Featured Customer | New Barn Lights Blend with Vintage Lighting at Historic Hotel
In Monday’s blog post, we started a tour of the historic Red Rose Motel in Roscoe, New York. Originally built in 1938, the motel enjoyed decades of visits from loyal clientele but suffered from neglect in recent years. When current owners discovered this gem tucked away in the Catskill Mountains, they faced a formidable renovation. “The building was in a state of disrepair with major roof problems, rotten fixtures, and dangerous electrical,” says Melissa Kawecki, director of operations and innkeeper. “Our design goal was a nod to the past, celebrating the history of the Red Rose and of the Catskills when it was a premier travel destination....

Featured Customer | Barn Lights Give Nod to Past at Historic Hotel
Tucked amidst the scenic Catskill Mountains in Roscoe, New York, lies a small motel and tavern on the banks of the Beaverkill River. With a colorful history that includes an owner who was a New York City prize fighter, the Red Rose Motel served for decades as a local landmark welcoming fly-fishers, hunters, locals, and big city escapees. In recent years, the motel fell into disrepair and was abandoned until new owners, JP Frenza and Kris Kiger, glimpsed the potential within the old building and began a major renovation. ...

Charlotte, North Carolina, ranks as the country’s fastest growing metro area and is particularly attractive to millennials. The skyline is jammed with soaring steel and glass, sports arenas, and luxury condos, but if you take the time to explore, you can still find pockets of the city’s long and storied history. On a visit this past weekend to the Queen City, we dropped in on ColsenKeane, a custom leather goods shop close to the bustle of downtown. Owners Scott and Taryn Hofert purchased the 61-year-old building last year for their growing business. We took a tour of the space with director of operations Bay Robinson and 7-week-old Elliott, the shop pup. ... Read More

Featured Customer | Porcelain Barn Pendants Grace Historic Florida Church
We love good before-and-after photos! They often show dramatic transformations, but can also visually demonstrate what a difference one single element, like good lighting, can make. Last week, we visited the Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church in nearby Christmas, Florida, where Clarence Canada, a trustee of the church gave us a tour of the historic building. “The first church was built in 1868, but a fire destroyed it,” Clarence told us as we entered the cozy sanctuary. “This building was erected around 1906-1908.” The sanctuary has been lit by different styles of fixtures over the years and, lucky for us, Clarence shared photos to offer a...

Featured Customer | Wall Sconce Lights Add Nautical Flair
When Ann-Marie decided to renovate the master bathroom in her Kennebunkport, Maine, home, she faced more than just a decor update. “The bathroom was so dated, but there was a huge bathtub that took over the entire room,” she says. “Filling that bathtub on the second floor in a building built in 1900 was a pretty scary thought!” The home was built on piers over the water and is an historic fixture in the town. When Ann-Marie started the renovation project, she wanted to stay true to the nautical roots of the home. The master bathroom had a ceiling light and fan but she wanted the vanity light to be a bit more stylish. ... Read More

When Gillian and her husband visited the Teton Valley of southeastern Idaho five years ago, they fell in love with the grandeur of the area. Although they had never done so much as a home improvement project, the couple purchased a two-and-a-half acre lot and began planning to build their forever home. “We broke ground in June 2017 and completed our guest house this past spring,” Gillian says. “We want to be in the Valley as much as we can for vacations until we make it our permanent home in five years.” ...
