Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was chosen to light the Nashville Capital Christmas tree for the second consecutive year. Our diligent efforts came to fruition as the Governor, Bill Haslam and his wife, Crissy, kicked off Christmas in the capital with the annual tree lighting ceremony this past Monday.

The tree selected as this year’s Capital Tree is 55-foot Norway Spruce chosen from the Cumberland Forest, where the University of Tennessee uses the roughly 8,000 acres of land for research, due to a storm that hit Nashville a few years ago. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is using over one mile of lights to illuminate this majestic tree via an 80 ft. articulated lift to ensure every light is placed in the perfect spot to shine brightest. We are also topping this beauty with a three-foot jeweled star as the finishing touch.

WBIR-TV out of Eastern Tennessee recently aired a segment outlining the selection of the majestic tree chosen as this year’s annual Christmas conifer. The WBIR article pointed out that up until this year, the state capitol had been using a donated tree.  This year’s  tree was carefully selected from the Cumberland Forest after it was used in a University of Tennessee study on growing Christmas trees on abandoned strip mines where it was planted as part of the study back in 1985.

In 2009, when a windstorm blew over the capitol Christmas tree and urgent help was needed  for a replacement, the Cumberland Forest was there to lend a hand. Upon receiving the news, they immediately began looking around the property and submitted a few pictures of some trees that could serve as a quickly needed replacement.

Our trained installers placing the lighted starburst onto the trees which line the entrance to the Mall at Green Hills in honor of the holiday season.

The time is quickly approaching when Nashville residents will be out in full force doing their holiday shopping. Maybe you have already begun gathering the items on your holiday gift list for friends and family this season. While you are out and about during the holiday shopping season have you ever really thought about how the decorations and holiday lighting on display affects you? What would the holidays be like void of any remnant of holiday cheer as you stroll from shop to shop making your selections? The answer to this question is just that, void. Holiday lighting results in visitors that are excited and their ‘sense of place’ is established upon arrival  to a venue and is reinforced inside.

Xmas OLP Nashville  At Green Hills Mall

Another view of the holiday lighting installation at the Mall at Green Hills in Nashville.

According to research, holiday decorations bring in earlier holiday shoppers to stores and keep them shopping longer. This same data showed that spending for 2012 picked up dramatically during the 4th quarter. This is usually the norm for most retail business to accrue a large percentage of their sales during this time. Holiday time is the most fruitful time of the year for many businesses, including restaurants, food and beverage stores and even sporting goods stores, just to name a few of the areas that feel the impact of 4th quarter sales. With all this in mind, now is the time to make sure your holiday lighting display is in order. You don’t want to wait until the last minute.

The gift of light outdoor holiday lighting

Don’t miss out on the magic of outdoor holiday lighting for the upcoming season.

As a child I remember how holiday outdoor lighting would provide me with a larger-than-life-fascination. My family and I would pile into the car on a brisk winter evening to ride from neighborhood to neighborhood looking at the beautiful Christmas lights residents had in their yards. These enchanted rides made me feel as if I were riding through a winter wonderland and gave me many fond memories I still carry with me today. Even though I am now an adult, looking at a beautiful holiday lighting display makes me feel like a kid again, goose bumps and all.

I know that most Nashville homeowners share the same endearment for  outdoor holiday lighting. Being the Nashville areas premier outdoor  lighting company we realize that outdoor holiday lighting is so much more than installing a few strands of holiday lights, it is a means to bringing emotion and joy during the holiday season. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, our designs are the stuff that dreams are made of. We offer a vast array of colors, themes, and installation techniques that reflect the timeless Christmas lighting of the past to cutting edge holiday lighting designs that make you say WOW!

Don’t miss out on the magic of outdoor holiday lighting for the upcoming season.

When it comes to making decisions about choosing the colors used in your holiday decor each year, do you think with your heart or your head? Holiday decorating, and especially holiday lighting, is a realm of design with the sole purpose of heightening the senses and adding beauty to your surroundings.

Many homeowners are apprehensive about adding color to their holiday display because they cannot visualize their outdoor lighting display using colors.

Loveliest holiday lighting ever

One of our most popular holiday lighting colors is white, but there is much to be said about adding colors to your display too!

Research indicates that visual thinking is common in approximately 60%–65% of the population. Visual thinking is the phenomenon of thinking through visual processing, which includes being able envision design ideas while they are in the planning phase. Many homeowners are reluctant to make the leap from the holiday lighting they have grown accustomed to and go for the gusto when it comes by using bold colors for this very reason. We have had great success by adding colored holiday lights to our displays over the years. Just by adding a singular colored signature tree, or a group of balancing lit trees to your display you can make your landscape really stand out. As part of our outdoor holiday lighting program, our designers can provide examples of how much your display could benefit from adding color. Our talented staff can help you decide the color that best suits your individual landscape and personal tastes. Maybe you have a favorite holiday hue in mind and are “on the fence” about moving forward — Maybe you have no idea where to begin — Choosing the right color can be a very personal choice, and to better help with your outdoor lighting selection we have put together a checklist of what your favorite color says about you. This information will help in deciding the best color addition for your holiday lighting display.

Using the color red in your holiday lighting display ignites excitement and gets attention. Red is known as the color of energy and the symbol of life. It evokes strength, power, and creates a visual impact. Using red can cause onlookers to stop and look at your holiday display in the same manner a traffic light causes us to halt when it turns red.

Capital holiday tree lighting

Governor Haslam and the First Lady at the tree lighting ceremony Monday night.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was proud to be a part of the kickoff to the TN holiday season. Amid a flurry of guests brimming over with holiday spirit, Governor Bill Haslam and first lady Crissy Haslam lit the Christmas tree at the Tennessee Capitol Monday evening. The Tree, which is a majestic 30-foot Norway spruce, features over 6,000 LED lights and festive ornaments courtesy of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville. The tree stands three feet taller than last year’s tree and holds twice as many lights.

The tree was moved to Nashville from state-owned land located in Arrington in honor of the annual Capitol tree lighting which took place Monday, November 26th.

As the Governor and his wife lit the tree, the transition from dark to watching the tree come alive with the Capitol building as the backdrop was truly magical. Even as rain sprinkled from the sky, you could hear the reaction of the crowd as a unified sound of enchantment. Nashville’s WKRN TV News 2 was there to film the event and you can watch a video of  the tree being lit here;  http://www.wkrn.com/story/20187317/nashville-christmas-tree-lighting-ceremony

TN capital tree lighting

This image shows the majestic 30 foot Norway spruce just before it was lit for the first time across from the capitol building.

The event for state employees, their families and the public was held on the plaza across from the Capitol building. The evening celebrations also included horse and carriage rides, a visit from Santa and recording artist Chris Young and even a reindeer named Comet. This event will definitely be held close to the hearts of our Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville’s crew. All the planning, design and teamwork that went into lighting this tree paid off when the tree was lit for the first time. We will always remember the moment, and are proud to have played such a crucial role in making the evening a success!

Stunning outdoor lighting makes a grand entrance even grander at this Nashville estate

In Nashville, there are many beautiful custom-built, custom designed homes that some would describe as estates or mansions. Among homes of this prestige, outdoor lighting must be as prestigious in its design and execution to enhance the multitude of precise design details that go along with a home and landscape this timeless. Mansion lighting, or estate lighting takes an experienced lighting professional that can turn a residence that is already breathtaking during the day into a property that is even more breathtaking at night.


Professional outdoor lighting can add an air of refinement and prestige to any home

Illuminating a mansion or estate can be a daunting task when you take into consideration the  size and elaborate architectural details of a residence of this size. From larger lots with more landscape details, larger entrances, longer driveways, and more windows, the list of focal points to illuminate can become quite long. We start all our lighting designs with assessing the home’s height, width, texture and depth to illuminate and enhance the home’s facade and architectural details. We then move into designing the landscape lighting and using proper placement and selection of fixtures to make gardens and landscaping come to life under the blanket of the night sky. Most of the time, homes of this prestige and quality contain pools, and custom outdoor structures which we pay special attention to enhance  through illumination along with the home and landscape. An outdoor oasis combined with a pool, spa or hot tub becomes an “at home spa” under the trance of pool and water feature lighting.

Nashville mansion pool lghting

Pool lighting paired with mansion and estate lighting this beautiful makes you want to dive right in

When we get the opportunity to add illumination to an already stunning property the effect and ambiance outdoor lighting creates mingled together with an illustrious upscale home  is a match made in heaven. We combine all the facets of quality outdoor lighting in order to present homeowners of mansions and estates a  truly unique and custom lighting design. We can incorporate all the parts of your home that are worthy of making heads turn. Along with making your home more beautiful, outdoor lighting also gives you added security and peace of mind. According to many law enforcement agencies research shows that a well-lit home is less likely to be broken into. Well lit homes deter would-be robbers and give you peace of mind that your home is safe under the veil of night.

Along with designing and installing outdoor lighting that can be enjoyed every day, we also specialize in lighting some of the Nashville areas most prominent homes for the holidays.
