Can you believe that we are halfway through the summer of 2013? Have you been enjoying this summer season?
To me, there are not many things better than sitting outside and enjoying a beautiful summer evening with family and friends. Imagine – sitting in your backyard with a cool beverage in your hand and your partner by your side; the lighting bugs are flashing, the crickets are chirping, and the stars are twinkling overhead. You close your eyes and breathe in deep, finally relaxing after a long day of work…
Sounds great, huh? But, lets be honest, these ‘deep breath’ moments are beautiful, yet rare, in life. Yet they don’t have to be the rarefied air of summer vacations, spa visits, or millionaires. The key to ‘deep breath’ moments is found in the atmosphere around us. Smart homeowners intentionally invest in creating an outdoor atmosphere that encourages rest, relaxation, and fellowship.
Maybe you have invested little time and money making your deck or patio look and feel just right. Wouldn’t it be great to fully enjoy your investment at night? The beauty of deck and patio lighting is that it extends your living space into the evening hours. The secret of great deck and patio lighting is found in our signature combination of deck and moon lighting (you can see both in the picture here).
In the picture above you will notice the “deck lights” casting a subtle glow from the stone walls onto the patio floor. These are custom light fixtures designed to mount directly onto your deck or patio; our deck lights are made of solid copper so, as they patina, they will blend seemlessly with their surroundings. In this picture, you will also see the effect of our famous “moon lights”. These lights are appropriately named because, like a full moon, they give off a soft glow from above. As this picture shows, the point of moon lighting is to light your patio without drawing attention to the light itself. Although we most often mount moon lights high in trees, we have the experience and expertise to install these lights in other discrete areas (when necessary) to light a deck or patio.
Let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee help you create a ‘deep breath’ outdoor atmosphere for your deck or patio this summer. We can create a custom combination of deck and moon lighting to give your home the perfect outdoor atmosphere to compliment any summer evening event.
