Houzz Pro Spotlight: How to Choose the Best Outdoor Lighting for Your Home

Who: Andrew Medway of Lanternland
Where: Mesa, Arizona
In his own words: “No matter how beautiful the design, if the size is wrong, the lantern will not look good.”

For Andrew Medway, the right lighting is essential. It’s also something that he frequently finds is done wrong, and usually the culprit is the size of the light fixture. “It’s critical not only to match the style but also the scale of the project. Large homes require large lighting fixtures,” he says. 

Medway co-owns Lanternland in Mesa, which produces handmade copper and brass light fixtures and provides custom lighting, primarily for outdoor spaces. The first step of designing a lighting plan, according to Medway and his colleague Jenifer Tague, is to think about the project as a whole and consider both space and proportions.

Our new custom lantern designs for outdoor living are all handmade of solid brass by talented artisans in our USA Factory. Because we knew that these would be installed in a Mediterranean Style property near the ocean we chose to make them out of brass, the best metal to use for beach and tropical locations. Our customer selected clear seedy glass to complement both the lantern design and the extra dark brass finish.

Custom Outdoor Lighting for Beach House

This recent outdoor lighting installation features a beautiful example of a solid copper custom outdoor hanging lantern made by Lanternland for the exterior front entry of this stunning beach house in Corona Del Mar, California. We worked with the homeowner and designer to create the ideal lighting solution for this home. The end result combines a burnished Dark Copper finish with Clear Glass and a unique design that compliments the entryway perfectly. 






PRO TIP: Because copper and brass lighting will never rust or corrode, copper and brass are ideal for use in an ocean, beachfront, lakefront or waterfront locations. 


Additional photos show our Coronado Mission Outdoor Lantern on the Front Exterior, Back Patio and Side Entrances. All of these were customized to meet the requirements of our customers project. The lighting element has been moved to the roof to meet local Dark Sky regulations and the back-plates were elongated to accommodate the placement of the J-Boxes. These Coronado Mission Style Lanterns also have hinged doors and an open bottom too allow easy acess for cleaning and changing the bulbs. Shown in here in our Dark Copper finish with Seeded Glass.








Questions? Our design team is always happy to help! Email us anytime at info@lanternland.com or call us toll free at (855) 454-5200. We look forward to working with you to create the perfect outdoor lighting solution for your beach house, lake home, cabin or your everyday home.
