Barn Light Electric Announces Collaboration, Launches New Collection
TITUSVILLE, Fla. (January 9, 2014) — Barn Light Electric has teamed with Los Angeles-based designer Veronica Valencia to create a new collection of barn pendants, wall sconces, and studio lights that offer a bohemian twist on the classic barn light.
The Veronica Valencia Collection features sleek shades with touches of rugged industrial styling and an array of fresh colors such as Blush Pink, Teal, Sherbet Orange, and Lavender. Valencia’s keen eye and intuition for color helped her select these hues which harmonize perfectly with Pantone’s Radiant Orchid, the 2014 Color of the Year.
“I love girly pastels as well as vibrant loud colors, but at the same time, I have an obsession for whites, creams, and anything simple,” Valencia explains. “At the end of the day, any space that exudes a bit of coziness and romance with a warm masculinity is my cup of tea.”
Valencia was captivated by color and design from an early age and was barely 10 years old when her parents let the budding designer pick the paint color for the exterior of their home.
“Luckily, I wasn’t into purples and I picked out a sophisticated dove grey,” Valencia says. “Our house is still that color.” The designer honed her creative style as a lead behind-the-scenes designer for ABC’s hit show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition where she designed homes and art directed for five years.
