Summer 2015 Outdoor Lighting Trends

Every summer, new trends emerge in the realm of outdoor landscape lighting. This summer, the theme is all about facilitating an outdoor living space. While landscape lighting has many benefits - keeping your home safe, increasing property value, curb appeal - making a livable outdoor space has become more important than ever!

Outdoor lighting allows you to spend time outside conveniently and safely. Forget about candles. Not only are they expensive but they are also dangerous when forgotten about. With so many options you can customize your much needed outdoor lighting to suit your style, and needs.

Outdoor Chandeliers
Outdoor chandeliers are redefining everything you thought about statement lighting. Chandeliers aren’t just for the dining room anymore. Take your dinner party to a whole new level and relish in not having to constantly relight all the candles! Outdoor chandeliers are specially designed to respond to the elements and provide the kind of light you need while in the great outdoors. Not only that, but they also look incredible. With so many options you can choose a chandelier that suits your surroundings while totally redefining what it means to eat al fresco.

Trend Alert: Lanterns
When it comes to keeping up with the trends, lanterns are one area where it’s totally feasible. While they are still definitely an investment, updating your outdoor lanterns won’t break the bank. Think of it like this: updating the hardware on your kitchen cabinets is a little thing that makes a big difference. Summer 2015 is all about combining the dynamic looks of glass and metal to create a clean, modern look. On the other hand, lanterns are also a great way to let your personality shine (pun intended). Take advantage of novelty lighting in a subtle, stylish way and add an extra flair to your outdoor lighting. If you have something special in mind, be sure to ask, we know some really bright people! 

Be a Lawn Chair Tourist
Embrace your love of another culture with travel inspired lighting. If the tropics are calling you, get in the mood with our gas powered Tiki Lamps. They use a removable wick that makes cleaning and lighting a breeze (even in a breeze!). Or, indulge in your love of everything nautical with some ship worthy outdoor lighting. Choose from nautical lanterns and wall sconces in brushed metal, or bright modern colours. Or, use Asia inspired outdoor lights to evoke a more Zen garden feel.

Be Natural, Blend In

Elements inspired by nature are particularly popular in this year’s outdoor lighting. And how appropriate in an outdoor setting! Don’t be surprised by all the leaf motifs and earth tones you see gracing the lanterns and outdoor light fixtures of your friends’ backyards. And while you’ll be seeing more nature inspired design elements, don’t expect the materials to change. Outdoor lighting needs to be durable and ready for anything that Mother Nature throws at it. Metals and weather resistant plastics are still the norm for naturally inspired outdoor lighting.
