Hermitage Keeping it Fresh

For over 60 years Hermitage has been providing the best creativity in design and service while offering excellent lighting solutions to their clients.  Always wanting to be on the cutting edge and better serve their customers, they recently updated their displays.

Kirk Marshall, the Quoizel sales representative who covers portions of the Southeast region, traded in his laptop for a hammer and nails.  He spent a few days at Hermitage helping construct new bath and outdoor displays featuring the Bradley, Stonington, Hollister, Melody and Pacifica Collections to name a few.


It’s Not Over Yet!!

Summer is not over yet, and if you’re like me, you want to enjoy every minute of it!

Whether it’s inviting guests over for a bbq or sitting on the front porch, a well-lit front entrance enables you to greet guests and enjoy the outdoors after the sun goes down. Wall lanterns on each side of the door will give your home a warm, welcoming feel and a matching post light will help to illuminate the walk while giving your home a finished look.

Investing in a quality product built for function while choosing the right outdoor light for your home’s architecture is key.  Quoizel offers such a wide variety of outdoor collections to match all different style homes.


Summer of 2014 Top Outdoor Fixtures

Quoizel’s top outdoor fixtures for this summer are…

The Newbury wall lantern creates a special ambiance, and although the black finish is still our best seller, the pewter and bronze finishes are not too far behind. The classic design and beveled glass of the Newbury gives the outside of your home a rich elegance, without making it look over-embellished. It’s a versatile look that coordinates with most any architectural style.

A design made for classic Arts & Crafts style homes, but looks great in contemporary or modern homes as well.  The Hillcrest in imperial bronze has an opaque linen glass which softens the light reducing glare and hot spots.


First Impressions…

We only get one shot at making a good first impression!  When guests pull up to your home, what’s the first thing they see?  Lighting, of course.

Part of making beautiful outdoor spaces is creating memorable entrances and exits.  You can illuminate the path to your front door plus welcome visitors in style with a decorative lantern perfectly suited to complement your home’s exterior.

Look to Quoizel’s Devon Outdoor Collection to keep your home safe while stylish.  This transitional style with clear, beveled glass blends well with almost every decor and will give your home that great first impression you are looking for.  With seven coordinating pieces in a wide variety of sizes, this collection will give you the most appropriate light so that you can enjoy your patio, garden, yard or deck after the sun goes down.


Outdoor Living at its Finest

Outdoor Living is a relatively new and rapidly growing lifestyle phenomenon. What is Outdoor Living? It no longer means just a few folding chairs, a picnic table and a hibachi.  The ideal Outdoor Living environment is creating a space with the same comforts and function as being inside the home.

HartmanBaldwin Design/Build , a fully integrated architecture, construction and interior design company, created this outdoor oasis.  Creating a space that was conducive for play and entertainment, HartmanBaldwin went to great lengths to make sure the cabana design complemented and acted as an extension to the original home’s Mediterranean style and architecture.
