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.Read More

When Lea purchased a home last summer on Cape Cod, she didn’t simply buy a vacation place — it was a major remodeling project. Thus far, the family has removed two layers of carpet and refinished the original fir flooring, removed a layer of linoleum in the kitchen, replaced damaged ceilings throughout the home, painted every room, and converted the attic into a bedroom for the boys. Whew!
“We have attempted to retain the charm and character of the house and have resisted the urge to knock down walls or otherwise modernize our 1913 bungalow,” Lea says. “That creates some challenges but I think it will all be worth it in the end.” Upstairs in the attic, Lea installed a mini-split heat and AC unit, an insulated knee wall for storage, and a classic barn pendant light to brighten up this cozy spot. The Original™ Warehouse Pendant is one of our most popular RLM-inspired warehouse shades thanks to the dozens of ways you can customize this fixture to fit almost any décor, both residential and commercial.Read More
Ah, summer is here and the livin’ is easy! While most of us still have our day-to-day lives to attend to, summer does bring on a more relaxed atmosphere with warm weather, cookouts, and longer days to enjoy friends and family. Early summer is especially nice when you can throw wide the doors and windows and enjoy a pleasant breeze. You can help Mother Nature by installing ceiling fans throughout your home to keep the air moving on a still day. While a ceiling fan will not cool your home, it does make you feel cooler thanks to the wind chill on your skin.
This soothing bedroom space is accented by our Machine Age Galvanized Ceiling Fan, part of our collection of Vintage Ceiling Fans. This eye-catching fixture takes on the rugged style of the Industrial Age with its completely galvanized motor housing and the option for 100 percent galvanized metal blades. The blades come in 42″ or 52″ sizes and in your choice of five colors including silver, maple, and mahogany. You can further customize this fan with different downrod lengths and a slope adapter.
To add even more function and style, consider adding a light kit to the fan which comes with an RLM inspired warehouse shade or a cast guard and glass fixture. The glass can be customized with clear, frosted, or ribbed glass to suit your style and space. And don’t forget a fan control so you don’t have to move out of that comfy chair to adjust the light or fan speed! A variety of controls are available including a handheld remote or a wall/remote combination.
If you love the industrial look of the Machine Age Fan, don’t miss our entire collection of Industrial Ceiling Fans which come in a variety of sizes and styles to suit most any residential or commercial space. Then chill out and enjoy summer!Read More
Who says nurseries have to be all pastel pink, blue, or mint green? Certainly not Alykhan Velji, a Calgary designer who created this stunning nursery for a client using a sophisticated palette of grey, white, and yellow. And tying the room full of textures, patterns, and fabrics together is what Alykhan calls a “gorgeous and unique light fixture that really plays a big role.” That fixture is none other than a 12″ Benjamin™ Dino Porcelain Stem Mount Light, part of Barn Light Electric’s collection of Porcelain Enamel Lighting.Read More
We were in for a treat when Lauren, our photographer, stumbled across one of our new favorite vacation locations—the Mermaid Cottages. Their charming interiors full of vibrant walls, rustic accents, and shabby chic décor captivated us–of course we had to be their friends! We were inspired by their many rental cottages located on Tybee Island, so today’s Style Me Sunday is all about the “cottage charm, coastal calm” of their Inlet Breeze master bedroom.Read More
