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

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

If you missed this post last week, it’s worth a look. Our friend Erin, who writes The Sunny Side Up blog, chose the Drake Retro Desk Lamp for her son’s room and the results are fabulous!

As Erin browsed the Barn Light Electric website looking at lamps, our 12-Piece Dipped Enamel Breakfast Set also caught her eye. ... Read More

When Nancy and her husband Charlie moved into their Charlottesville, Virginia, home back in 2013, it was a homecoming of sorts for Charlie. “This was my husband’s grandfather’s house which was built in 1910,” Nancy says. “Charlie lived here until he was six years old and remembers having no central heat or indoor plumbing.” Luckily, the outhouse Charlie remembers off the back porch has been replaced with indoor plumbing. The couple has been renovating the home, updating rooms to make them more user friendly while still keeping the bones and farmhouse style of the home intact. The kitchen underwent the biggest transformation. ... Read More
