If you follow me on Instagram you’ll probably notice I haven’t posted many images of our homes exterior, because, until recently, it was the part we left until the end (along with our kitchen garden which you can see here). Even small things like painting our avocado green eaves and brown gutters became a non-priority – as much as I disdained them!
I’m working on a full ‘Before and After’ post for next month, but before I do I thought I’d share a few snippets of our exterior, especially because we finally installed our new exterior barn lights!
I reached out to Barn Light Australia when I was looking for some new exterior wall lights, as the previous ones we had installed (that we brought back from Home Depot in the US after a trip to Hawaii) were a bit too cheap for my liking. They were really cute, but they just didn’t quite look right with our house and the quality just wasn’t there either. So, I needed to find something else that would contrast against the house a bit more, that were also a higher quality fitting.
I’ve loved Barn Light Australia’s lights for years and often recommended them to clients or friends, but had never used them myself before.
I chose the Austin Wall Sconce, as it was a clean and simple looking fitting, but also very much that farmhouse / barn style look we were going for.
I also love the fact that they can be custom powder coated in so many different colours. We went for white as we wanted the lights to really pop against our dark, bagged brick exterior (more on that in the Before & After post next month!), but also to tie in with all our white trim.
These lights are such nice quality and the perfect size as well. Once installed we really couldn’t quite believe the difference they made and how much better the house looked!
Barn Light Australia were also so fantastic to deal with too. Top customer service, very friendly and efficient, which I really appreciate as I often have a million things on the go between work, our home renovation and juggling motherhood and family demands!
