Growing families often find themselves getting creative when it comes to adding more children to the house. Jessica Sloan, owner of Coastal Kitchen & Bath in Victoria, Texas, recently turned her remodeling skills to her own home after her fourth child was born.
“We have a new baby so, with four girls, we had to consolidate children for lack of better words,” Jessica says. “Four-year-old Lyrik and baby Piper are now together because the little one cared the least about sharing a room.” Jessica, who has been building and remodeling kitchens and bathrooms for more than 10 years wanted the girls’ space to be light, bright, and airy...

Halloween may have brought out the ghosts and goblins but it also brought out a crowd in Atlanta for the opening of Gusto! Wood Fire Grill. Located in the Brookwood neighborhood and owned by former NFL quarterback Nate Hybl, the new eatery offers a fast-casual dining experience in a bright, industrial setting.
Teaming up to create the perfect mood for the new space were Lindsay Denman Brand Creative, a boutique Atlanta-based branding agency, and PSG Construction.
“We wanted to create a light, casual, industrial look that would provide an in-town, city vibe,” says Lindsay, “We wanted to telegraph an affordable, everyday restaurant. It was... Read More
If you’re leaf peeping this fall and enjoying a drive through the countryside, you may find more than nature’s brilliant display of gold and crimson. Depending on where you live, you may very well find an old barn or two still providing shelter for cows and crops. Many of these old structures have classic gooseneck barn lighting that was popular back in the early 20th century. These American-made fixtures typically had wide, warehouse-style shades that directed the light downward onto the ground and over doorways making it easier for farmers to see without a lot of glare.
These sturdy gooseneck lights are popular once again thanks to the resurgence... Read More
While we absolutely love when customers share pohtos of their projects with us, it’s even better when we get to revisit with old friends as they tackle new projects.
Long-time readers of the blog may remember Amy Jacobs and the Bradford Avenue home she renovated back in 2011. Amy took that home from a water-damaged nightmare to a cozy, lived-in, rustic space with lots of texture and plenty of vintage industrial lighting.
Amy sold the Bradford Avenue house to her sister and moved into a new home in a neighborhood near the popular 12th Avenue South area in Nashville. Reconnecting with contractor Brad Skipper, Amy has created yet another showstopper of a home,... Read More
In the northern reaches of Quebec, Canada, winters can get pretty brutal. At least by our sunny Florida standards! Our friends at Seulement Camion (that’s “trucks only” for non-native speakers) recently opened their new business in La Sarre and needed lights that could not only withstand the environment, but would provide a welcoming atmosphere to truck-buying customers.
The new space uses plenty of rustic elements throughout such as reclaimed barn wood walls, inviting leather chairs, and an earthy palette of browns and grays brightened with barn red accents. Industrial lighting in the form of gooseneck lights, warehouse shade pendants, and... Read More
The wall sconce has come a long way since the medieval days of glowing torches lining long, dark hallways in the castle. No other light is more versatile in helping create the proper mood in a room by offering a spot of light just where you need it.
Wall sconces are often a critical piece of the puzzle when interior designers layer light in a room. Achieving the proper balance among different types of lights helps create the mood — too much light makes a room feel sterile while too little light makes a space less inviting and less safe to maneuver in.
And while some light fixtures serve specific needs and spaces, the utilitarian wall sconce resides quite... Read More
