Warehouse Shade, Wire Pendant for Our 3rd Place B.L.O.G. Winner!
This summer’s annual B.L.O.G. contest — that’s Barn Light Online Giveaway — came at a perfect time for Shannan in Goshen, Indiana. A blogger who muses about house and home on her Flower Patch Farmgirl blog, Shannan and her husband Cory, along with kids Calvin, Ruby and Silas, were in the middle of building a new home so the contest was a great way to score some lighting for their new digs.
“The timing was perfect,” Shannan says. “We were making our lighting selections and I have drooled over Barn Light Electric’s fixtures for so long, I knew I had to enter. Substantial and unique lighting has always been my favorite way to add character and drama to a space.” Shannan’s new home is very clean with a mostly white interior. She favors vintage and industrial finds and has used liberal pops of color throughout. For her winnings, Shannan chose our Flush Mount Warehouse Shade in a Galvanized finish and a Wire Cage Pendant in Satin Nickel.
“We spent hours looking at the BLE website trying to maximize our winnings,” Shannan says. “It was difficult because there was so much we loved!” They hung the Flush Mount Warehouse Shade in the living room where Shannan says it fits the space very well.
“It’s substantial and I love the industrial edge to it. We decided to order the cage in black for some added contrast and I’m so happy with our decision,” she says. The Wire Cage Pendant hangs in the landing on the stairs and is one of the first spaces you see when you enter the home.
“I took advantage of the ceiling height and went with a pendant,” Shannan explains. “Another selling point to this fixture is that the mounting hardware allows for some flexibility in hanging. We were able to hang it in the landing even though the ceiling there is slanted.” So which one of her new light does she like best?
“I’m particularly smitten with the galvanized Warehouse Shade paired with the black cage,” she says. “But I love the industrial vibe of both lights!”
