Lighting up the Lighthouse

A battle lantern with sliding brass covers illuminates the lighthouse tower, and on the side of the mahogany bar, miniature lighthouses beam light through petite Fresnel lenses.

Make It Home:
• Search salvage centers for trim and fixtures that recall the new home’s original use. Antique brass lanterns and other fixtures combine with unique moldings to give the lighthouse a nautical look.
• Choose your architect wisely; the former Coast Guard engineering officer who was hired to adapt the lighthouse was intimately familiar with the design and materials of nautical structures.
