Owl Lighting was established in 2004 by ex film & Channel Four TV publicist Sally Stephenson. She has steadily grown it into a prized mid-size design business, based in Alresford, near Winchester in the heart of Hampshire. Predominantly focusing on residential interiors and beautifully landscaped gardens and exteriors, Sally has steered the company with her love of design and architecture, from small project beginnings to major new build and historical renovation contracts.
Owl Lighting delivers design specs, incorporating the latest trends and lighting innovations that grace London pied a terres, cozy country cottages, historical mansions, seaside holiday houses and landscaped terraces and gardens. One-off kitchen, bedroom, drawing room and garden briefs are always welcomed.
With over 350 projects already completed Sally is highly regarded for her thoughtful design and concentration on up to the minute lighting advances in an era when the complexity of technology has never been greater. This year sees Paul Stephenson, Sally's husband and a technical lighting expert join the company from his previous role with leading commercial innovators Clearvision Lighting.
In the early 2000s halogen lighting was ubiquitous, quickly overtaken by LED products, many early examples of which were cheaply produced and unreliable. Superbly executed designs were often thwarted by cheap imports from the Far East. This proved the impetus for Sally and Paul to design their own curated range of products and suppliers that would work well for LED home projects. More recently the trend for using organic materials, particularly wood and paper has been enabled by the technological development in LEDs. This would not have been possible in the past because of the heat given off by previous forms of light sources.
Owl Lighting's creative design and technological expertise, its vast experience of working directly with clients, interior designers and architects marks this dynamic team as a forceful presence; equally adept with minimal modern to listed heritage.
RECENT CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
'I had no idea what a difference good lighting would make to the enjoyment of our house until Owl Lighting made a few simple tweaks to one room. After that, I was hooked and kept coming back for more. I wish we had done it sooner. The areas of the house that have been worked on by Owl Lighting are now well lit, without being bright, and warm and lovely to be in. In short they have been transformed.'
Mrs K. Winchester, November 2016
'It only took a 5 minute phone call for Sally to understand our lighting needs and I knew I had found just the right person to design the lighting for our new kitchen. She was a complete professional throughout the entire project. She came to the house to understand the room and she was here whenever she thought the builders or engineers needed her guidance. She drove the lighting design, worked with our builders and electricians and ensured everyone hit the necessary deadlines. On top of that she created a beautiful lighting scheme in my kitchen with high quality fixtures and a great variety of moods for different occasions. As a nice bonus her enthusiasm was infectious and she was a joy to work with.'
