While Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer and the end of another school year, the long holiday weekend also kicks off the traditional wedding season. I’m traveling this weekend to Jacksonville for a wedding, and in looking for an appropriate gift, I wanted to find something different, special, and perfect in every way. Definitely not something mass produced and clogging the shelves of every cheesy import and big box store in the country.
So I went to the marketing experts at Barn Light Electric to ask about their picks for the perfect wedding gift, and this top-notch team of promoters were happy to share their favorites.

We can never get enough barnspiration. There’s something so precious about timeless wood siding, rustic decor, and the heritage of pastoral style. It’s just a good thing. When we partnered with Trendland to light up one of their model apartments, we soon discovered how captivating bohemian style interiors can be. Like the industrial farmhouse trend, bohemian interiors appreciate antique detail and elements that are a tad disheveled. Boho interiors explore color and whimsy, and celebrate surrounding ourselves with objects we love.
Maybe it’s time to take a (super momentary) break from the barn and explore our artsy side…

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Autumn, my favorite time of year. I can finally justify my daily cardigans and jeans because at a crisp 74° degrees, why wear anything else?

Autumn is one of the year’s finest seasons. No wonder everyone is “falling” for it. Here are eight ways autumn has captured our hearts…

With fall trend forecasts spreading like wildfire, we can’t help but ponder the history behind them. Words like “rustic” and “utilitarian” are commonplace influences on the list — but why?
The utilitarian lifestyle emphasizes the pursuit of function and happiness. It makes sense that surrounding ourselves with purpose-filled objects inspire us to be more industrious. As much as we love baubles and bookends, nothing beats a beautifully crafted product that reminds us of our hard-working roots.
