Featured Customer | American-Made Barn Lights Bring Timeless Look to Coastal Home

That spot turned out to be Sullivan’s Island, a narrow spit of land just outside of Charleston, where Steve has created his dream home full of southern charm, period details, and authentic barn lighting. “We live on the edge of an historic district with many period homes,” Steve says. “We wanted to build a residence that looked like it was constructed in the 1930s and complemented the classic architecture that defines the surrounding neighborhood.” ...

Professional's Corner | Kitchen Pendant Lighting Pops in Neutral Space
In my Monday morning meander through Houzz, I spotted this post on how to bring balance to an all-white kitchen.
