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
Decisions, decisions. When you build a new home, the questions come at you in a barrage that would make General Patton cringe. You discover that the devil is truly in the details, and you’re faced not only with figuring out what you like and what looks great but what is functional, environmentally sound, and budget friendly too.

In the seaside town of Sag Harbor, decorator Natasha Esch and her husband, Matthew Coffin, have painstakingly restored and renovated an historic 19th-century storefront building. Using a mix of rustic wood and industrial metal decor, the pair created a stunning environment for Esch’s predilection toward European midcentury design. In this photo, a variety of midcentury chairs dot the open floor plan, and in the soaring space above, rustic posts and beams recycled from an old barn add warmth along with the refinished oak flooring. Hanging from those beams and shooting light directly below are deep bowl pendants much like our new Wilcox Studio Light.
