Very nice.

Your house looks like one near me. The owners procured a new door that would only look good on a McMansion.

Good to see some taste as well as sanity prevailing.

It looks great!

Our house had the same outside lights when we moved in. I'm not sure what they were thinking.

Here's what I have for outside lighting:

Image

It's a Progress P5674 (shown in painted silver) about $52.

They also make a square one:

Progress P5643 (shown in bronze) About $120.

To search for lighting that is not in your eyes (important to me and I expect it of my neighbors when possible) search for "turtle friendly lighting"

Well, I bought 8 of those and 2 of the up/down versions at once through a lighting showroom and got them much cheaper. I cannot remember how much cheaper. The irony is, Home Depot used to sell them (in white or bronze only) for about $40. I bought several on close out for less than $10.

The squares are anodized metal instead of just painted so that is why they are more expensive. There are also many more manufacturers that make similar fixtures.

I would also consider using very small low voltage down lights in the corridor. I have used these:

Purchased in the spun aluminum and then painted the color of the patio cover they were mounted to. They are only 2.5" wide and 3" long, very discrete. The only problem is getting the wiring to them. Those are Focus SL-09
