Featured Customer | Homeowner Taps Barn Lighting for Simplicity, Classic Style
In Monday’s post, we visited with Melissa who lives in a small town close to the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. She and her husband built a relaxed and comfortable home filled with industrial farmhouse style. Melissa noted that barn-style lighting was key to the classic farmhouse look she wanted, and she chose the iconic Original™ Warehouse Gooseneck Light for her porch. Today, we take a peek inside Melissa’s new home where the rustic lighting plan continues into the kitchen, dining room, and baths. ... Read More

Building a new home requires countless decisions.

While creating a new home can be exciting and maybe even fun, it helps to have a professional guide you through the process. Jamie Keskin, of Jamie Keskin Design in Massachusetts, recently helped a client navigate the myriad of decisions needed to create their dream home. ... 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. Such was the case in Scarsdale, New York, when a homeowner added a pool and outdoor entertaining space. 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

Pro's Corner | Whoa! Barn Lights for an Equestrian-Theme Bath
Ask any designer about the most important element of any project and I’m pretty sure “know your client” is right near the top of the list. For Katie DeRario of Hart & Lock Design, knowing her client was a young girl with a love for horses played into the design of an extensive bathroom remodel. “The home is located in an equestrian suburb of Atlanta,” Katie explains. “The little girl who lives here loves horses so we decided to incorporate some fun equestrian details into the space.” The bath was once the master bathroom which was moved to another part of the house, and Katie guided the complete remodel to accommodate the...

Color Inspiration | Classic Black Always in Style
So who remembers the 2017 Pantone color of the year? How about 2016 when they chose not one, but two, colors of the year? Anybody? Color trends may come and quickly go, but Black is one hue that will never, in our humble opinion, go out of style. (By the way, Pantone picked Greenery for this year taking over from last year’s baby blue and pink tones of Serenity and Rose Quartz.)  Many people consider Black a “safe” color. Our sales team hears that quite often — “I’m afraid to pick a color, so I just want Black.” ... Read More
