ADG Lighting is proud to have collaborated and contributed to the custom lighting of a majestic property in the Los Angeles area. This contemporary Westside property offers upfront views of the magnificent Riviera Golf Course, with a resort type atmosphere and an open, free flowing floor plan.

We designed and fabricated several planters, which were placed throughout the exterior of the home from curbside to poolside and overlooking the Riviera Country Club golf course. The 30 planters range from oversized 36” square x 48” boxed planters with liners, to dramatically long 5 foot low slung planters with drought tolerant succulents, planted by Seasons Landscaping. Other fixtures around the mid-century home included triangle lanterns with antiqued mirrors and mesh lights.

Glass walls and a large central skylight add to the natural ambiance of the home. Amenities include stone and hardwood flooring, skylights, walls of glass, formal living room with wall fireplace, chef’s kitchen, home theater, wine cellar, master suite with bonus space, guest suite with kitchenette, lounge areas, pool, spa, and a sitting area with a fire pit.

The elegance and comfort of the home is greatly enhanced by the thoughtful custom lighting fixtures by ADG. Our expertise in the collaborative design and manufacture of the contemporary lighting added significantly to the value of the property, which is estimated at $20 million. This home is the perfect way to experience the comfort and elegance of golf course living, while enjoying the seaside beauty of the Pacific Ocean.

Think About Your Kitchen in 2016

ADG Lighting_kitchen_design

The design, function and use of modern kitchens is always evolving. We love our kitchens! They are a creative place where we create and where we congregate. Our friends and family gather in them to share and celebrate life. It is estimated that we spend an average of 3 hours a day in the kitchen. It is an integral part of the overall living space of our homes and worthy of our attention to create a comfortable creative space.

For 2016, one of the major trends in kitchen design is the change in lighting. Our kitchens in 2016 will reflect designs that are a flashback to the 80’s, with integrated living space designs that have a soft-nutted color palette and texture-on-texture contrast. The lighting changes will be based in well-lit cabinetry. No longer will we depend on ceiling lighting or well placed lamps to provide the proper lighting effect. We will see the use of low-voltage lighting strips as accent pieces through the cabinetry. The use of LED lighting will be the norm. The trend will offer the ability to offer better mood setting designs, in combination with recessed can lights. Families will live life more in their kitchens during 2016. Open up the space and let the design enhance the quality of life.

Lighting plays a key role in design of a space. As you look at remodel and renovation projects in your kitchen in 2016, partner with the right expert to bring creativity and function to your project through lighting. ADG Lighting is the right choice for your project and would be honored to partner with you today! Go to to schedule a design meeting.
