When we spotted the utilitarian interiors of the Barista Parlour on Zarna’s Runway, we got the impression that someone on their interior design team had a little crush on vintage-inspired pendant lighting. With its high, vaulted ceilings, exposed wiring, and masculine wood accents, this coffee shop plays up the rustic side of commercial design. You can get this look by incorporating some of these antiquated details.
Breathe new life into old nautical and state flags by displaying them as wall ornamentations. This nostalgic State of Oregon Flag would look great on display and would be a great way to infuse color into your space!
Rooms with high ceilings are ideal for creative lighting displays. In this shop, we love that they combined bare bulb pendants with old warehouse shades to reflect different volumes of light. Barn Light Electric manufactures many similar hanging pendants like the Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief Warehouse Porcelain Pendant, the Ivanhoe™ Conoco Porcelain Pendant, and the Indy Porcelain Socket Pendant. Juxtapose this industrial lighting with something more refined like the Central Park Swing Arm Sconce.
The industrial-style interiors are making the transition from winter trend to spring must-have — so start your space today!

In yesterday’s blog post we visited a brand new, green-built home in northern New York designed by a couple who were unhappy with renting but didn’t have the finances to buy an expensive, energy-efficient home built to their standards. We took a tour of Jeff and Kalie’s new kitchen where five cord-hung porcelain enamel lights take center stage over the island and countertops. Today, we venture out onto the porch where two more RLM warehouse shades add a bright touch to the front of the home.Read More

Great lighting isn’t just for the main areas in your home. With affordable options like a vintage inspired warehouse shade, parents can create a warm and relaxing environment in their child’s playroom. In the photo above, a black warehouse pendant light resembling the Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief Warehouse Pendant, adds charm and a historic twist to the classical styled room. Vintage style toys like the Brio wooden train set and traditional layered draperies add a bit of inspirational whimsy to this playroom. The photo is from an article on TraditionalHome.com, which includes an insightful quote from Atlanta interior designer Barbara Westbrook:
“While furnishings that stand up to the rumble-tumble of kidsâ€™ activities are a given, it is equally important to create calming and comforting surroundings. A home should be a retreat from our very, very busy lives…A place where a family can relax together, hang out, and play.â€
The Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief Warehouse Pendant starts at $169 and is available in a 16″ shade size. Several of the porcelain enamel finishes would have coordinated well with the space, but for a similar look, simply choose Black. Hanging options for the Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief include a standard cotton twist cord or a stem mount for outdoor patio use. To complete the antique look of the porcelain enamel Sky Chief, A Nostalgic Edison Style Light Bulb can be added.
Interior designer Barbara Westbrook incorporated kid-scaled furniture and educational toys such as the world map and the planet mobile into this section of the Atlanta townhouse. Westbrook was one of three interior designers in the Atlanta area who joined with award-winning builder Pam Sessions of Hedgewood Properties and Traditional Home Magazine to build and decorate three adjacent townhouses within the community.
