When Lisa and Greg bought their home in 2010, it was only four years old, but they were already thinking about renovations, an addition, and updating the lighting.
“The original house is post-and-beam, a rustic-lux style,” Lisa says. “With the addition and renovations, we added huge windows to improve our view and bring in more nature. With polished concrete floors and rustic lighting, the addition is more industrial chic.”
The couple’s home is located smack in the middle of Lake Champlain in North Hero, Vermont, where winter days can be short and cloudy. Having plenty of light options inside brightens the space and allows the family to... Read More
What’s your favorite workout? Running? Weight training? Combination classes at a gym?
One of the newest hot spots in Columbia, South Carolina, features barre3, a program that combines the grace of ballet with the wisdom of yoga and the strength of Pilates. Owner Lauren Truslow recently created a new venue for her clients and her aim was a clean, airy space with elements of southern charm. She sought help from designer Teal Davison of Teal Davison Design + Finish.
“We wanted comfortable, clean, fun, and relaxed like home,” Teal says, “but cooler, more Portland-esque.” The pair chose easy-to-customize barn wall sconces from Barn... Read More
I got an email not long ago from a Barn Light customer who told me she was moving to a new home and would be ordering more lights soon. She had already renovated one home and was now starting over. I had to laugh when she wrote, “But don’t worry. I’m taking my favorite Jadite barn light with me!”
I’m sure she’ll be happy to know that many of our wall sconces now feature a plug-in option making them quite portable and flexible enough to fit into many home plans and design schemes.
Many of our most popular wall lights are now part of our Apartment Lighting Collection which features fixtures that can be hardwired into the wall or... Read More
If you’re on the hunt for lighting, you’ve probably noticed the endless array of choices when it comes to pendant lighting. But what if you have a space that is not suited for a dangling cord-hung pendant? Even one with the lovely red-and-white twist cord you’ve had your eye on?
Flush mount lighting — those fixtures that hug tightly to walls and ceilings — may not be as popular as cord or stem mount lighting, but these versatile fixtures can be the perfect solution for some spaces. With our ever-expanding collection of flush mount lights, you don’t have to settle for a basic fluorescent fixture from the big-box store. Barn Light... Read More
While we absolutely love when customers share pohtos of their projects with us, it’s even better when we get to revisit with old friends as they tackle new projects.
Long-time readers of the blog may remember Amy Jacobs and the Bradford Avenue home she renovated back in 2011. Amy took that home from a water-damaged nightmare to a cozy, lived-in, rustic space with lots of texture and plenty of vintage industrial lighting.
Amy sold the Bradford Avenue house to her sister and moved into a new home in a neighborhood near the popular 12th Avenue South area in Nashville. Reconnecting with contractor Brad Skipper, Amy has created yet another showstopper of a home,... Read More
Although we have about three weeks left of Daylight Savings Time, the cooler weather and shorter days are definite harbingers of the season to come. And though we moaned about losing an hour of sleep last March, we get that precious hour back on November 2nd.
While many people have given up wearing a watch in favor of a phone strapped to their side, having clocks on display in the home is a great way to have functional artwork in your space. Our Vintage Timekeeping Collection offers something a little more stylish than a tablet to keep track of time at home or in the office.
The Metro Clock, shown here in the kitchen, has an easy-to-read dial with a slightly... Read More
