While those who live in the oft-rainy city of Vancouver, Canada, may get used to the gloominess of the weather, that doesn’t mean they embrace it in their everyday environments. The design team from Mak Interiors in Vancouver recently infused a shared office space with colorful industrial barn lights to create a happy space for the freelancers and entrepreneurs who work there each day.
“We went for a very eclectic style, a modern-meets-industrial chic,” says Sabrina Chammas, creative director at L’Atelier. “Our members have the option to reserve a desk on a monthly basis or just buy time passes to access certain parts of our space.”... Read More
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.

In his search for exterior barn lights for his new home, Ernest wanted not only high quality, American-made lights, but he wanted fixtures that are dark-sky friendly to minimize nighttime glare.
“We shopped for exterior lighting for quite awhile,” Ernest says. “We wanted U.S.-made which is often difficult to find, and we wanted the light beam to be focused downward. We also wanted a slight vintage look for our Florida-style house.”
