Good architectural lighting supports good architecture

One of my favorite jobs we’ve done at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio is this architectural and pool lighting job.

The architectural design of this home, pool and gardens, use multiple different angles and blend those angles so seamlessly into eachother. Curves blend seamlessly into straight architectural lines.

Like good architecture, good architectural lighting puts the emphasis on the feeling and mood that’s created. Good architecture and good architectural lighting compliment the living area but don’t take any attention away from the purpose of the area. Great pool lighting should make you want to enjoy the pool. Great patio lighting should make you want to enjoy the patio.

If you take another look at the photo above, try to find all of the outdoor lights that are affixed to the architecture, in the garden and along the walls. As soon as you begin looking for the lights, your eyes will be transfixed with the item they are illuminating – the stunning architecture, the beautiful landscaping, and the gorgeous pool.

Great outdoor lighting can illuminate any area you want — under water, paths, walkways, buildings and more. But when you begin looking for outdoor lighting for your home and gardens, think about the areas where you want to congregate and the mood you want to create. A good lighting designer can create a scene through outdoor lighting that supports your goals and illuminates the oasis you’ve created.

Today’s the day!

What is it about the day after Thanksgiving that has such power to motivate us to move on to the next holiday? Even though most of us are exhausted from cooking or traveling, or just from eating, we get this burst of energy to take care of all of the Christmas details right away.

There are plenty of Christmas details to go around. Planning and buying gifts is almost always the top of the list. But, getting house ready for Christmas usually follows very close behind. And, getting the house ready usually takes more planning so it’s best to attend to it first.

Thanksgiving is generally a really good opportunity to identify what your home needs to be ready for the next big holiday. I realized I was one chair short for the table and really need more serving pieces including a giant fork for serving meats. I could also use a meat platter.

But, we also have to think about what the outside of our home needs. Would outdoor lighting help your guests park more easily? Would it help them get more easily to the door? Would it make you feel better to know that the steps to your front or side door are well lit so any older guests aren’t likely to trip?

Outdoor lighting has so many benefits in addition to making your house look stunning for the holidays. Outdoor lighting increases the security of your home dramatically. It’s a well-documented fact that intruders are much less likely to target darker homes than well-lit homes. Outdoor lighting also helps tremendously with safety.Lighting the areasĀ  people walk around our homes at night is crucial to ensuring the safety of our families and our guests.
