DIGSpeak - August - 2016


We are really bright and sometimes rather dim

When it comes to creating an inviting home, inside and out, DIGS mantra is “lighting is everything.” From lamps - the “jewelry” of the house to utilitarian/strategic task lighting in kitchens to soft yet focused illumination highlighting your favorite art/objects d’art, DIGS is laser-focused on getting lighting right. In fact, if we may say so ourselves, we’re brilliant at it.

3 Pinehurst Lane
Hyde Park, OH

Rare/superb circa 1936 Spanish Villa on an especially private lane on the Hyde Park Riviera. Incomparable river & city views. Meticulously/entirely renovated and enlarged honoring the architecture yet integrating every conceivable convenience. Features (too numerous to mention) include: 4-car garages, gunite pool & spa, carriage-house apartment.

Hiding in Plain Sight

Seeing any of the homes DIGS’ principal designer Brian Gibson has designed (here’s one) you'll see that his talent for curating collections custom crafted to his clients’ predilections is exceptional. Brian knows how to make a space layered & interesting - and not just at first glance. The more time you spend in a Brian Gibson room, the more you are rewarded. From a delicate ostrich egg fashioned into an accent lamp to a Kuba-cloth-covered ottoman/coffee table, there are details inside of details to discover. Browse the DIGS Gallery for photos showcasing design inspirations of DIGS’ duo of design luminaries, John Harrison & Brian Gibson.

Projects We Dig

Outdoors, lighting is as important as indoors. Illuminating paths, accenting features, elongating vistas and avoiding “welcome to Disney World” effects requires an expert sense of what’s just-right and never too-much. Plus, in all things lighting, we’re always at the leading edge of energy efficiency and system intelligence - marrying state-of-the-art to scene-setting sex-appeal.
