DIY: Creating Character with Outdoor Lighting
14 Tuesday Aug 2012
Why are twinkling lights so transfixing? Ever since 6th grade, when I urged my mom to let me hang clear Christmas lights in my bedroom one summer, I’ve always loved how low wattage lighting has the ability to transform a space.
I’m not talking about utilitarian landscape lighting. I’m talking about lighting that’s inviting, warm and romantic — lighting that makes you want to linger to watch them twinkle. Boring old pergola? Awkward side yard? Transform it into a usable, beautiful outdoor space starting at $39.99 for 21′ of clear globe lights.
