At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Richmond we design and install custom architectural and landscape lighting systems for residential and commercial properties. While we are often invited to illuminate a particular property, neighbors and passersby will notice the difference light can make and then invite us to their properties as well. Once in a while, however, we participate in projects that incorporate an entire street, like we did at this year’s Homerama in Midlothian’s Hallsley neighborhood.
Homerama is an annual event where builders, designers and other home providers work together for a 2-week event supporting cancer research. This year, it incorporated 9 new homes in Hallsley. To make the streets and homes pop at night, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives lit each home on the street!
As you can see, the Homerama event can be appreciated at all times with custom-designed lighting. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives took a 2-step approach in this lighting design.
First was to accentuate the stunning and unique details of each home. Every home was built specifically for the Homerama event and no detail was ignored, from architectural lines and stonework to deep colors, pergolas and more. With so much going into the event and to the process of getting ready for it, our trained outdoor lighting designers washed every detail in warm LED lighting to invite the eye to each property.
The second step was to tie the entire street together. Besides a corner streetlamp, there aren’t any street lights on the road. We wanted more light closer to the road that would transition to each property seamlessly. To do that, we added tree lighting to each of the new trees that were planted during the building process. Now, as you look at the street, you don’t notice any dark pockets.
As the new owners of these homes move into their gorgeous homes this fall, they can appreciate coming home to a well-lit house. If you’re looking to add lighting to your property, please contact us!
