We think it’s a win-win to live where we do and have Coastal Lighting Gallery (CLG) in our arsenal of shops to frequent, as light is not only key to cultivating atmosphere, it is a crucial element of good design. Their staff and store are dedicated to making the process simple, helping to elevate the aesthetics of your home by illuminating the livability and function. Opt for lighting by theme–choose your favorite fixture as centerpiece– with a variety of possible pieces to complement, or simply pick what you love! The personnel here are trained to advise on weather-appropriate fixtures and finishes for the coastal environment. Resilience is key when dealing with a humid climate and salt exposure.
The man who brought this business to light, owner Leonard Safrit, is himself a beacon to both those around him and our community at large. He has dedicated his services, his boundless energy and altruistic spirit, as well as guidance and funding to our local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Under parent company East Hardwood Co., he has donated more than $100,000 in materials since the beginning of 2019 alone to this incredible non-profit. Mr. Safrit provides the glow of hope and rebuilding for so many, and adds fuel to the fire that blazes here on the Crystal Coast—the shared sentiment of neighbors helping neighbors.
BONUS: Illuminate the space you’re in – Transform your home with these simple steps suggested by the team at Coastal Lighting Gallery:
Whether your work from home situation is temporary or permanent, lighting matters in an office space. Placing a pendant over your workspace will provide ample overhead light, while a desk lamp delivers task and accent lighting, and gives you the flexibility to move the light whenever you want. No matter your workspace, ample light is key!
Steps, paths and driveways should be well-lit to make sure guests are able to move about easily and safely after dark. You can install path lights, post lanterns or attach lights to the side of the house. Low-level path lights, which spread circular patterns of light, will brighten your walkway, while highlighting nearby flower beds, shrubs and landscaping.
Children’s rooms will benefit from the use of track lights, which can be swiveled, rotated, and aimed in any direction to shed light on play areas, hobbies or homework. As the child grows older, the fixtures can be moved and redirected however they please. A lighting solution that evolves and adjusts over time is important when making decisions for kids’ rooms.
