When Ron started chasing his dream of building a timber frame home in northern Idaho, his vision included lots of wood, earth tones, and a classic feel.
“No fake wood or gimmicks,” he says. Ron’s dream is now reality in a 2,572-square-foot hybrid timber frame home full of real western red cedar, tile floors, granite counters, and classic barn lighting.

We’ve been down home on a Texas ranch this week checking out how custom barn lights create a cohesive look between Renee’s home and barn. Monday’s post featured the exterior of both spaces and Wednesday’s post included the working part of the barn. Today we discover how rustic chandeliers take center stage in a surprising loft space in the barn.
“The tack room in the barn leads upstairs to the gathering room which has a kitchen along one wall,” Renee explains. “The space is really multi-functional. It serves as overflow guest space, a space for farm meetings, and the kitchen serves as extra space for holiday... Read More
There’s nothing more fun than scrolling through our Instagram feed and seeing one of our handcrafted lights pop up in a photo. And boy, did we slow down and check out this photo! Taken by Amanda O’Rourke, a photo and environmental stylist, this shot features our Schoolhouse Chain Hung Pendant which hangs in Amanda’s dining room.
