Ask Balsam Hill with Dagmar Obert: On Outdoor Lighting for Fall

Dear Dagmar,

Fall is my favorite time of the year. For this beautiful season, how can I make my al fresco spaces look stunning with lighting?

Hi Christina,

As the days get shorter and colder, we begin to lock ourselves inside our homes for warmth. Seeing less sunlight signals us that the holidays are only a few months away. However, we can already enjoy the glow and glamour brought by the holidays as early as now by decorating our homes with various lighting options. Candles, string lights, and light fixture replacements are just some of the ways to bring illumination to your interiors, which I will discuss in this post.

Candles

Candles have been around for quite some time, offering a practical use until electricity made them more decorative than functional.  They not only create a warm ambience, but also make a space more special. There is nothing like the glow from a flame. With the help of traditional lanterns and candleholders, they can stand elegantly on our tables, mantles and windows.

Nowadays, people come up with clever ways to display candles. Painted tin cans can be punched with holes to create unique shadow images. Hallowed out logs or large pieces of wood with tea lights create a unique outdoor ambience. Read This Entry
