Behind-The-Scenes at the Casa Feliz Winter Park Shoot
One of the perks of working in the interior design industry is experiencing a plethora of beautiful spaces. I get really excited when our blogger, Betty, sends a customer photo my way. Nothing like seeing your work in someone’s home. When I was given the opportunity to join our design team on a photo-trip to a beautiful ’30s-era Spanish villa located in the heart of central Florida, I was ecstatic. What we love and do at Barn Light Electric is rooted in historic spaces and restored lighting, so to see our porcelain barn lights hanging in period-appropriate surroundings is the cherry on top.
Before our trip, Cracker applied his super-sonic spinning skills to perfecting our hand-spun steel shades. If you are interested in seeing how the lights are made, this mini-documentary is for you.
When we arrived on location, we were stunned by the structure’s elegance. The Casa Feliz is a restored Spanish Farmhouse that holds many of the original influences and design artifacts thanks to meticulous preservation. Beautiful brick and terracotta roofing created a warm first impression inspiring us to honor its welcoming opulence.
Our new friends from Wish Vintage Rentals helped us out with a rustic dining set that complemented the dining hall. Lauren channeled her inner Martha with a fresh and vibrant tablescape.
We were experiencing a marriage of cultures with this set. From the Spanish influenced interiors to the American farm-style lighting, the richness of the materials really worked well together. Our barn chandelier was right at home in the middle of it.
The house was a maze of rooms to explore. Each more exciting than the next. We’d certainly recommend visiting Casa Feliz whenever they have a public event as it is like stepping into a different decade.
