The right ambiance can make or break a bubble bath experience. Confession time: How many candles do you surround your tub with hoping their warm glow will distract you from your chunky, dated bathroom accents and the fact that your tub might be a little too small for full reclining? Are you washing between your toes with dawn soap? What is your bathroom decor saying about you?
If you want your bathroom to say, “I love stylish, hand-picked home decor accents and the occasional evening of pampering” — this bathroom is for you! It’s easy to get cozy when you have the essentials like lavish porcelain tubs, bubbly handmade soaps, and rustic mood lighting! Here are our picks for a Shabby Chic Spa Bathroom.Read More
2013 is all about dazzling color palettes. Color blocking highlights the vibrancy in individual colors, and in light of our recent LED launch, we’ve been thinking a lot about industrial pendants that will perfectly illuminate these vibrant, modern spaces.Read More
Where do you hang your stockings? We’ve seen quite the gamut of locations. From traditional mantels, stair railings, and bookshelves to free hanging stockings–there’s something promising about these little places just waiting to be stuffed with knick knacks and candy. For today’s Style Me Sunday, we’re creating a mantel piece that will rival your Christmas tree for center of attention.
Our cozy mantel was inspired by this Faux Fireplace re-do from the The Rooster and The Hen blog. Flocked Fraser Fir Garland with a light misting of white snow looks adorable draped across the corners. Vintage inspired wall sconces like the Chesapeake Bay Mirrored Wall Sconce and the Norwalk Wall Sconce both feature Nostalgic Edison style bulbs that give off a warm, almost candle-like glow.
Michelle Fritz’s Burlap Stockings are so shabby chic and look lovely besides other vintage accessories like the Bullit Mantel Alarm Clock. We love her idea of displaying fresh greenery in the stockings before Santa arrives to fill them with goodies!
Industrial home goods like the Tapering Zinc Containers add a little edge while being practical for storing fireplace accessories. The Industrial Metal Adjustable Stool is great for extra seating, but can also be used as a mantel-side table to hold your charming Enamelware Cups.
Speaking of stockings, our 2012 Holiday Sale is still going strong for another 12 days! If you haven’t taken advantage of our free shipping, now’s the time. As an additional bonus, we’re giving you 10% off all American made Porcelain Enamel lighting fixtures. Just enter the code STOCKING12 to redeem the discount!

If you’re one of many that has been browsing and perusing the Barn Light Electric website for quite some time now, surely you’ve noticed quite a few changes. From what started off as a little “Mom and Pop shop” type of website, we’ve made our pages more user friendly and added on so many different options. Surely, you’ve noticed the new layout and design, and perhaps even the icons on each product listing. Not sure what they mean? Hover over each image for an explanation!
Not only are we adding on new features, we’ve also been expanding our product lines. So long are the days of just American made light fixtures. The Industrial Home Utility section is one of our newest and quickest expanding pages. From wire baskets to industrial stools, these products were selected with our customers in mind. Recently, we’ve added the Enamelware Cup, which is manufactured in the same manner that our Porcelain Barn Lights are made: right here in America.
So what is so great about enamelware cups? More like — what isn’t so great about them! Hand spun by our skilled craftsman here on Florida’s Space Coast, these cups are available in the same brilliant finishes as our light fixtures. Refreshing jadite and yellow lend a retro feel, whereas a solitude black or white contributes to a formal, muted pallet. Got kids who need a sturdy bathroom cup? These cups are a long lasting investment. Need a spot for your makeup by the door for a quick fix? Standard plastic cups are going to fade and crack with the typical wear and tear, but our enamelware cups aren’t even familiar with the phrase “wear and tear.” Don’t believe it? Check out how our porcelain barn lights are actually made, and you will be convinced of the high quality!Read More
