Designers love to push the envelope sometimes and take risks with interior decorating. For this kitchen renovation in Decatur, Georgia, the client couldn’t be happier with the creative work of Julie Holloway and Anisa Darnell of Milk and Honey Home. In a bold move, the duo chose some classic angle shades for over the kitchen sink.
“We know they are typically used for outdoor sign lighting, but we just love the old vintage feel they give,” explains Anisa. “We needed a sconce that would have a long enough arm to stick out past the shelf over the window and reflect back onto the collection of dishes. And the angle shade did just that! It was a risk worth taking!” Lending the perfect angle of light are three 8″ Frontier Angle Shades in a White finish with a G8 gooseneck arm in a contrasting Black finish.Read More

“One of them stood on the site and said, ‘I’ve been driving by this field for 20 years and always wanted to build a house right here,’” Steve relates.

In the nine months since the disaster, residents have been slowly picking up the pieces.

“Everything had to go after the storm because the water went throughout the entire downstairs ruining everything in its path,” Erica explains. “Appliances, carpets, walls, sheet rock, electronics, furniture, and mattresses all had to go.” Erica and her husband Justin, co-owners of The Whiskey Brooklyn, decided to change the style of their decor with the clean slate they now had.Read More
It’s finally Friday and we’re ready to celebrate! For a change of pace, let’s head back to the Roaring 20s, an era when the economy was thriving, arts and culture were exploring new ideas, and spirits were high even if the distilled kind were outlawed under Prohibition. In a nod to this distinctive time period, the Prohibition Distillery opened its doors last April in Roscoe, New York. The owners recreated a period feel for this new venture by using used industrial lighting to transform the old Roscoe Fire Department into a modern day distillery.Read More
