How To | Plug-In Lighting Offers Instant Makeover
Don’t look now but we’re on the downhill side of July.  Seriously. If you haven’t tackled your summer remodeling projects yet, we understand.

But don’t worry about scheduling the electrician (he’s probably at the beach anyway). We’re talking about some of the most stylish, easy-to-customize, plug-in lighting you’ve ever... Read More

Enter to Win a 12-Piece Enamelware Breakfast Set
Sometimes accidents lead to happy endings. And in one case, a delicious ending! For Sommer, the creative mind and spirit behind A Spicy Perspective, an accident with cheesecake batter led to her creation of Cheesecake Dip. Which leads us to ask, “Why has no one thought of this before?!” No baking. No crust. Just dipping the good stuff right out of the bowl! Barn Light Electric has partnered with Sommer in the past as she has remodeled and updated her home in Asheville, North Carolina. Sommer’s kitchen got an update back in 2013 with some stylish LED lighting (you can read about that massive project here) and, a year later, she transformed... Read More

How To Chase Away Winter's Shadows with Accent Lighting
