From the first time I laid eyes on our house, I was pretty smitten. It was different than any home we’ve ever lived in, and I’ve just always loved a classic black and white colonial (thanks in large part to Father of the Bride, which I’ve mentioned before). So, there’s not a lot of updates we’re making to the exterior. I do think, however, that updating your outdoor lighting is like an instant face lift, if you have an older home.
I felt like the original fixture was a little small for the porch. I wanted something with more bulk that still kept in the classic style of the exterior. Del Mar Fans & Lighting approached me about working together on a project around our house, and it took me all of about two minutes to find this Hinkley outdoor black ceiling light:
It’s the Sullivan lantern by Hinkley Lighting, and I like that it’s a fresh version of a traditional style.
I actually love this whole collection and hope to eventually add the coordinating Sullivan sconces by Hinkley at Del Mar once we start working on the back of the house.
Good news for any of you who might be in the market for a similar light. Del Mar is giving away the same exact pendant on their Facebook page, starting tomorrow (Mar. 4th). Be sure to “like them” and sign up to participate in the giveaway.
