Summer Craft Lighting

It's no surprise that I am a huge outdoor lighting fan of all types! So, I thought I would share this easy, do it yourself outdoor lighting project for the summer. These "canterns" would be a great project for the kids (with adult supervision) and could be created in a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on the cans used. For detailed instructions, see HGTV's blog spot. Have fun!

Highlands, North Carolina

Check out our photos from The Highlands in North Carolina. We have a crew up there today working hard to make our client's outdoor lighting almost as beautiful as the scenery itself. If you ever get up there, check out the Old Edwards Inn (the last phto from the top.) We did their outdoor lighting!

I'm designing an outdoor lighting project in Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina today.  The scenery is gorgeous here!  Palmetto Bluff is about 18 miles southeast of Hilton Head but without all the hustle and bustle.  It is best known for its nature preserves, fishing and hunting as well amazing land and water trails.  The Inn at Palmetto Bluff was voted the #1 best hotel in the United States by US News and World Report in February 2012. I love my job!

Today I had the pleasure of meeting with Polly McLeod Mattox, author of the visually stunning book, Private Gardens of Georgia.  I was able to tour her own private garden as I finalized plans to bring illumination and ambiance to her spectacular outdoor living space.  I am thrilled to be working on one of Ryan Gainey's gardens.  I didn't forget to bring my copy and got it signed! Wahoo!
