Featured Customer | Barn Lights Offer Casual, Rustic Style
Sometimes you have to raise the roof. Not raise a ruckus, but literally raise the roof. That’s exactly what Jenny and her husband did when they tackled a gut renovation of their Millbrook, New York, home. The major renovation included an addition and rebuild of the second floor. The result is a stunning 6,500-square-foot modern farmhouse chock full of laid-back style. “We were going for a casual, rustic feel throughout with fixtures and finishes that still look good even as style trends change over time,” Jenny says. “Remodeling and design are hobbies that I love and I put together idea books on Houzz to design the spaces.” ...

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

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

Annie isn’t quite sure when the 2-car garage was added to their southwestern Connecticut home. The home was built in 1900 and the detached garage sits at the rear of the property taking up valuable play space for her kids. “It’s basically part of the back yard and would never be allowed now with planning and zoning,” Annie says. “We see it from the dining room and kitchen so we wanted it to look less like a garage and more like a cottage.” ...

Featured Customer | American-Made Barn Lights Bring Timeless Look to Coastal Home
When Steve packed up and moved from New Jersey to South Carolina two years ago, he felt compelled to find the perfect spot for a new home. That spot turned out to be Sullivan’s Island, a narrow spit of land just outside of Charleston, where Steve has created his dream home full of southern charm, period details, and authentic barn lighting. “We live on the edge of an historic district with many period homes,” Steve says. “We wanted to build a residence that looked like it was constructed in the 1930s and complemented the classic architecture that defines the surrounding neighborhood.” ...
