Gooseneck Lighting Styling with Brittany Hislop
When Brittany Hislop of Vintage Society Co. designed her new home in a small Alberta, Canada town, she spent most of her creative energies on the interior spaces. After settling in for a few years, she turned her eye to the outside of her home.
When we first built, I sacrificed exterior design to get more of the interior elements that I wanted,” Brittany says. “But after living in our home for five years, I was ready for some upgrades, and changing out the outdoor lighting was a big one!”
As an obvious devotee of all things vintage, Brittany loves a classic and timeless style when it comes to lighting. She turned to Barn Light‘s collection of Gooseneck Lights when considering fixtures for the two garage doors and eight exterior man doors of her home.
I knew finding the proper size and proportion for the different areas was important as not every space requires the same size fixture,” she explains. “I love the options that Barn Light Australia offers to really customize your light fixtures.
Looking to recreate this look without breaking the bank? Our Tiberius Flat Powdercoat provides an aged, weathered brass looking finish. As always, our hardware, goosenecks, cast guards are powder-coated to match.
While this article refers to a 45cm (18″) Originals, we spin both 40cm & 50cm Original Warehouse Shades.
When I choose lighting for design clients, I always say that size and proportion are more “important than style,” she explains. “Unlike the garage doors that required a larger light, I wanted something smaller and more proportional for the man doors.”
Turning her attention to her front door, Brittany knew The Original™ would look terrific here as well, but she chose different customizing options to suit the space. The gooseneck light flanking the front door boasts a 16″ shade, a porcelain enamel Black finish, and a G11 gooseneck arm. This fixture also has the same guard-and-glass design and options as the garage lights.
