Labor Day Party Planning is Happening Now! Make Sure Your Outdoor Lighting Keeps the Party Going into the Night!

Charlotte Labor DayOutdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte has been busy as the summer season comes to a close. Let’s get together to make the last big summer three day weekend a blast with a pre-Labor-Day party lighting makeover before family and friends arrive for the festivities!

The nights are getting longer and creeping earlier into the daylight hours, so you should ensure that your backyard oasis has the proper illumination so that your holiday celebration doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. The evenings are still warm in September in the Charlotte region, and there is no reason not to continue to take advantage of your backyard for a few more months of outdoor fun.

Charlotte architectural lighting (1)Since we are a full service outfit, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can then take care of the job of regularly maintaining your turn-key lighting system so you don’t ever have to worry about it. We can add or extend it in the future as your needs change, upgrade fixtures if you want a whole new look or even help with existing systems.

Don’t wait until the last minute to be put on the Labor Day schedule as appointments are filling up.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte ensures your current system is functioning correctly by bulb replacement and inspection of transformer, wiring and timers.

If you need a light boost in dark areas that might be an invitation to thieves or you simply want to make it easier for guests to traverse your property without trips and falls, we can augment an existing system easily to make it safer with additional light.  Whether your current fixtures are shabby looking and are cheaply made, or maybe you are ready to change your lighting scheme to something a bit more modern—we can assist you with an upgrade that will make you proud and add value and safety to your home.

Backyard-pergola-lightingTo make your property party ready for Labor Day, we can discuss where your guests like to linger, sit and dine–and we can bathe those areas in warm light so they feel comfortable hanging out well after nightfall. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte, we know that if family and friends find it hard to see their food or grab a drink as darkness hits, they will simply figure it’s time to leave the party or want to head into your home instead.  We will make sure it’s easy for you to cook in the evening so you can BBQ well into the later hours with useful task oriented lighting.

We can add sparkly overhead illumination over your deck or patio or even above your pool that will provide plenty of natural looking light for your Labor Day entertainment. We can light up the shrubs and trees around your property, fire pit, pergola or any other feature you like to create an inviting look that will encourage your guests to gather, talk and have an end of summer blast.

The vintage charm of this Elizabeth area home and its landscaping is preserved and enhanced through the collaborative efforts of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte and Solow Design Group

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingOur latest project, located in the Elizabeth area of Charlotte entailed the illumination of the custom landscape design created by Solow Design Group. As always, it is a pleasure to work with a firm with such an incredible reputation in the exterior design industry. To fully complement the renovated landscape of this vintage 1930’s home, we custom designed and installed an outdoor lighting system that transformed the entire perimeter of the property.

In the early 1900s homes typically maintained simple landscape designs consisting of foundation plantings, clipped boxwood and hedge-lined walkways from the street to the front door. It wasn’t until the 1930s that Thomas Church began a movement in residential landscaping that created outdoor spaces as extensions of indoor living spaces, called garden rooms. Following his garden style, hardscapes were brought to the home landscape, with the addition of patios off of back doors and liberal use of plants in natural forms to soften the overall effect.

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingOutdoor rooms extend the home living area. It’s evident in these amazing photos, that Solow Design Group successfully created a garden room complete with sitting areas and walkways that preserve the vintage charm of this property. This in turn provided us with the perfect “canvas” upon which we rendered a complete lighting system to enhance and extend the homeowner’s enjoyment of their newly designed landscape area well into the hours after the sun goes down.

The entire perimeter of this beautiful property has been transformed. Low-growing shrubs and raised beds of perennials around the outside edges of the outdoor patio provide natural beauty and stabilize the patio and walkway flagstones. Notice the curves that were incorporated into the hardscape design which soften the effect and add visual interest throughout the landscape design.

Elizabeth Outdoor Lighting

Amongst the natural areas of foliage and rock created by Solow Design Group, we had a mix of new fixtures and design additions of high quality LED. In addition we converted the homeowner’s existing line voltage to super-efficient LED and converted many of the handmade specialty fixtures the homeowner had picked out for her design, which are quite whimsical and converted those to LED as well for continuity of the lighting design.

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingThe benefits of converting an existing system to LED lighting include:

  • a more clean, natural and beautiful illumination
  • an electric bill which will cost substantially less each month
  • longer bulb life with less frequent replacement
  • less of a carbon footprint on the environment
  • UV free bulbs which are less prone to attracting insects and they are more durable and resilient than ordinary lighting systems

No matter the architectural style of your home or whether you need a single bulb area illuminated or you are looking for a comprehensive lighting system for all of your home and surrounding property, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is your first choice. A custom created outdoor lighting design can be an integral part of your outdoor living space and landscape…adding just the right touch to your property. Extend your outdoor living to the hours after the sun goes down, whether it is for entertaining or just relaxing in the evening with loved ones.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte creates a custom outdoor lighting design to complement a contemporary landscape design by Solow Design Group

Cotswold outdoor lightingOver the years Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte has had the opportunity to work with some of this area’s finest exterior contractors, such as custom outdoor living space design/build firms, pool contractors and landscape designers. Our most recent outdoor lighting design installation was a collaboration with one of Charlotte’s best landscape design professionals, Solow Design Group for a contemporary residence in the Cotswold area.

When these homeowners decided to update their landscaping to make it more complementary to their urban home, they turned to the professionals at Solow Design Group to make it a reality. For more than 30 years Solow Design Group has been designing and building landscape projects ranging from traditional to contemporary which consistently exceed their client’s expectations. As a firm with such an incredible reputation in the exterior design industry, we were thrilled to be invited to work in collaboration with them to custom design and install an outdoor lighting system for this project.

Charlotte outdoor lighting for contemporary upscale homes

Contemporary exterior light fixtures are a great way to focus attention on areas you wish to highlight. Starting with the front façade of the home, we used well lights to highlight the crisp, clean lines of its contemporary architecture, enhancing the urban appeal of this lovely home. The stunning and unique rock wall flanking the front sidewalk is built from colored stones. To bring out the different facets of the stones and to keep the sure-footing of guests after dark, up lighting was installed around the wall. Additionally, to accentuate special plants and trees, compact direct spotlights were used, providing an extra dose of ambient light in the landscape.

Charlotte unique outdoor lighting designs

To bring out the different facets of the stones and to keep the sure-footing of guests after dark, up lighting was installed around the wall.

For the rear portion of the property, amongst the natural areas of foliage and rock created by Solow Design Group, we installed several “Sparklers” (as shown in the pictures below)–light fixtures which are custom-made and created specifically for this project. Note the holes and the unique light pattern they cast across the rocks and against the wall creating variety in the layout. For an additional layer of safety, pathway lighting was installed in several key points throughout the property.

Charlotte unique outdoor lighting designs

Outdoor wall/sconce lights illuminate the exterior of your home and add character to your outdoor living space as they wash the wall’s flat surface in light, providing a nice ambient glow that makes any space feel homey. The upscale sconces used throughout the backyard were purchased by the homeowner and were originally line voltage fixtures, but we converted them to LED for continuity of the lighting design.

Take a look at our completed project in Charlotte, NC, featuring Attraction Lights!

Attraction LightsThis week we wanted to share our completed project featured in our original story titled “Artistry through lighting is what our most recent installation is all about!” For this installation we paired our traditional high-quality LED fixtures with decorative lights made by Attraction Lights and available through Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte. The use of these lights draws the eye to the artistry of the fixture and the haunting shadows they cast.

In this video clip, Larry Spada, who is the creative director and brand strategist with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Richmond, VA, and resident of Charlotte NC, highlights the completed project in the evening.

This installation consisted of replacing two of Larry’s existing fixtures with decorative Attraction lights at well-appointed locations to enhance the front of the property. The project also included the installation of three (3) Boca lights to help illuminate and showcase the planted areas around the front perimeter of the home and along the driveway to enliven the beautiful, mature crepe myrtle tree that is in now in bloom!

LED lighting is a cleaner, more natural and beautiful illumination

Charlotte entryway lighting (2)Making sure the Queen City’s homes and their surrounding properties are always shown in their best light is what Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte has been doing for more than 17 years. During that time we’ve seen some fantastic changes in this industry. In the early part of our business, traditional halogen systems were considered cutting edge, but as time has passed and technological advancements have been made, LED systems have taken that leading spot.

LED Outdoor Light bulbs

LED bulbs last much longer and are more energy efficient

We keep up with these advancements so we can keep our customers informed and up to date with lighting options which have less energy consumption, less bulb replacement, and less negative impact on the environment…all of which are positive savings for you, our client. Obviously, when it comes to LED lighting less is always more.

Lighting the way to a greener future, these innovative illuminators use 75 percent less energy, last 25 times longer than incandescent light bulbs, and do both at a cooler temperature. In the energy industry, as well as for homeowners, the combination of these impressive features into a single bulb along with the new warm and inviting sunlight-like color rendering capabilities make LEDs a homerun, especially when compared to halogen or incandescent bulbs.

If you currently have a traditional lighting system, either because you chose not to go with LED at your initial installation or it was purchased at a time when LED outdoor lighting was not as accessible, learning this information may have you thinking, “I really wish I would’ve chosen an LED system.” Well we have good news–all is not lost. Converting your existing halogen or incandescent outdoor lighting system to LED is a viable option for many homeowners and well within reach.

Charlotte architectural lightingIt starts with a full system inspection to see if LED conversion is possible. Most traditional outdoor lighting systems such as halogen can easily be converted to LED, especially if they are less than 12 years old. In addition, a well-maintained system stands a greater chance at being a suitable candidate for LED conversion and in most cases, the conversion consists of only a lighting implement (or bulb) conversion.

In the event that your existing system is older, we can provide an LED equivalent to any fixtures that do not meet criteria for conversion through bulb implementation due to their age or qualifications. Our outdoor lighting professional can inspect your existing system and determine if your system is a candidate for conversion. We can usually retro-fit about 95% of our lighting and a lot of our competitors’ systems too. Once your system is deemed fit to undergo the conversion, you can start enjoying the many benefits of LED outdoor lighting.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives - Brantley Front Entry

The benefits of converting your current system to LED lighting include:

  • a more clean, natural and beautiful illumination
  • an electric bill which will cost substantially less each month
  • longer bulb life with less frequent replacement
  • less of a carbon footprint on the environment
  • UV free bulbs which are less prone to attracting insects and they are more durable and resilient than ordinary lighting systems

If you are ready to make the change to an LED conversion Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is the area’s choice for upscale outdoor lighting, including the latest in LED technology and we believe in giving our clients more. We can take care of all your outdoor lighting needs including design, upgrades, installation and maintenance of your lights.

Charlotte Festival Lighting is Popular Among Homeowners Who Enjoy Outdoor Living!

Charlotte Festival Outdoor LightingFestival outdoor lighting is hot! You have probably seen festival lighting,(sometimes referred to as fiesta, festoon or Cafe lighting) the last time you flipped through the pages of an upscale home & garden magazine. Festival lighting is all the rage for homeowners wanting to add ambiance in their outdoor settings. This style of lighting is one of the most interesting and versatile lighting trends customers are requesting. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte embraces emerging and unique outdoor lighting ideas and new ways to introduce not only illumination into an area, but also as a way to convey a feeling of a mood within a space.

Festival lighting in outdoor living space

Festival lighting was added to this outdoor living space to create ambiance and enhance use of the space in the evening.

The origins of Festival lighting began with its namesake; festivals and originated as a way to light outdoor areas in honor of outdoor celebrations. Street festivals and fairs throughout the world, and historically,  are often draped in lights for an evening or two to commemorate a significant local event and removed at festivals end. Permanent festival lighting takes this dramatic lighting effect to a new level because it allows you to indulge in its appeal night after night. We have received many requests from Charlotteans requesting festival lighting installation in their own backyards and requests continue to pour in as more homeowners, and even business owners, are requesting this unique lighting for their backyards, outdoor living spaces and commercial storefronts.

There’s much more to permanent festival lighting than just stringing up a string of lights — much more. Keep in mind, though similar in nature, all festival lighting is not the same. Generally festival lighting falls into two categories, orb or pendant lighting and festoon lighting. Each genre of permanent festival lighting has its own distinct beauty and style.

  • courtyard-festival-lightingFestoon Lighting – Festoon lighting is a romantic and unique lighting technique and serves as a great way to illuminate a difficult or overlooked outdoor area in your landscape or transform a courtyard or patio. This technique entails installing multiple strands of low-voltage LED festoon lights over the span of the area we are illuminating. We also use cable to support the weight of the electrical wiring when we install permanent festival lighting over an area with a large span; this ensures the safety and the integrity of the system. We use commercial-grade lighting products and professional installation to achieve this hypnotic lighting effect.
  • Arrington Vineyard orb lighting used in treesOrb Lighting – Orb lighting lends an ethereal quality to any outdoor area where it is installed because this genre of lighting gives the appearance of being “free-floating”. Orb lighting   is available in 10″, 12″ and 16″ and in white,colored as well as clear acrylic. The effect these lights add to an outdoor setting is enchanting. Though these lights are contemporary in design they look great in  both rural and urban themed settings.

Attraction Lights 4×4 Circle Cross Series.

In our previous post, “Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte and Attraction Lights are the artistic union of light and shadow, where form enhances function“, we discussed the way one of our newest decorative lighting mediums, Attraction Lights, draws the eye to the  artistry of the fixture and the haunting shadows these lights cast. This week, our focus is a recent outdoor lighting installation which showcases the beauty and benefit of these decorative lights when used alongside our traditional fixtures.

This installation entails replacement of his existing fixtures with two(2) decorative Attraction lights at well-appointed locations to enhance the front of the property.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte and Attraction Lights are the artistic union of light and shadow, where form enhances function

Charlotte-Focal-Lighting

Focal point statuary lighting at Charlotte home.

In a gallery setting, the lighting of artwork is crucial to supporting the meaning of the artwork.  Soft lighting illuminates the image or sculpture for subtle consideration, while strong lighting creates strong highlights and shadows to enhance the physical form of the object. In the outdoor lighting industry, your home and its surrounding property are the physical forms of the object for which the outdoor lighting design, a.k.a. artwork, of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte enhances…meaning essentially, our artwork enhances your most beloved work of art, your home and property, highlighting its meaning and value to you.

Considered artists of light and shadow, we create custom lighting designs (our artwork), that are a combination of soft ambient lighting and task lighting which heightens the textures, architectural elements and colors of your home; increases the functionality and safety of areas and structures on your property; and adds complexity and depth to your garden and landscape. We are currently creating just such artwork for a client in the Queen City with traditional Outdoor Lighting Perspectives fixtures and the addition of Attraction Lights’ artistic sculptural lighting in 4×4 bollard light fixtures.

Attraction Lights is Lyle Braud’s company which came about after he spent many years creating artistic garden lighting layouts and beautifully tailored landscape light designs for his landscape design build company. For more than 12 years now, he has focused his artistic energies on the sculptural designing of distinctive lighting fixtures which provide excellent LED lighting and can stand alone as incredible works of art. With geometric, abstract, or nature-like designs, their shadow pattern lighting adds drama and beauty to any area in which they are installed, while helping to direct the eye through the landscape.

Although the majority of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte’s lighting designs are created with the core idea of “focus on the effect, not the fixture”, some require a bit more. There is certainly a time and place where it is quite apropos to incorporate a lighting fixture which “has a strong, sculptural presence during the day, and are a beautiful, glowing presence at night,” as these marvelous illuminations are described by Randall Whitehead, nationally known lighting designer, author, and speaker. We absolutely agree and feel that these wonderful, artistic illuminated elements are as intriguing as they are captivating. They can be used as a stunning work of art in your landscape, or as a conversation starting centerpiece or focal point in your garden.

These pagoda-like pathway lights, driveway lights, bollards, area lights, or garden sculptures come in a variety of materials, sizes and pattern styles formed within the metal housing which cast a distinct light and shadow pattern on the surfaces surrounding the light fixture. The interplay between object and shadow is enchanting, almost supernatural. Unique features include a light source hidden inside the cap of the fixtures (this prevents the glare typically associated with a traditional pagoda light and many of the bollards available today), inserts made of art glass and acrylic as well as those made of traditional clear glass, signature design elements and the ability to integrate custom graphics and fixture design for a distinguished outdoor lighting design.

Harsh flood lights or a total lack of illumination are anything but relaxing. With that in mind, wouldn’t the addition of a custom designed lighting system which combines the warm glow of ambient light for mood enhancement and focal lighting to accentuate features which add to the allure of your pool or spa and surrounding areas complete the look?
