retreat in central Victoria, found some vintage warehouse shades at a local flea market and repurposed them for use in the communal dining room. The shades were green enamel when found at the flea market but were spray painted an off-white color leaving a hint of green showing at the rim as an accent. ... Read More

Making The Switch Will Save You Money!
Since it was first introduced in the early 1990’s, the Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb (CFL) has been one of the most popular Energy Efficient bulbs in America. Compact Fluorescent bulbs were designed to replace the less energy efficient Standard Incandescent bulb. CFL’s produce just as much light as your Standard Incandescent, but use 1/3 of the overall energy! Why should I switch to CFL’s? What’s the difference? It’s the average lifespan of each bulb – it differs drastically! Although less in your initial cost, Standard Incandescent bulbs can be manufactured to last 750 to 1,000 hours.
