Last year when we were renovating the Lodge I searched high and low for built in night-lights. I know someone who usually goes to the toilet once during the night and I wanted to hard-wire in some night lights in the hallway and bathroom. Surely I’m not the only one trying to solve this problem… But I couldn’t find anything, so resorted to a plug in night-light (like some silly after thought).
These power points from SnapPower in the good-ol’ USA introduce LED’s into a power socket (with light sensor). Great idea – when can we buy a NZ version ???
Finally, we have some neon in the house (wanted some for ages). Bought this for $50 on Trade Me. Photo doesn’t do justice to the green light. It’s above the door to our bedroom – I’m expecting there will always be a vacancy…..
Coincidentally read this great article on Stuff recently about saving our neon heritage. A little conflicted here – LED’s are the culprit – I love LED. It’s estimated there are fewer than 20 neon benders (there term, not mine) left in New Zealand. I’m surprised it’s that many. Anyway, I look forward to the day I can commission a neon piece from one of them :-)
From Northern Lighting in Norway – the carbon filaments are like neon – super cool, just like Northern Lighting
