With fall trend forecasts spreading like wildfire, we can’t help but ponder the history behind them. Words like “rustic” and “utilitarian” are commonplace influences on the list — but why?
The utilitarian lifestyle emphasizes the pursuit of function and happiness. It makes sense that surrounding ourselves with purpose-filled objects inspire us to be more industrious. As much as we love baubles and bookends, nothing beats a beautifully crafted product that reminds us of our hard-working roots.
Hands down, one of the best things about being at Barn Light Electric is seeing our products in your home. Yesterday we received an email from Christopher Donohue with some of the most adorable product photos we’ve seen in a long time. A month ago, he purchased an antique Hendryx bird feeder from our Vintage Housewares collection to house his little companion, Hazel. We were tickled with the results!
At some point in life, your Summer reading list included classics like To Kill A Mockingbird, A Streetcar Named Desire, or a short story or two from Flannery O’Conner. The Southern gothic genre has been a staple in American literature with its larger-than-life characters, haunting yet familiar settings, and melancholy plot lines. Southern gothic interior design has embraced the weathered ornaments of this genre, and we’ve recently spotted its influence in the Savannah, GA scene.Read More
Nautically inspired interior design takes the cake for this summer’s breakout home decor trend.

We love spaces that make us dream, and that is why we’re looking “up” for the next big interior design trend. It’s time to take our rooms to new heights with aviation inspired decor!
Pull out your model airplanes, it’s time to get aeronautically charged style!
