NKBA Bathroom finalist

Photo from HGTV Pro

I saw this bathroom in the Residential Lighting Magazine this morning and I loved how Melissa Morgan Sutherland, who designed this bathroom, used lights I have all ready featured on the blog.
The Pendant in the center of the bathroom is from Justice Design, and the vertical lights running down the sides of the mirror are from George Kovacs.
This stunning bathroom I can see working in so many of the houses around this area where Arts and Crafts style is so prevalent. It could also work in many transitional homes or you can changed the finish to satin nickle or chrome and have a more modern feel.
I also LOVE that they used all halogen lights here, in the cans and in the vanity lighting. I have said many times that I think Halogen is needed in bathrooms, especially when you are going to be applying makeup and shaving. The halogen light is a brighter and more intense light that mimics sunlight, it is a much truer color than incandescent, LED or Fluorescent light. So in other words when you put your makeup on inside under halogen lights you will look the same color outside.

Eurofase Mica Collection

I don't know if these pictures do these crystal beauties much justice but this is Eurofase new collection, Mica. Can you see the cascading crystals inside the frames of all of these lights? I am so in love!!!!!

LED Retrofit

Nora LED Retrofit Diamond Series

I received a display a few weeks ago with one of these LED recessed can retrofits from Nora Lighting. It is a great product, It is easily converted into an existing 4", 5" and 6" recessed can of there are new construction models available.

You save up to 75% energy, and it can dim better than any LED I've seen all the way down to 5%.

The retrofit is available in 2700K(warm white), 3500K(cool white), and 4000K(day light) and in either a baffle or a reflector trims(both shown above are reflector trims), and they are available in 7 different finishes.

You will have to see to believe how great the light output is on the LED and how well it dims.

Oh and it comes with a 7-year limited warranty!
