Contemporary design integrates clean lines, polished surfaces and artfully blended details. Simple, without being boring and understated without being stark, contemporary landscape design is the ideal finish to modern homes. Adding in contemporary outdoor lighting highlights design features while providing additional security for the yard. Light one area for entertaining, or design a lightscape for the entire yard with simple and modern light fixtures.
The underlying principle of contemporary design is simplicity. Outdoor lights should be used to enhance existing features. Shine a spotlight on a water feature, decorative garden or statuary. Use a soft flood light to brighten a spa or pool area. Add understated light fixtures to porch or deck areas for everyday use. Paired with simple, sleek-lined outdoor furniture, modern light fixtures are an easy way to add style outdoors.
We often hear ‘bring the outside in’ when designing indoor living spaces – the reverse is also true for the outside. Many of today’s contemporary outdoor lighting fixtures are inspired by those found indoors. Add pendant or drop lights to highlight an outdoor eating area. A modern floor lamp is perfect for lighting an outdoor entertainment space. Outdoor living has surpassed simply eating outside. With the right contemporary fixtures and lights, creating a modern outdoor living space becomes possible.
Don’t forget to add in contemporary fixtures for added security. Path lights are an easy way to add not only a design element to your landscaping, but to increase the safety of your yard. Flood and spot lights easily illuminate shadowed areas. Path and flood lighting help keep visitors safe while highlighting design elements and landscape features.
