In many homes, the basement is often a cold, dark place that serves as little more than storage for off-season items. But sometimes a hidden gem lies waiting to be realized in that unused space below. All it takes is a little inspiration!
Paul and Lynne, of Chantilly, Virginia, always knew their unfinished basement had serious potential. Last fall, after living in their home for eight years, the couple finally started turning one of their unfinished rooms into the home theater they had always pictured.Read More
It’s hard to believe but there was a time when the popular warehouse style light shades were only seen — you guessed it — in warehouses. Or in factories where these barn style pendants provided a wide span of light over a large area — a critical feature where heavy machinery and meticulous work was involved.
Kinda reminds me of the kitchen! Homeowners love our barn pendants like the Wesco Cord Hung Pendant that offers plenty of down lighting onto kitchen islands where homework gets completed, bread gets baked, and slow cups of coffee are consumed with the morning paper.Read More
It’s been a busy week here at Barn Light Electric! One of our favorite food bloggers, Sommer Collier of A Spicy Perspective, is giving away a set of our porcelain enamel bowls this week plus we got a nice plug on CNBC that featured our Solid Copper Bowls as a great American-made gift for the holidays.
So we’ve had a load of new friends popping up on Facebook who are exploring our site for perhaps the very first time. As our name suggests, we do love barn style lighting here. Rustic and rugged RLM-inspired warehouse shades are some of our most popular fixtures, however, we also embrace vintage, mid century modern, and contemporary looks too. If you’ve never browsed our vintage and modern collections, take a peek!Read More
I’m a little behind the 8-ball when it comes to classic television. As much as I enjoy curling up on the couch with a bag of popcorn for a night of per-recorded fun, I’m about a decade behind this band of buddies. I started the first season this week and was surprised about how much I recognized the show’s creative set design. In case you’re like me, pre-Friends, the show originates in the mid-90s and revolves around the lives of six friends. It’s wacky, endearing, and quite colorful.Read More

If you were building a brand new home, what would be on your list of must-haves? A wine cellar? A master-suite spa? Mine would have to include a screened-in porch although the wine cellar would definitely make the list too!
Nothing extends your living space and offers a connection with the great outdoors quite like a porch. When Michelle built her new home on the Blue Hill Peninsula in Maine, she included a porch that features a day bed for quiet afternoons of reading. She chose a barn wall sconce to provide a focused touch of light over the cozy spot.Read More
