Let’s face it — women spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It is what it is, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Especially when your kitchen is light-filled and a comfortable place not only to prepare meals but to relax with the kids after school or enjoy an evening cuppa tea with that last brownie you tucked away. This inviting space is full of feminine details from the floral wallpaper and plate collection to the pink framed chalkboard and baby blue fridge. Complementing all of these light touches are the cord hung pendants in a soft mint color which really pops amidst all the pink and blue.Read More
Midcentury themes are back and in a big way! All the way from popular TV shows like Mad Men, to the Craigslist and thrift store furniture finds making their way into the homes (and even the hearts) of bloggers and DIYers across the country. Think rounded corners, medium toned wood, and heck, you could even throw your hair up into a beehive-inspired style to be the talk of the town!
However, furniture and fashion aren’t the only retro glamour pieces making a comeback. Chances are that recently you’ve looked at that old, builder basic kitchen light and thought about replacing it.

The most recent lighting brought into Barn Light Electric has been our Porcelain Enamel fixtures. Seeing a need for reproduction vintage warehouse shades, Barn Light Electric set out to provide a newly manufactured RLM pendant that was created with high quality, and long lasting durability – just as the original Appleton, Crouse-Hinds, and Ivanhoe companies had done in the mid 20th century. By using steel for the interior shade structure and combining it with a glass outer coating, porcelain enamel remains one of the most durable and long lasting finishes on the market today. Used in both commercial and residential applications, porcelain enamel remains the only finish that can be restored to its original color after five, ten, or even twenty years of use. Heat, humidity, ice or even harsh chemicals are no match for the durability of these RLM shades.Read More
