This week’s Style Me Sunday ushers in a little summer warmth to ease your chilly winter blues. And there’s no better light than our new Sydney shades to do this! Its nautical style is reminiscent of our favorite oceanic holidays—and is the perfect fixture for this eclectic space.
Whether located in your back porch or living room, outdoor furniture like this Wicker Lane White Chair adds lots of texture and detail. Fresh foliage is another element that brings the outdoors in and enlivens your senses.
Crisp and clean cobalt blue-and-white patterns often make cameo appearances in nautical spaces, but we’re adding a little twist with this Arbre Chinois fabric. We love the way this fabric coordinates with the chinoiserie planter from the Inspiration Image without clashing with the overall look.
Looking for a fun way to display your favorite findings? Try hanging them as wall ornamentation! We love this Octopus Print from Etsian littlebluebirdstudios. And don’t forget wall sconces — Captain Ahab would be envious of this Admidships Bulkhead Wall Mount Light Fixture’s patina finish!
Fill your Canvas Baskets with Handles with shells, sea-glass, or other collectibles for a great conversational piece!
For nearly a century, sailors and fisherman have become accustomed to the warm glow of light that has come from classic bulkhead fixtures on ships and harbor docks. Until now there has not been an alternative to these vintage styles, but rather redesigns of the same lights. Amazingly this revered design has not seen any significant changes, but recognizing the need for something more modern, our latest line of nautical lights provide an interesting solution to this maritime dilemma. The reasoning behind this is to offer a choice to our customers who may require an updated dock or deck light to match the overall appearance of their homes and docks.
One such light that steps away from traditional appearances is the Mosquito Lagoon Light, which uses a combination of classic and modern porthole designs to produce a clean updated nautical light. Identified by the round base and crossing center supports, the Mosquito Lagoon creates a visibly stunning low profile appearance that allows plenty of light to project outward. Another nautical light that shares these same attributes is the Indian River Marine Light, which is identified by the large circular opal glass and thin crossing accent pieces. This universal design allows for this light to be mounted as a flush mount ceiling light or even a slim wall sconce.
Breaking new ground in the area of marine lighting is the introduction of a square shapes as opposed to the traditional circular dock and deck lights that has dominated this particular market. Strides to create a nautical light that breaks with tradition to create wide ranging appeal has led to the conception of a more square shaped light fixture, the Intracoastal Marine Light. Besides having a low profile and recognizable shape, the Intracoastal light comes with an option between two finishes and features a frosted grid glass diffuser that protects 4 xenon bulbs from the elements. Following this unique updated styling with a modified exterior is the Captiva Pass Marine Light. The Captivaâ€™s aluminum body has a distinct downward facing enclosure, which allows a directional light to be cast toward the ground while maintaining its wall-mounted position. The positioning of the linear prismatic lens makes this fixture ideal for lighting paths or steps. Regardless of which modern style, each lights goal is consistent, providing a contemporary answer to the rustic appearances of the past.Read More
