Creating the right atmosphere in a place of business can mean the difference between wild success, mediocrity, or dismal failure. While two businesses may offer the exact same products or services, the space that draws people in and makes them feel comfortable with amenities and, dare we say, great lighting, will gain more attention in the marketplace.
Troy Rinehardt, co-owner of Men’s Hair House, understands this completely and has created a highly successful chain of men’s hair salons that cater not only to adults but to younger boys and children as well.
“We wanted it to feel manly and classy at the same time,” Troy says, “yet... Read More
When building a new space, you can look at all the drawings, plans, and photos you want, but you just never know until the dust has settled how it will all come together. When Traci of Pawcatuck, Connecticut, began working with Country Carpenters, Inc. on a new barn for her property, the structure was meant to be a simple two-car garage with storage space upstairs. But when all was said and done, she decided it was too beautiful for storage.
“It has exceeded my expectations! The upstairs is so lovely that I have opted to keep that space open for parties,” Traci says. “We are having our first event Thanksgiving Day!”

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
Although September is half over and the autumnal equinox will occur in less than a week, there’s still time to enjoy our outdoor spaces just a bit longer. Unless you live in Colorado where it snowed last Friday!
When our staff photographers visited Tybee Island, Georgia, last week, the weather was warm but rainy. And while you might think the inclement weather put a damper on their outdoor activities, the ladies made good use of this beautiful wrap-around porch at the Sea Star Cottage, one of more than two dozen cottages managed by Mermaid Cottages.
This particular cottage was built in the 1930s and the deep porch is perfect for rocking away the hours while... Read More
Something about being at the beach makes everything more relaxed. Even commercial businesses that set up shop near the sand and salt air have a laid-back vibe whether they’re selling t-shirts or tires. The recently opened Yellow Dog Eats Kitchen & Bar in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, offers just such a casual place to enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine and a signature sandwich. And since it’s right up the coast, our photographer took advantage and traveled up to Yellow Dog to check out their new digs.
The owner, Fish Morgan, trained at the Culinary Institute of America in New York, and while he knows his way around the kitchen, he turned to his mom... Read More
