It’s Sunday morning and we have classic, whimsical spaces on the brain. We’re dreaming of the perfect place to our enjoy freshly brewed coffee and homemade banana bread…a Nostalgic Americana Kitchen! In our cozy dream kitchen, we’d opt out of the stereotypical red-white-and-blue scheme while keeping our favorite time-honored accents like graniteware and patchwork.
Let the light in with open and airy windows. Let the sun create a reflected color palette by lining salvaged wine bottles and vintage oil containers in the window pane. Fill them with fresh wildflowers and dried herbs for a natural accent.Read More
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
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
We were thrilled when Pantone announced that Emerald green was the 2013 Color of the Year. This hue is not only a seasonal favorite, but will stay fresh in the coming year. For this Style Me Sunday, our muse was one of our lovely Green with Envy pins. It’s time to add some vigor and life to your kitchen with pops of Emerald!
Emerald green subway tile have been en vogue for quite some time. Adding color to your back-splash creates dynamic visuals and clean surfaces. American-made kitchen furniture like The Urbanization Factory Utility Cart and the Industrial Factory Backless Stool is a great way to add to the industrialized flair in your kitchen. With their compact sizes, these pieces can travel with you as you move about your kitchen.
Pendant lighting with green finishes like porcelain Vintage Green and Patina help incorporate more of the hue into your Emerald kitchen. Pairing RLM style pendants like the Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief Warehouse Porcelain Pendants ensure that your workspace will have ample lighting! For a more diffused, softer look, try Barn Light Electric’s new Schoolhouse Patina Copper Stem Lights.
We were inspired by the kitchen’s retro accessories like the enamelware cups and pitcher. For a similar look, try some Enamelware Cups. For a hip, earthy look we included some French-style, striped Linen Hand Towels and a Canvas Basket with Handles.
While emerald green may assume the spotlight for the next year, the color has been a staple in lighting finishes for years. Here are some of our favorite shades—some modern, some vintage!Read More
