Wire Guard Pendant, Gooseneck Barn Light Give Home Industrial Vibe

If you’re looking for some farmhouse inspiration, look no further than Kelly’s pole barn home in northern Indiana. This is the land where Kelly’s husband’s great grandparents raised seven children and where Kelly has created the home of her dreams. The house is full of rustic industrial touches including in two of the bathroom spaces that Kelly chose to share with us. In the half bath off her new kitchen, Kelly chose some classic gooseneck barn lighting to highlight the space.

“This little bathroom was perfect because it’s the bathroom everyone uses when they visit,” Kelly says. “I grew up playing in our old barn and I collect barn antiques, so I wanted a space to display some of my antiques that brought me back to my childhood.” Kelly selected a 14″ Outback Gooseneck Light to highlight the apron front sink and mirror. The galvanized finish blends well with the corrugated tin wall, and the red guard Kelly chose adds a nice pop of color.

“I wanted something you typically don’t find inside a home and that would set the mood for the space,” Kelly says. “I couldn’t have found anything more perfect than this.” In the master bath, Kelly wanted a cozy, luxurious atmosphere, but when the room was complete, she wasn’t quite happy with the look.

“It was almost too fancy and needed something to create a more rustic feel,” she says. Kelly chose the Barn Light Wire Guard Industrial Pendant in a Rust finish with Amber glass so the fixture can serve as an accent light that can be turned on as a night light or to create a cozy, relaxing atmosphere while she soaks in the tub. This simple, American made guard-and-glass fixture is wet rated so it can be hung indoors with a cord, like Kelly’s, or outdoors with an optional stem mount. It lends an industrial touch to any residential or commercial setting.

“This light was perfect to hang in front of the window and your eyes are instantly drawn to it setting the rustic cabin atmosphere,” Kelly says. “I love rust. Every room needs at least one rusty piece in it.”
