Guest Blogger | One Blake Soho Pendant, Three Different Styles
A few months ago, I kicked off a fun series where I choose one Barn Light Electric fixture and style it three different ways to illustrate the endless versatility of a well-made light. In that first post, I featured just three of the many different ways the classic Schoolhouse Brass Stem Mount Light can be used to create distinct and unique spaces. This month, with spring on the brain, I’m all about the Blake Soho Pendant in Blush Pink — a classic shape that resembles those May flowers we’re anxiously awaiting, in an immensely popular color in both interiors and fashion. ...

A Look Back at our Favorite Spaces 2017 | Part Two
Earlier this week, we hopped on the year-end-review bandwagon for a look back at some of our favorite spaces of 2017. This post included a gorgeous barn with copper pendants, a dreamy bathroom, and one of our absolute favorite kitchens of all time. Today we continue our tour starting off with a project that featured our Original™ Warehouse Gooseneck Light. When we introduced a new palette of finish colors earlier this year, interior designers were quick to embrace the bright new hues. The owners of Alice+Bird Interiors in York Beach, Maine, chose a happy Watermelon finish for this exterior wall light. ... 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.

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
