Laundry rooms aren’t usually the space you consider for having a good time. The living room, yes. The porch, sure. Even the kitchen. But the laundry room — not so much.
When Anne, a resident of Baton Rouge, decided to remodel her laundry room, she wanted to add something fun and stylish to liven up the space.
“Many designers here recommend the same furniture, the same lighting,” Anne says, “and I wanted something that is not common in Baton Rouge.” During a visit to a friend’s house, Anne spotted The Original™ Flush Mount Pendant. She knew she’d found her something different. Anne chose a 14″ shade and... Read More
If you could change one thing about your kitchen, what would it be? New hardware on the cabinets? Maybe polished concrete counter tops instead of granite?
Gary and JoHannah of Austin, Texas, targeted their modern pendant lighting. One of the features of their kitchen is a vintage Chambers gas stove and they searched for something more appropriate to complement the appliance.
“We wanted to give the kitchen a new look and increase the amount of light we have in there,” Gary says. The couple selected the Brisbane Cord Hung Pendant to bring some rustic industrial swagger to their space. They customized these kitchen lights with a 14″ shade, Navy... Read More
Did you ever think you would see the words “warehouse lighting” and “nursery” in the same sentence? Perhaps not, but when you have an artist’s eye, you can make warehouse lighting work, and beautifully so, in a nursery.
Rachel is an artist who creates prints from her hand-drawn and painted artwork for her Etsy shop called Lazy Sunday Studios. When her first baby was about to be born, Rachel and her husband transformed their home office/studio into a nursery for baby Ryder.
“I always wanted something outdoorsy for a nursery without being overly themey or babyish,” Rachel says. “My husband and I both love being outside... Read More

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
We all fell in love with silver, didn’t we? When those sleek, high-tech-looking finishes took over the design world, they pervaded every room of our house from stainless steel refrigerators and nickel plumbing fixtures to chrome chandeliers. In recent years, however, another shiny metal has been sneaking back into our lives. And we’re happy to say that the bold, and warmer, look of brass is back!
This centuries-old metal, known for its gold-like appearance, is actually a copper and zinc alloy. It conveys a sense of luxury and timelessness that many people desire for their home. Warmer than its silver cousins, brass harkens back to a simpler time when... Read More
