We had not intended to build a new house, but only renovate & extend the existing property. However as the project progressed it became apparent that we were planning bigger and better things and it became clear to me that we needed to be certain that the lighting would do justice to, and indeed enhance, the final result. A friend was also in the process of building a house and she recommended we speak to Sally Stephenson at Owl Lighting.
It was a fine recommendation – Sally was approachable, a good listener, took time to understand the requirements in each space and took our draft lighting design and refined it, adding flexibility, interest and depth to each space. Furthermore she was able to recommend specific lights for each location to ensure that the result was not compromised by inappropriate fittings.
Detailed specifications and installation notes were provided, which were an invaluable resource for the electricians and workmen on site. They were also extremely helpful for us – there are so many things to remember when building, and Sally’s involvement took a weight off our minds.
The results are fabulous – we have the ability to adapt the lighting in each space to suit the occasion – be it brightly lit and functional, or dim and moody for the evenings. We love the lights which highlight the architectural details in the house, as they maximise the wow factor of those elements.
So a house which was designed to maximise daylight now also looks amazing at night.
Thank you Sally
Mrs H. Winchester – February 2015,
I just want to say that the lighting looks wonderful and I’m very grateful for your work. Left to my own devices we would have had very ordinary lighting…….
……I will be delighted to recommend you to anyone who is thinking of undertaking such work
Lady T. New Forest– October 2015,

I used Owl Lighting to help us when we were refurbishing our Grade 2 listed house. We have lots of beams and different height ceilings so I knew that getting the lighting right was not only important but also could be quite tricky. Sally Stephenson came for the first site visit extremely promptly and also provided the lighting plan very quickly as the builders wanted it yesterday! She also explained the different types of lighting to me and we are delighted with the final results
Mrs Ohlsen – Sept 2017,
The lights fittings are in place and look VERY fine. Exactly what we were seeking. Many thanks for your help and advice.”
