I love these little mason jars hanging from mini-shepherd’s hook. You can get the tutorial and make some for yourself at Finding Home. I can totally picture this lighting in a couple of spots around the perimeter and by the stone bench.
Evenings in our garden are about entertaining – whether that’s our family or having friends round for a small drinks party. They’re also about relaxing after a long day. Because of this, any garden lighting should aim to provide us with a sense of tranquility, as well as security. In the case of the latter, no intruder will lurk in bushes when there’s strategically placed lighting to highlight him or her.
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!
So, you’ll no doubt have sussed out by now that a certain amount of creative thinking is involved in placing outdoor lighting. For this reason it’s really not a bad idea to call in a landscaping professional for advice.
