White Barn Lighting That’s Still Fashionable Long After Labor Day
The beginnings of Labor Day weren’t always so enticing. Following huge labor strikes, former president Grover Cleveland and Congress passed the national holiday as a semi-appeasement for the Central Labor Union in New York. We’ll spare you the gritty, historical details and bring you back to our modern day take on the holiday – Today, Labor Day is a time that commonly represents the end of our long summer days. It’s a day celebrated with parades, parties and last minute vacations. It also marks the beginning of college and NFL football season, as well as the last day where it is traditionally fashionable to wear white.
Even if you can’t bring out the white pants or skirts again until Easter, there isn’t reason to stop using white within your home. Crisp white rooms are strongly tied to the rustic farmhouse trend, ultimately giving the space that open, airy and welcoming feeling year round. Whether it’s a whitewashed plank floor or a beautiful set of French doors, even the slightest touch of white can have a big impact on your home.
If painting your floor seems a bit messy, have you considered adding in a couple white barn lamps? Farm style lighting traditionally comes in lighter finishes like white and galvanized metal. These finishes are easy to clean and have the ability to combine with any other color. Small industrial pendant lights like our Fargo Pendant look fantastic when grouped together over a kitchen island. Then there are wall lamps like the Revival Sconce which can be perfect for a bathroom vanity or used as an exterior barn light.
