We’ve been down home on a Texas ranch this week checking out how custom barn lights create a cohesive look between Renee’s home and barn. Monday’s post featured the exterior of both spaces and Wednesday’s post included the working part of the barn. Today we discover how rustic chandeliers take center stage in a surprising loft space in the barn.
“The tack room in the barn leads upstairs to the gathering room which has a kitchen along one wall,” Renee explains. “The space is really multi-functional. It serves as overflow guest space, a space for farm meetings, and the kitchen serves as extra space for holiday... Read More
Getting pictures from our customers is even more exciting than getting a letter in the mail.
Like a letter written with a pen.
On real paper.
That kind of exciting.
Whenever I see an email pop into my inbox, I often glance at the file size even before I glance at the sender. Those 15 and 20-megabyte messages are guaranteed to hold treasure!
Today’s treasure came, not in an email, but from our Facebook page, which is another great source of photographic treasures.

“This little bungalow checked every item on both of our lists,” Emily says. “I love its character and though it’s completely renovated, the builders did a great job of preserving some of the aspects from its original construction in 1935.” The home is cozy but features tall ceilings and original wood...

It’s cooling off just about everywhere here in the U.S. and we even enjoyed a dip in temps this weekend thanks to the season’s first cold front pushing through. We relished the 79-degree high on Sunday, and lows in the 60s had some people hunting for sweaters and boots!
Fall is a great time to cozy up at home and enjoy the longer evenings once we “fall back” in time. It’s also a great time to infuse warmer colors into your home décor palette. Curl up by the fire with a good book next to the Lovell Task Lamp, an American made table lamp that exudes mid-century style. The conical cup shade is crafted from steel and coated with porcelain...
