Sometimes a space just cries out for the perfect light. But when interior designer Kyle Baker surveyed the space being remodeled for Velo City Cycles in Holland, Michigan, he wanted more than just one perfect light. He found Barn Light Electric’s Sky Chief Porcelain Enamel Light — and bought 39 of them.
“I didn’t want the ceiling to be heavy, and the white enamel finish looks more light and airy,” Kyle says. “The pendants match the industrial aesthetic the client was looking for and they were on sale.” Kyle selected the 16″ shade which was part of our selection of discounted porcelain enamel lighting. These fixtures come... Read More
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m ready for spring. Ready to throw open the windows and let fresh air in, ready to wear flip flops every day, and ready to clean my garage from top to bottom. Nothing makes me happier than making our garage a space that we can actually use.

Today, we take a peek around the exterior of Emily’s home in Columbus, Ohio, to see how she has used classic RLM warehouse shades to give her home distinctive character.
Emily started remodeling her home which, although fairly new, is located in an historic Victorian village near The Ohio State University.

Few renovation projects are truly complete the first time around. For Amanda, in Atlanta, Georgia, it took several years, in fact, to get her garage reveal-ready for her blog called Dixie Delights. When she purchased her home, the original garage door was solid wood and 40 years old. She backed into it a couple of years ago knocking it off the track and knocking renovation plans into overdrive.
“I’m not gonna lie and say I wasn’t excited about it,” Amanda says in her blog post. She replaced the old doors with handsome carriage style doors but the look still wasn’t quite right. Amanda decided the final touch was a portico over the door on... Read More
