We were inspired by the folks at Northworks Architects and Planners when we discovered their beautifully refashioned Michigan barn home. While their innovative redesign has function and style in mind, it is evident that they cared about the history and integrity of this barn structure. With our roots sinking deeply into barn and farmhouse aesthetics, this space resonates with us. This Style Me Sunday we’re combining some of our favorite rugged vintage lighting and industrial farmhouse accents that will give your home, apartment, or loft a warm and historic barn ambiance.Read More
Gina and her growing family have been living in their Fort Collins, Colorado, home for seven years. Built in 1907, the 1300-square-foot home was beginning to feel cramped so Gina decided to reinvent her historic home to give it a more modern feel while still retaining its vintage charm.
“We decided to add a second story for kids’ rooms and a bathroom, and gut the entire first floor so we could have more living space,” Gina says. “We wanted more open space instead of the many small rooms of our modest Victorian.” With the help of the design/build team from High Craft Builders, the couple added three bedrooms and a bath, changed the first floor bath to a powder room, and redid the kitchen, family room, and dining room. For the kids’ bath upstairs, Gina wanted something retro yet clean and modern looking.Read More

People remodel for many different reasons. Perhaps the colors are outdated. Or maybe it’s time to try some new industrial decor in the living room. For Keith and Cathy of Houston, Texas, their daughter’s wedding meant a house full of family and friends, and one of the targets of their remodeling plan was the lighting over the kitchen bar.
“We were going for an Art Deco industrial/warehouse look throughout the second floor living area,” Cathy says. “Keith is an electrical engineer and we’ve always liked the vintage industrial fixtures such as Crouse-Hinds and Fostoria.” The couple chose two 12″ Sinclair Stem & Loop Pendants in a Yellow porcelain enamel finish. The stem & loop pendant features a cord-and-stem mount combination that includes cording at the top and bottom of the stem. Keith and Cathy chose a black cotton twist cord and a 36″ Nickel stem and canopy finish along with a Nickel knob switch.Read More
