House Calls and Capitol Lighting Moves In!

Capitol Lighting Presents:

An Urban Seaside Retreat By Laura Newland


Take a look at the latest photos of this spectacular house of lights from Laura Newland, Interior Designer and Lighting Specialist from Capitol Lighting’s Eatontown, New Jersey showroom:


Lighting designer Laura Newland from Capitol Lighting, along with Contractor and Architect, Rich Van Trease, answers the call and a bright new life begins in Sea Girt, New Jersey.



Newlyweds, Mr.  and Mrs.  Edward and Anca Stachelek are residents of Hoboken, New Jersey. They set out to design their dream vacation home in the quaint seaside neighborhood of Sea Girt.  They found an amazing builder and a creative, lighting designer whom together made the job fun and affordable.


Enjoy this room-by-room tour of remarkable craftsmanship and gorgeous lighting designs throughout…


The Stachelek’s envisioned a home in keeping with the classic charm of the neighborhood. They also wanted to personalize their new home with updated and trend-setting lighting in a chic Urban-Restoration style.  We begin our tour with nautical outdoor Troy Lighting.

Outdoor wall lights from Troy Lighting provide security and a warm welcoming illumination.


Outdoor Fan - 20140813_170057

An outdoor fan from Kichler Lighting adds fashion and comfort to the front porch.



Making use of the natural light in the home office, the windows are flanked by custom-crafted wall sconces and a semi-flush dome fixture from Hubbardton Forge.  The hand-forged wrought iron adorned with a hand-applied finish works beautifully to accentuate the exquisite detail of the ceiling.





Bringing an energized, clean elegance to the kitchen, chrome and glass pendant lights over the island are magnificent.  The full-bodied dome lights blend superbly with the handsome cabinetry. The island lighting adds just enough “pop” and panache, while carrying the classic and stately rustic vibe throughout.





The chandelier’s vintage finish matches perfectly with the wood dining table.  The crystal is tailored and modern for a brilliant blend of elements in the dining room.  Tapered candle wall sconces by Hubbardton Forge expand the space and complement the chandelier beautifully.




Flights of fancy precisely balanced with a well-chosen foyer fixture and wall sconces provide excellent illumination and a tasteful decorative finish to the gorgeous, hand-stained, winding staircase.

“I like to use outdoor lights indoors when the space calls for it.”





A harmonizing blend of symmetry, the 8-light “Constellation” chandelier by Hubbardton Forge looks like it was made for this brilliant octagonal sky-lit opening of the master bedroom suite.  The 20-foot cupola is illuminated with energy-efficient LED uplighting.


Below the cupola in the master suite we added complementary wall sconces from Hubbardton Forge.  To add softness and elegance we selected fabric shades.  The sconces, along with recessed lighting and LED soffit illumination serenely bring out the colors and architectural features in the master suite.

This master suite is sure to relax and revive.





Semi-flush ceiling fixtures offer Old World charm to the guest bedrooms.  These heirloom quality light fixtures feature hand-forged wrought iron and water glass that is timeless, graceful and substantial.





A row of urban pendant lights awaits future basement wet bar and furnishings.  *If possible, it is always easier to have your lighting fixtures installed before the new furniture arrives.  With a bit of planning and great communication between the builder and lighting designer, you can do it right and have your lights in place first!

The stairway to the “lower level” has two lanterns lighting your way to an expansive living space for the entire family to enjoy.


“The best part of my job is to be able to do a site visit, get a copy of the floor plans, get to know my clients on a personal level and select spectacular lighting that reflects them, their lifestyle and complements their home.  It’s like adding the stunning jewelry to the little black dress!”–Laura Newland
