In case you missed Wednesday’s post, we’re celebrating Kim Lewis’s newest tiny home which is making its debut this weekend at the Dwell on Design show in Los Angeles. Kim is an expert at making the most of every single inch of a tiny home, but she refuses to sacrifice on color or style. Small spaces can be especially difficult when it comes to lighting.

Swing Into Summer with Versatile Swing-Arm Wall Sconces
With the advent of warmer weather and the outdoor activities that now beckon, I still find myself indoors tackling the spring cleaning.

Featured Customer | Classic Barn Lighting Sets the Tone in NY Home Remodel
No matter how many houses you call home through the years, the first one is pretty special. For Amanda and her husband, Christopher, the move from a New York apartment to a Cape Cod-style modern farmhouse in Dutchess County was exciting as they started incorporating their own style into the space. “The first remodel consisted of a new master bathroom, refinishing the hardwood floors, and replacing dated mudroom tiles with wood floors,” Amanda says. “We also replaced all of the light fixtures in the house.” Although she didn’t like the existing lights which were wood and iron with candles, Amanda couldn’t put her finger on exactly what...

Barn Light Electric is celebrating nine years in business this month! We’ve come a long way since the early days of operating out of a 100-year-old hardware store in downtown Titusville.

Guest Blogger | Top Ten Elements of Farmhouse Style
There’s nothing more quintessentially cozy than a perfectly appointed farmhouse during the holiday season (or any season, for that matter!).
