I just returned from a whirlwind trip to Atlanta where I attended the Design Bloggers Conference along with more than 400 bloggers, interior designers, and suppliers from around the country. The experience was invigorating and not just because one of the free gifts was a German-made shower head with a massaging whirl spray!
The lineup of speakers included the lovely and always entertaining Candice Olson, host of HGTV’s Divine Design and Candice Tells All. She dished about her background, her inspirations, and her thoughts on lighting.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 business for more than 50 years, the Friendly Bake Shop of Frankfort, New York, was struggling. Too few options in the display case, a dingy, dated space, and three generations of family members with differing ideas on how to move the family business into the future.

Barn Light Electric was proud to support this family business with some porcelain enamel barn lighting to light up their new look!Read More
In yesterday’s blog, we took you to the set of DIY’s reality show House Crashers where Barn Light Electric gooseneck warehouse shades took center stage on the exterior of this dramatic remodel. Today we venture inside where modern ceiling fans, rustic sconces, and more warehouse shades play starring roles. Homeowners Rachel Dissell and husband Tim Harrison live in the historic Tremont neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio, and wanted to turn the old butcher shop that fronts their 100-year-old home into a family room. House Crashers Host Josh Temple jumped on the opportunity to bring in his crew to make their dreams come true.Read More
If you’re a fan of the DIY network, then you’ve probably seen Josh Temple in action. As the host of the reality show House Crashers, Temple wanders around home improvement stores asking people what kind of projects they’re working on then tries to convince them to let him help. Reactions range from the polite “I’m all set, but thanks” to the very direct, “I’m gonna call the cops if you follow me home.”Read More
