Light plays a huge role in the holidays. Who has a Christmas tree without lights or a menorah without candles? As you beginning your holiday shopping, we wanted to provide you with some ideas that incorporate light. You know that everyone here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives loves lights!
Sometimes a subtle hint of light can make all the different in a space. I found these rattan globes at Plow and Hearth while I was looking for something for my living room. I loved the wooden look before I even realized that they had lights! The small LED bulbs are small enough to be unnoticeable but are beautifully subtle when turned on. They are both indoor and outdoor friendly and would be perfect in a bowl indoors or a planter outside.
Lanterns are a great design element that can be used both inside and out. They come in a variety of shapes, colors and price-points that you are sure to find one that fits your friends’ style. When deciding which one is best, think about the general style of their home. Do they like modern or French country? Pick something that fits. Here are some ideas from Pottery Barn to get you started.
Festoon lighting is perfect for the person on your list that loves the outdoors. Festoon lighting, if you aren’t familiar with it, is string lights that are made for the outdoors. The bulbs are larger and can be strung from the house, deck, porch or any other space. There are also a number of shades that you can add to the lights to dress them up. We at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives can help you to choose and install the perfect set of festoon lights for any outdoor living space.
Candles always make for a great hostess gift. Everyone can appreciate a great candle, right? To make it a little more special look for unique candles or candle holders that will make the recipient smile. Red Envelope and Crate and Barrel have a number of candle and candle holder options that make for wonderful gifts.
At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we’ve had several of our clients purchase gift certificates for our services for their friends and family. Landscape lighting is the gift that keeps on giving, night after night. We will work with you or your friend to design a custom outdoor living system that will highlight all the best aspects of their property and home, all while increasing the safety and security of their home.
