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.


Rave Reviews for Coastal Armour by Quoizel

At this year’s January 2014 Market, rave reviews were given to the newly introduced Stonington Collection, Coastal Armour by Quoizel.   With the introduction of Coastal Armour, Quoizel’s renowned outdoor lighting has gotten even better! Coastal Armour promises to be significantly more durable, less prone to fading and features finer details.

With a core-strengthening ingredient of natural quarry stone crushed to a fine powder and then mixed with a powerful blend of latex and adhesives, Coastal Armour by Quoizel creates the next generation of products by using a material of extraordinary strength, durability and beauty.  This extraordinary new weather-resistant outdoor material has been tested to withstand extreme heat and brutal cold; it is non-corrosive (acid and alkali-resistant) and UV resistant.  They are so confident that Coastal Armour by Quoizel will sustain all types of weather, that they are offering a 5-year warranty on it.


Ice Ice Baby!

You might remember Vanilla Ice as the rapper, but nowadays, Vanilla Ice aka Rob VanWinkle has traded in his microphone for a hammer!  You can find him on the DIY Network flipping houses in the most desirable areas of Florida.

His show, The Vanilla Ice Project, most recently converted a Palm Beach disaster into a deluxe oasis.  The 6,300 square foot house once an eyesore was transformed into a chic, opulent mansion!

Dubbed the “Maroon Monster” it was crucial to give the home some curb appeal by transforming the front of the house.  A fresh coat of paint, a new front door, and replacing the old minuscule light fixture with Quoizel’s Fort Quinn made all the difference.
