Pro's Corner | Traditional Barn Light Shows Off Playful Color
Classic gooseneck barn lights typically cry out for traditional finish colors. Black, galvanized, and even vintage green are often the perfect choice.

On Wednesday, we started a tour of a gorgeous new farmhouse in northwest Ohio that many people mistake as a thoughtful renovation of an older home.

Ryan and his wife designed the home and chronicled the build on Instagram @OhFarmhouse. In Wednesday’s post, we checked out the front porch where the family enjoys watching the flow of the neighborhood. This popular spot is highlighted by two Original™ Stem Mount Pendants. ...

Building a home is not for the faint of heart. From endless searches for inspiration, hiring an architect to create the home of your dreams to lining up a builder to bring the plans to life, the process is chock full of decisions, delays, and dollars. When Meaghan and her husband decided to build a home on 30 acres outside Stockholm, Wisconsin, they took matters into their own hands. “We built the house ourselves on weekends beginning in 2005,” she says. “In 2011, we built a barn for our two horses and started living in our new home full time.” Work continued last summer in the kitchen and dining area where Meaghan installed new kitchen counters...
