With the latest blast of frigid air to roar into the United States, it’s officially time to turn our attention inside where it’s warm and cozy. For the next six weeks in particular, many of us will be focusing on our living and dining rooms in anticipation of the arrival of family and guests for the holiday festivities.
There are many touches you can add to your home to make it feel warm and inviting. A wood accent wall, soft throws or pillows in deep colors tossed on the couch, and rustic lighting are all great choices for giving your space a comfortable and stylish look.
Our collection of rustic lighting, which includes pendants, wall sconces, and... 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
It’s cooling off just about everywhere here in the U.S. and we even enjoyed a dip in temps this weekend thanks to the season’s first cold front pushing through. We relished the 79-degree high on Sunday, and lows in the 60s had some people hunting for sweaters and boots!
Fall is a great time to cozy up at home and enjoy the longer evenings once we “fall back” in time. It’s also a great time to infuse warmer colors into your home décor palette. Curl up by the fire with a good book next to the Lovell Task Lamp, an American made table lamp that exudes mid-century style. The conical cup shade is crafted from steel and coated with porcelain...

If you follow Barn Light Electric on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you saw our team of photographers heading up the coast last week to Tybee Island, Georgia. The crew makes the journey once or twice a year to have a three-day photo shoot with some of our newest products. The owners and staff of Mermaid Cottages graciously allow us to use their vacation cottages as settings for the photos, and our crew always looks forward to their time on Tybee.
After settling into the Sea Star Cottage, the ladies started unpacking the boxes of lights and accessories that made the trip from Titusville. This cottage was built in the early 1930s and is full of original heart pine... Read More
Climactic world events often influence our culture in many ways. The Bauhaus movement was born as World War I came to an end in 1919 and the world focused on trying to make sense out of five years of struggle, hardship, and loss. With perhaps an overwhelming desire to start fresh, designs took on a clean and sensible approach, and items that could be easily mass produced took hold as people put their lives back together.
Decades later, the Mid-Century Modern movement branched off and featured utilitarian and functional pieces such as Charles and Ray Eames chairs, Robin Day tables, and clocks by Howard Miller.
In today’s modern home, we often find smooth... Read More
