Remember our last Style Me Sunday spotlighting utilitarian spaces? This week we’re looking at the room most of us dread: The Laundry Room.
Let’s take a moment to switch our sentiments from the tediousness of folding laundry and sorting out whites to reflect on the good elements of doing laundry. Everyone loves the feeling of swaddling warm towels fresh from the dryer, and the scent of mountain fresh laundry detergent is quite refreshing.Read More
If you love the coastal look but are landlocked miles from the sea, you can still create a refreshing retreat with plenty of maritime touches like today’s Featured Customer Fred who has a lovely lakefront home in Sparta, New Jersey. Fred recently remodeled a bathroom in his home and added rustic pendants and a rustic vanity sconce for some nautical style.
“I like the beach look as opposed to the cabin look,” Fred says. “And I wanted something different than the cookie cutter fixtures from the home centers.” Fred first saw Barn Light Electric products on Houzz. He chose two of our 12″ Barn Light Blue Collar Pendants in a Medium Blue finish with clear glass and a standard white cord for the center of the space.Read More
When we spotted the utilitarian interiors of the Barista Parlour on Zarna’s Runway, we got the impression that someone on their interior design team had a little crush on vintage-inspired pendant lighting. With its high, vaulted ceilings, exposed wiring, and masculine wood accents, this coffee shop plays up the rustic side of commercial design. You can get this look by incorporating some of these antiquated details.
Breathe new life into old nautical and state flags by displaying them as wall ornamentations. This nostalgic State of Oregon Flag would look great on display and would be a great way to infuse color into your space!
Rooms with high ceilings are ideal for creative lighting displays. In this shop, we love that they combined bare bulb pendants with old warehouse shades to reflect different volumes of light. Barn Light Electric manufactures many similar hanging pendants like the Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief Warehouse Porcelain Pendant, the Ivanhoe™ Conoco Porcelain Pendant, and the Indy Porcelain Socket Pendant. Juxtapose this industrial lighting with something more refined like the Central Park Swing Arm Sconce.
The industrial-style interiors are making the transition from winter trend to spring must-have — so start your space today!

What’s the first thing you see when you stumble through the door after a long week? A stack of bills on that hand-me-down side table? An old coat rack overwhelmed with clutter? Or is it just too dark to see anything because you haven’t replaced that outdated flush mount fixed to the ceiling? Foyers and entryways are high traffic spaces that often go overlooked. Who says utilitarian rooms can’t make you smile?Read More
While we are definitely still in the throes of winter no matter what that pesky groundhog predicted, our minds are wandering ahead to spring when flip flops and tank tops will reign supreme. This is a great time to clean out and spruce up your boat house or dock area so you’ll be ready for that first warm day. Perhaps your nautical lighting needs an upgrade? Wall sconces and pendants for wet locations need to be rugged enough to withstand the environment but who says they can’t be ultra stylish too?Read More
Savannah, Georgia, is one of those cities that just oozes southern charm and happens to be home to our good friend Joel Snayd of Rethink Design Studio. Joel works with both residential and commercial clients in the Savannah area with a focus on showcasing each client’s personality through design. We featured some of Joel’s work in a blog last August where he used the All Weather Gooseneck Farm Light for a home on Tybee Island. Today we take a peek at a lovely dining room that Joel created featuring some beautiful rustic sconces.Read More
