This Season's Must have Garden Lighting
Outdoor lighting is too often a bit of an afterthought, but by putting some thought into it and getting it right can give you a magical scene throughout the year. Not just for the festive season! A well-lit garden can add new aspects to any garden landscape and by highlighting the most attractive areas and hiding the not so beautiful.
We’ve been looking into what the leading garden stylists and magazines have been featuring as this season’s must-haves for garden lighting, to show how you can achieve the same 'on trend' look with some of our garden lighting.
House to Home recently carried a feature on a complete guide to outdoor lighting. Not surprisingly the lighting was a critical element and we really liked the way they used permanent lighting to highlight features within the garden, to re-create the same comfortable, homely look, our porch lights comes in 4 traditional but cool colours, clay, coffee bean, slate and shutter blue, all have a lovely subtle shape.
Lurking in the current issue of Homes and Gardens is a lovely piece on lighting your garden with tree lanterns. Candlelight is in a league of its own when it comes to atmosphere, creating a really magical and memorable effect. Our hanging votives are a nice twist on the theme and look great hung in a cluster from a tree. And continuing the candle theme, our new Stornoway Lantern was featured as a best buy for outdoor spaces by Grand Designs, it creates a warm, soft atmospheric glow and is great indoors too.
Our large mesh lanterns were featured recently in Weber Life, the encyclopedia of BBQing. Encased in a wire mesh frame, this rustic lantern is perfect for creating instant, portable ambient lighting, indoors or out. A must for alfresco dining, barbecues and camping.
Another Homes and Gardens feature about a garden room restaurant included our Swinbrook Lantern. We think this style of wall lights are utterly charming and would add a touch of sophistication to any dining room.
And finally, as you can tell, we're backing the candle-look for this summer. And in particular, lighting up a garden pathway with a hanging lantern and crook. They look wonderful, lined up along a pathway, flickering away in the background when outside dining. Such a quick and easy look to achieve! A very Midsummer Night's Dream!
