Cheryl infused tropical hues into the space with our Ivanhoe™ Dino Porcelain Pendant Lights in a creamy Jadite finish. Today, we cross the Sunshine State to visit another one of Cheryl’s project sites, this time in Sarasota where she tackled transforming a former oyster bar into a Mexican restaurant.Read More

New paint and a new light were in order, and Carrie chose our All Weather Gooseneck Farm Light from the Discount Barn Lighting collection.Read More
