As I told you yesterday I think outdoor lighting is very important but I don’t think even I understood how important I considered it to be… Why am I saying this? Because since I wrote that post I haven’t been able to stop searching for nice outdoor lamps on the net, and believe me… I’ve found plenty of nice alternatives!
I wanted to share a few of the alternatives with you here. I think all these lamps would look great on houses and cottages owned by people who likes the old, classic style. I’m aware of the fact that they’re not very modern, but I’ve always preferred an older touch at home.
Imagine these lamps on your wall… Do you find any favorites among them? I’m not even able to choose between them, I love them all!
Have you ever walked down the street a late summer night, watching all the beautiful houses with beautiful outdoor lighting? Then you’re probably aware of the fact that a house and a garden can look so much nicer with the right lighting. The perfect outdoor lighting can actually give an almost magical feeling to the garden in the evening and it can make the house look classic and beautiful during daytime.
Do you put much effort into the outdoor lighting outside your house? I haven’t done that before but I’ve always been fascinated by the fact that outdoor lamps can change the impression so quickly. A garden that looked so ordinary during daytime can change into an amazing place after sunset and a house that used to look plain can reach its full potential with help from some beautiful wall lamps. I will definitely pay more attention to this fact this year and it’s time for my home to get a lighting makeover as well. Maybe it’s time to improve your home with some new outdoor lighting as well?
I really love viewing photos of nice gardens and houses on the net. There are so many beautiful samples to look at and get inspired by. All these hours that I’ve spent viewing photos also made me realize one thing. It’s just as important to look after the exterior of a house as it is to care about the interior. The exterior has a huge impact on the big picture and there are plenty of things you can do to improve that picture…
1.Take a look at the mailbox. Do you like it? If the answer is no: Replace it! Buy a mailbox that actually fits in with the style of your house. Do you want a classic look, a vintage look or a modern look? You can express this with help from the mailbox.
2.Do you have a fence? Does it look good and does it match the style of your garden and house? The fence and the gate is the first thing that your visitors will see when they come to visit and it’s important that it looks good.
3.Do you have a nice looking, visible number sign or adress plaque on the house or the fence? It makes it easier for the postman of course but it also makes it a lot easier for your friends and relatives when they come to see you. Make sure that the plaque fits in with the rest of the house.
These are just a few of the things you can have a look at if you want to improve your home in a simple way. Do you have more ideas to fill in?
