Whether it’s a permanent fixture or popped up for a party, gazebos and pergolas are crying out to be lit up! Illuminating your garden structures can create an irresistible living space in seconds. If there is a power source nearby then definitely consider mains garden lights for complete ease of use. We’d always opt for string lights with their durable cables and extendable lengths they’re ideal for wrapping or hanging. Wooden pergolas suit symmetrical lines, gazebo lights work best when hung with a soft drape. When it comes to colours, the contrast between greenery or timber tones and white hues are a match made in heaven which can’t be missed.
From pontoons to private courtyards, you can add ambience even without a power point. Line paths with festoons and team with lanterns at floor level. For use night after night, plump for outdoor battery lights with a timer function for the ultimate in low maintenance. For warmer climates then it’s worth taking a peek at some solar garden lights as an even more eco-friendly option.
Pretty in pastel! While mixing patterns and colours is a fun way to add depth, working in a similar colour is more calming and looks less busy. Our favourite colour scheme for the summer party season has to be pastels, especially Pantone’s Pink Icing and Petit Four. Think pom poms, paper lanterns and picnic blankets. The soft colours compliment each other with ease and the neutral creams balance out the delicate pinks and blues. Contrasting with the rich greenery, pastel colours really pop. They are perfectly paired with warm white garden lights to create an outdoor living room effect which is always sought after. A combination of lanterns and sparkly fairy lights on all levels are ideal for illuminating your festivities whether it’s a picnic or alfresco banquet!
With warmer weather comes time spent outside. But to spend time outside you need to be able to see what you’re doing. During the day, the sun provides all the light you need, but when the sun goes down, other sources of light are necessary. Here are 8 outdoor lighting ideas to help you create the perfect nighttime entertaining space.
