Our own Bob Lyons Sr. goes live on the airways with endless ideas for making this Christmas the merriest!

podcast-logo-Porch Ideas NetworkOutdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was filling the airwaves last week when our own Bob Lyons Sr. was featured on Porch Ideas Network via podcast with Mary and Dave. The segment featured Christmas Light Decorating Ideas for Your Front Porch and Yard and secrets on creating wonderful holiday light displays and installing outdoor Christmas lights safely.

This informative and fun segment covered every area of holiday lighting, including choosing the colors you like best and desired location of your display. Here’s a peek:

Colorful Nashville Holiday Lighting

“What you first have to decide is what color you want to use or whether you want to use all white or clear. And then you have to decide whether you want to augment it with different features like starbursts, wreaths, garland, or other holiday decorations.” 

“Then you have to decide if it’s better to concentrate on one area of your yard or porch (and do it really well) or broaden out (and possibly not do as good a job overall).”

The variety of colored LED lighting used in holiday lighting displays was also covered at great length during the segment. In addition, proper spacing of holiday lighting, power requirements, tree wrap holiday lighting and how we combine strings of lights for a cohesive effect were all hot topics!

We can’t divulge ALL our secrets! But you can listen to the full audio program with Bob Lyons Sr. for more lighting tips.

Oh, the places you’ll go — a look into the notable locations we are lighting in and around Nashville:

Orb lighting used at Arrington Vineyards in Arrington TN

Festival lighting installed at Arrington Vineyards in Arrington, TN.

It is usually a no-brainer when someone mentions Nashville the image that flashes in your mind is a guitar-holding, cowboy hat wearing musician, hard-working and hungry to be at the right place at the right time. After all, this is Music City, the place where dreams come true. Nashville is steeped in music history, being home to the Grand Ole’ Opry and noted as the birthplace of country music. Nashville has evolved to become the “go to” destination  from nearly every walk of life for a myriad of reasons in addition to our musical roots.

Music cityBeing in the midst of Nashville’s evolution into a top-notch city has made our business very interesting. Of course, we have designed and installed outdoor lighting for many of the top musical artists that reside in, and around Nashville. Although we cannot name any names as to ensure their privacy, it is exciting to see who answers the door sometimes when we come to call!

Oh,_the_Places_You'll_GoOur commercial outdoor lighting service is filled with just as much intrigue as our residential installations. Having the opportunity to transform and beautify some of the most popular locations in the area is quite humbling. Each time I reflect on the well-known places where we have installed lighting that are often in the spotlight (no pun intended), it reminds me of the famous Dr. Seuss book, “Oh the Places You’ll Go.” When we began Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville over 25 years ago, we never would have imagined the places we would go — literally. With this in mind, here is a look at just a few of the well-known locations where we have worked magic with the addition of outdoor lighting:

The Country Music Hall of Fame: The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum is operated by the non-profit, educational Country Music Foundation® (CMF). The mission of the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum is to identify and preserve the evolving history and traditions of country music and to educate its audiences. The location of the venue adds a strikingly modern touch to the Nashville skyline, and Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville enhanced the majesty of this location with the addition of outdoor lighting!

Loving the LovelessThe Loveless Cafe: You simply cannot visit Nashville without planning a visit to this iconic eatery. The Loveless’ biscuits are so loved that they have earned mention on their  T-shirts! The Loveless has been a fixture in the Nashville area for over sixty years. With a diverse history, the cafe serves up true Southern staples like fried chicken, country ham and, of course, those mouth-watering biscuits. Since its beginning in the 1940’s, the cafe has evolved to include The Loveless Barn ,which is a 4,800 sq. ft. venue that has become the trendiest place around for large-scale events, parties and even weddings.  The Loveless Barn is also home to Music City Roots: Live from the Loveless Cafe which is filmed and recorded there every Wednesday.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville provided the lovely holiday lighting for the Loveless last year, and is honored to provide it again this year. The venue plans to kick off the season at their Bright Lights & Biscuits event set to kick off on November 17th! This year’s holiday lighting promised to be even more enchanting!

Nashville Hit ShowThe Gulch: The Gulch is known among Nashville’s residents to be one of the trendiest and “hippest” neighborhoods around. Not only is The Gulch a popular destination for locals, college students and visitors, it is the first neighborhood in the South to be deemed an LEED certified green neighborhood! The area is packed with urban appeal including office space, retails shops, restaurants, new and renovated buildings and a residential area. You may have even see the Gulch featured in a recent episode of the hit show Nashville!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has provided outdoor lighting at many of the trendiest locations within The Gulch. During the past holiday season we adorned all of the light poles within this unforgettable location with bows and garlands in honor of the holiday season. We also installed permanent festival lighting along the corridors of the Gulch, making it come to life!

 Arrington Vineyards: Since 2007, Arrington Vineyards has been providing a true “wine country experience” of award-winning wines set among the picturesque rolling hills of middle Tennessee. Owned by country music artist Kix Brooks, winemaker Kip Summers, and entrepreneur John Russell, Arrington Vineyards has truly become “Nashville’s Wine Country”.

The addition of orb lighting has made Arrington Vineyards breathtaking in the evening under the spell of this unique lighting technique.

Stay tuned for the exciting details of this year’s tree!

It goes without saying, we are very proud of the opportunity to experience so many wonderful places, and meet so many new faces, all over Nashville and the surrounding area!
