Designers love to push the envelope sometimes and take risks with interior decorating. For this kitchen renovation in Decatur, Georgia, the client couldn’t be happier with the creative work of Julie Holloway and Anisa Darnell of Milk and Honey Home.

“We know they are typically used for outdoor sign lighting, but we just love the old vintage feel they give,” explains Anisa. “We needed a sconce that would have a long enough arm to stick out past the shelf over the window and reflect back onto the collection of dishes. And the angle shade did just that! It was a risk worth taking!” Lending the perfect angle of light are three 8″ Frontier Angle Shades in a White finish with a G8 gooseneck arm in a contrasting Black finish.Read More

To highlight this new restaurant, the SMA team, along with their builder - Pinnacle Commercial Interiors, chose a variety of lighting fixtures.Read More
