We love it when customers share photos of their lighting renovations with us, and when Becki Anderson of Liberty, Missouri, recently posted photos to our Facebook page, it was big news indeed! Becki’s home was featured on the cover of the Summer issue of VintageKC magazine! The feature showcased the six-month remodeling that Becki and husband Steve tackled when they bought the 115-year-old home.Read More
If you were building a brand new home, what would be on your list of must-haves? A wine cellar? A master-suite spa? Mine would have to include a screened-in porch although the wine cellar would definitely make the list too!
Nothing extends your living space and offers a connection with the great outdoors quite like a porch. When Michelle built her new home on the Blue Hill Peninsula in Maine, she included a porch that features a day bed for quiet afternoons of reading. She chose a barn wall sconce to provide a focused touch of light over the cozy spot.Read More
Katrin, of Berkeley, California, had been playing with the thought of a barn light above her aluminum, frosted glass garage door for quite awhile.
“I wanted something modern, but not too modern,” Katrin explains. “I have always loved the concept of mixing very cool and modern items with something more traditional.

Barn doors have been popping up in places other than the big building on the back 40 for some time now. Barn doors are rustic yet with an industrial edge, and this custom-made, knotty pine door features a clear stain that lets the grain, knots, and character of the wood show through beautifully. Adding to the barn flavor is the Wall Sconce just inside the next room.
This dandy little fixture looks very much like our Austin Wall Sconce, a compact shade that is perfect for hallways, entryways, or tight spaces like powder rooms or a child’s reading nook. The galvanized finish adds a nice metallic touch to the brightness of the room and pulls the barn feel through the door. Wall-hugging sconces are a great choice to highlight artwork such as this without overpowering the space.Read More

From traditional mantels, stair railings, and bookshelves to free hanging stockings–there’s something promising about these little places just waiting to be stuffed with knick knacks and candy. For today’s Style Me Sunday, we’re creating a mantel piece that will rival your Christmas tree for center of attention.
Our cozy mantel was inspired by this Faux Fireplace re-do from the The Rooster and The Hen blog. Flocked Fraser Fir Garland with a light misting of white snow looks adorable draped across the corners.Read More
