What did we do before Pinterest? How did we ever find the perfect Super Bowl snacks, the best wedding reception venue, or a suitable wall sconce for the bathroom? Luckily, we live in an age where an endless parade of photos is at our fingertips for inspiration!
For Josh and his fiancé Marie, Pinterest was their go-to source as they took on the complete remodel of the guest bathroom in their Sparks, Nevada home.
“We decided to go with a modern rustic design,” Josh says. “We found a pin on Pinterest and followed it to Barn Light Electric and started browsing the selection there.” They hit upon the Barn Wall Sconce collection as they... Read More
In last Friday’s post, we introduced you to John Colaneri, who just wrapped up his second season of Cousins Undercover on HGTV along with his cousin Anthony Carrino. John and his wife recently purchased a piece of land in northern New Jersey where John has put his years of construction expertise to work on his first ground-up building project. The couple are putting down roots in their new home that mixes old elements with new to create a contemporary design with a sense of history and timeless style.

That is exactly what Abbey, of Columbus, Ohio, said when she unpacked the Barn Light Electric box that contained the new rustic wall sconce for her son’s bathroom.
“It was stunning and so much more than I ever expected,” Abbey says. “I was blown away.” Abbey, who writes the blog The Cards We Drew, was working on a remodel of her son’s bathroom and bedroom.

When you’re trying to envision how new lights will look in your home, it helps to look at other people’s spaces. Today’s Featured Customer visited a friend who purchased lights from Barn Light Electric and loved how they looked.
“My friend Arianna renovated the first floor of her beach house a few years ago,” says Tiffany. “She bought all of her fixtures from Barn Light Electric and I thought her place was gorgeous!” When Tiffany started renovating an existing bathroom in her own home in Tacoma, Washington, that dated to 1960, she borrowed space from a bedroom closet to turn one bathroom into two.

In a previous post, we visited a secluded Vermont cabin tucked away on a winding path where architect Joan Heaton created a cozy yet light-filled cabin for her clients. Even with high ceilings and plenty of windows, Heaton knew lighting the 600-square-foot cabin was critical especially in winter. She chose the 12″ Original™ Warehouse Pendant in a Galvanized finish for the living area which features warm pickled pine paneling and a natural pine ceiling.
“The cabin is very open; you can see from one room to the next so it was important to me that the lighting be consistent,” she says. “I often choose lights that are in a family — the same style in... Read More
