You may remember our post late last fall about an adorable guest cottage in the funky town of Patagonia, Arizona. Claire and her husband Ken had just finished renovating the little casita which has since become a popular spot for tourists looking to enjoy the history and culture of this beautiful area.
After Claire finished sprucing up the cottage with new furnishings, she turned her attention outside where she needed exterior lighting.
“There are no street lights on the road here, and since a lot of our guests arrive after dark, I needed plenty of light for them to unload suitcases and get in safely,” Claire says. ” For the garage, Claire was... Read More
Take one “sad-looking house” on a farm in Virginia, add in a recent retiree with a great eye and sense of delight, and you get one amazing makeover!
“I have admired Barn Light Electric fixtures for a long time,” says Susan Lange of Lexington, Virginia, “and when it came time to renovate, I bolted to your website for inspiration.” The original understated porch was removed and a new porch was added along with new roofing, vertical siding, a new door and windows plus an addition to the left of the house.

This lovely front porch not only has an inviting appeal with its rich wood tones and clapboard siding, but the use of metals adds a definite industrial vibe to the structure. We are loving the addition of the classic gooseneck barn light over the doorway which speaks volumes to the vernacular of a log cabin.
This fixture looks very much like our Starfire Radial Wave Reflector Gooseneck Light which sports a classic design from the 1930s when shades just like this one were often spotted at roadside gas stations. The... Read More
When these southeastern Pennsylvania homeowners decided to replace their dilapidated deck, they turned to the Sonoma County wine country for inspiration. They enjoy their trips to California and wanted a mission-style design for their new outdoor kitchen and patio. Pete Cooper of Spring Creek Design took the reins of the project which included some fun gooseneck barn lighting to help create a cafè-type atmosphere.
“The owners love to travel to Sonoma County, and we wanted to evoke the feeling and style we saw in their vacation pictures,” Pete explains. “A wood-burning fireplace and outdoor cooking area were requirements as was dining and seating... Read More
