Designers love to push the envelope sometimes and take risks with interior decorating. For this kitchen renovation in Decatur, Georgia, the client couldn’t be happier with the creative work of Julie Holloway and Anisa Darnell of Milk and Honey Home. In a bold move, the duo chose some classic angle shades for over the kitchen sink.
“We know they are typically used for outdoor sign lighting, but we just love the old vintage feel they give,” explains Anisa. “We needed a sconce that would have a long enough arm to stick out past the shelf over the window and reflect back onto the collection of dishes. And the angle shade did just that! It was a risk worth taking!” Lending the perfect angle of light are three 8″ Frontier Angle Shades in a White finish with a G8 gooseneck arm in a contrasting Black finish.Read More

One of our favorite west coast spots is Portland, Oregon, an edgy, eclectic city full of interesting neighborhoods and a vibrant beer scene. Portland is also a favorite with foodies who love not only the robust array of food trucks lining the streets, but the growing number of restaurants that help land the city on numerous Top Ten lists. On your next trip to Stumptown, don’t miss Canteen, a delightful neighborhood café designed by the creative team at Von Tundra. Along with Canteen owner Brian Heck, the team created a space to become not so much the sum of its materials, but more decidedly an experience in itself.Read More
Few renovation projects are truly complete the first time around. For Amanda, in Atlanta, Georgia, it took several years, in fact, to get her garage reveal-ready for her blog called Dixie Delights. When she purchased her home, the original garage door was solid wood and 40 years old. She backed into it a couple of years ago knocking it off the track and knocking renovation plans into overdrive.Read More
