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

Color Inspiration for Spring | Delphite Blue
One of the things I like best about spring is the reemergence of color. Delicate purple flowers, bright green grass, and pale pink cherry blossoms all brighten up the world and chase the winter blues away. But there’s one blue you might want to keep around all year long. Our porcelain enamel palette of colors features an array of hues, from traditional Black and Vintage Green to more vivid Yellow and Cherry Red. But Delphite Blue gets the nod today! Reminiscent of a freshly laid robin’s egg, Delphite Blue offers a creamy pastel shade while still maintaining the high-gloss finish indicative of porcelain enamel.  ... Read More

Porcelain Enamel Dinnerware Makes a Splash on the Table
It’s been almost four years since Barn Light Electric revived the lost art of manufacturing porcelain enamel lighting.

Featured Customer | Porcelain Lighting a Perfect Fit for 175-Year-Old Farmhouse
Back in the mid 1800s when Ken’s Kentucky farmhouse was first built, the kitchen was a separate building. Thankfully, the kitchen is now connected to the main house via a back porch so there are no dashes through the rain just to eat dinner. “We’ve been working on the place for more than 21 years now,” Ken says. “The interior walls are solid and 18 inches thick which makes plumbing, heating, and electrical improvements tough.” When Ken started looking to upgrade his lighting, he wanted to maintain the classic farmhouse look.
