BY Janet Hall

Here’s a clever idea from today’s Architect Visit: Guard Tillman Pollock in London: a nautical bulkhead light used as over-the-door illumination. Recreate the look with authentic nautical lights from Shiplights, available in several finishes: unlacquered brass and chrome, oil-rubbed bronze, pewter, satin nickel, and more.


Above L: Recreate the look with the Chrome Bulkhead Light with Hood from Shiplights. Designed to withstand wet conditions, it measures 9.6 inches in diameter and is $285. Above R: The Crossbar Chrome Bulkhead Light is available for $280. For more nautical-inspired lighting, see 10 Easy Pieces: Outdoor Bulkhead Lighting.
