To enhance the look of the luxurious materials in the master bath, Sutherland knew she needed to install great lighting. To bring out dimension in the tray ceilings, she employed LED rope lights. Halogen downlights from Juno Lighting offer ambient illumination over the sink and vanity areas, while vertical sconces by the George Kovacs division of Minka Group flank the mirror to provide even illumination for grooming tasks. What gets the most attention, however, is the giant centerpiece bowl pendant from Justice Design Group.
The difference between the “before” bathroom and the “after” was dramatic enough to win over the judges of the 2011 National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) Design Competition. Among the 500 entries considered for the Before-and-After category, Sutherland’s project was deemed the best.
The contest was sponsored by GE Monogram, HGTVpro.com, Kohler, ServiceMagic, This Old House, and Waypoint Living Spaces. Winners were announced during the NKBA’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas.
“We are delighted to receive this national distinction,” says Jack Fleischer, CLC, president of Hermitage Lighting Gallery. “NKBA is known as one of the foremost organizations for interior design in the country, so to receive this award from them is a tremendous honor to us.”
“Hermitage Lighting Gallery takes pride in our work to deliver clients the type of living spaces they envision,” Fleischer states. “Our goal is to achieve this level of success with every project we undertake.”
