Pro's Corner | Barn Pendant Lights Establish Inviting Feel to Cafe
The humble coffee shop. No matter if you live in a small town or in the heart of New York City, your local coffee shop likely serves up much more than a hot cuppa Joe. It’s a gathering place for friends, a spot to relax and read, and a hub of information for locals and out-of-towners alike. In Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Café One Eight is a locally owned shop in the heart of the historic downtown. In business for more than four years, the owners decided it was time for a refresh of the space. They turned to Chris and Claudia Beiler of Creative Space Designers to handle the complete remodel. ... Read More

Pro's Corner | Nautical Chandelier Adds Fun, Pool Vibe to Bath
We call it the renovation ripple effect. When you remodel one space then realize an adjoining space now looks rather old and tired in comparison. Such was the case in Scarsdale, New York, when a homeowner added a pool and outdoor entertaining space. The adjoining mudroom and bath, original to the home, was suddenly in dire need of an update. “Everything was ripped out including the tile, sink, stall shower, and toilet,” says Lisa Tessler of Link Interiors. “We started from scratch.
