Lights - Looking for those same light fixtures between the joists, what are they?

rogue decor co.
it appears to be an open ceiling just leaving the joists exposed. those are just regular 6" can lights that can be found at any big box store. they install between the joists and can slide on the brackets. it appears they just painted the whole ceiling black including the bracket and housing (be sure to tape off the socket). they then installed a trim ring kit (which comes in various options and colors). i have attached a picture of what it might look like before paint. hope this helps.

How did you do the brick? - Could you please tell me the process of how you got the brick walls and column bases. They look great! Thanks

We ordered the brick from a place called www.culturedstone.com. It was 1/4" the width of a brick and went on like tile. It was installed by a subcontractor.

Heidi, love your basement. I think I am using all your ideas for our own. We have a low budget- I am sure the built in's are the priciest area? Did you have to get HVAC or use upstairs? Our ceilings are super low in some areas and not too bad in others- was yours low?

We used all existing HVAC, but had to plumb for the small bath. Yes, our ceilings were low and we could not come to a consensus regarding a dropped ceiling or dry wall. Because our pipes tended to drip in humid conditions, we went with a painted ceiling. We are so happy with the basement. The custom cabinetry was definitely priciest, but I imagine you could go with IKEA and mould them to make them look custom.
