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

Summertime and the Living is Outdoors!
With summer in full swing, outdoor dining spaces are getting a workout. Preparing dinner on the grill keeps the heat out of the kitchen, plus it’s easy to throw an extra burger on when friends drop by. The more relaxed mood of outdoor dining is enhanced even more with exterior lighting that lets you linger long after the sun goes down. Our good friend and neighbor Gregory Daniel needed lighting for his grill and outside pool deck. The lights needed to be mounted to an existing wall which called for a gooseneck arm that would take the shade up higher to allow for better positioning over the grill. The 14″ Goodrich® Union Warehouse Shade is customized with a... Read More

Guest Blogger | Nine Elements of American Coastal Style
Different seasons call for different settings: winter makes us crave the cozy cocoon of a cabin in the mountains; fall conjures images of brisk afternoons on a farm; and the warmer months inevitably turn our thoughts to the coast — crashing waves, the smell of salt air, and sand between your toes are as quintessentially summer as it gets. Similarly, we long for these same feelings in our homes: lazy afternoons draped over a crisply slipcovered couch while a gentle breeze blows gauzy linen curtains. This style, dubbed American Coastal, is defined by relaxation, comfort, and the casualness that summer is all about. Here’s how to get this laid-back style in your... Read More

Professional's Corner | Nautical Lighting Highlights Coastal Renovation
When Stacy Moher, owner of Living Interiors of Connecticut, tackled the renovation of a coastal home, she simply looked to the horizon for inspiration. “I created a soothing color palette of whites and mostly blues and greens that reflect the location of the home overlooking the ocean. I also wanted some nautical touches,” Stacy says. The designer was responsible for the entire layout of the home plus the sourcing of flooring, tile, furniture, cabinetry, lighting, and wall, window and ceiling treatments. The complete gut renovation of the home, located in Milford, Connecticut, started shortly after new homeowners purchased it. ... Read More
