Project Overview

This home in Newport, RI, was one of the first houses built in the neighborhood and was in major need of an update. Griff Electric rewired the entire home, added light fixtures, and increased the service. We worked with Libby Kirwin’s team to layout the kitchen and bathrooms had a combination of recessed and decorative lighting. We installed pendant lights in the main bathrooms rather than sconces. The full-length mirrors above the vanities reflect the light from the fixtures for a warm glow. The stairway also got some special treatment: it’s tall and narrow so we chose a fixture that cast pretty shadows. It turned the walls of the stairway into a work of art. A statement light fixture like that can inspire the design of the rest of the space.
