We’re almost three months away from Labor Day, which means it’s time to pull out your favorite white linen pants and milk glass — gotta enjoy it while you can! We’re a little partial to white because it is one of the finishes in our beautiful Porcelain RLM collection. Our collection of white accents isn’t just limited to lighting. Here’s a sampling of some of our finest white home decor accessories!Read More
Charles Baxter wittily noted, “Forget art. Put your trust in ice cream.” We couldn’t agree more! There’s little more refreshing and comforting than a chilly bowl of ice cream on a warm spring afternoon. With the summer heat wave on the cusp (well, at least for us Floridians!) the very thought of ice cream makes our mouths water. So, why not decorate with fresh home decor that remind us of one of our favorite desserts?Read More
The old saying that the kitchen is the heart of the home was surely coined in Jana’s house. Our Featured Customer built her home on a cattle ranch and hay farm in Eastern Oregon 22 years ago. At the time, she had three children and her kitchen seemed huge.
“Then our family grew to seven children, four of which are married now, and we will soon have eight grandchildren,” Jana says. “We outgrew the kitchen years ago, but it took us awhile to decide to remodel.” The family spends many hours every day in the kitchen. Winters are long in Oregon and there is a cozy fireplace at one end of the room. And summers are busy with haying seven days a week.Read More
If you’re like most people, your kitchen probably got a real workout in the last few weeks with holiday parties, family dinners, and enough baking to make Mrs. Claus proud. This kitchen looks like it would be the perfect place for whipping up some pre-New Year’s Eve goodies! Loads of vintage touches abound here with the classic subway tile, the retro containers behind the glass front cabinets, and the creamy green bowls that are just crying out for a matching jadite Ivanhoe® Aero Shallow Bowl Pendant!Read More
Sam Levenson, an American humorist, writer, teacher, and journalist had this to say about time — “Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.” We think Sam must have written that on a Monday morning, not a Friday afternoon at 3:00pm when he’d been slaving in the cubicle all week! However, even Sam might be tempted to slow down and take a look at time passing on these beautiful vintage clocks. These are part of our rapidly expanding line of Industrial Decor here at Barn Light Electric in a collection we call Vintage Timekeeping. Taking inspiration from a variety of antique clocks, the Vintage Timekeeping line has a range of styles including classic, vintage, and retro in beautiful shades of cream, black, and red. You’ll also find some classic wooden clocks!
The clocks in this photo are from our Retro Collection and were photographed recently at Rocket City Retro, a family-owned and operated business that serves the Cocoa, Florida area with expert interior designing and a line of high-quality furniture. The clock at the top left is our Bullit Mantel Clock which features a quirky design that would appeal to your college student or be a great desk accessory at work. Available in Gloss Red or Gloss Black, the clock features bold, arabic numerals and a continuous digital alarm sound.
The top right clock above is the Bubble Alarm Clock which comes in Gloss Cream, Gloss Red, or Gloss Black. The bold hands and arabic numbers against the printed white paper dial make for easy reading within the acrylic case and domed acrylic lens. And the bold red clock on the bottom shelf is The Metro Clock which also comes in a sleek Gloss Black. This retro wall clock has an acrylic case that gives it’s vintage design a fun, modern twist and would look great in the kitchen or study. The dial has an aged appearance adding to its vintage charm!
