We have been busy designing and installing holiday lighting for many of the ceremonies scheduled to take place over the coming weeks including the festivities taking place in Historic Centerville, TN!

We want to invite you and your to witness the magic first hand! Mark your calendar for November 29th 5 pm – 8 pm., for the Hickman County Chamber Christmas Open house! Many businesses on the square will be open late for you Christmas shopping and the historic Courthouse has been beautifully lit for Christmas by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives!  The “switch” is set to flip promptly at 6 pm. We designed the display using a mixture of classic C6 and C9 LED bulbs to add an air of nostalgia. The display is also fully operable through a convenient wireless remote control.

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”.

As the Nashville area’s premier outdoor lighting company, we have been very busy the past few months getting some of the most beloved locales in the area adorned with holiday lights in honor of the season. From adding holiday cheer in The Gulch, to being bestowed the honor of designing and lighting The Capital tree for the second consecutive year, we can now look back and enjoy the fruits of our labor! This year, we were also asked to design and install the holiday lighting for the well-known Loveless Cafe.

The Loveless Cafe is a Nashville hot spot that is steeped in history. 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 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.

As if it was even possible to make the Loveless Cafe even lovelier in honor of the holidays, we did! As part of this stunning holiday lighting design we installed a 25-foot garland tree and adorned it with lighted starbursts, mini-lights and iconic C7 LED lights. We also installed a retro-inspired mix of holiday lighting around the cafe itself, including roofline lights, wrapped tree lighting and various lighted starbursts. The completed project is nothing short of magical!

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.

Our most recent project is providing the Christmas lighting this season for the entrance of the Mall at Green Hills located at Hillsboro Pike right here in Nashville. We are installing 25 lighted starbursts and 120 strands of LED mini lights to the trees that line the entrance to the mall. We cannot wait to photograph evening shots of the trees once the installation is completed, so stay tuned for more to come…

Our holiday outdoor lighting is the stuff that dreams are made of, goose bumps and all!

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.

The gift of light outdoor holiday lighting

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. Not only is holiday lighting a visual experience, it can also trigger happiness and joy by conjuring up memories and nostalgia of Christmases past. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville offers holiday lighting customers a large selection of traditional inspired lighting designs. We also specialize in staying on trend with bold outdoor lighting designs that make you think outside of the box.

Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, elegant white and clear outdoor lighting is among our most requested for the holidays. Customers love the simplicity and refined elegance that comes from using white and clear lights in their holiday display. 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.

This majestic home is lit with red along the home’s entry to add drama for the holidays.

What your favorite holiday color says about you

  • Red- the attention getter – This classic color is the epitome of Christmas, from being the dominant color of candy canes and Santa’s suit and who ever heard of Rudolph the green nosed reindeer? 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.

    This wrapped tree lighting done in blue lights is mesmerizing .

  • Blue- the color of snow – Overall, blue is a calming, restful color and is the first color that comes to mind when you envision a winter wonderland.  Blue is associated with serenity which makes it a perfect holiday lighting color choice to create a tranquil lighting display.
  • Green- the equalizer - Green is located at the center of the color spectrum and is considered the color of balance and restoration. Green is the color we associate with nature, making it a solid choice for a holiday lighting color for use outdoors. Green is also a calming color and is associated with hope, generosity and peace.  By using green you can add balance and harmony to your Christmas lighting.

    Nashville holiday lighting blue tree lighting

    This display features a signature tree in blue holiday lights.

  • Purple – the royal color – Purple is known as the color of royalty and is associated with prosperity, wisdom, and sophistication. If you want to add drama to your holiday lighting display, try using purple.  Using this hue can also evoke meditation and spiritual awareness making it the Zen choice in Christmas lighting.
  • White – elegance and innocence – This classic holiday lighting color is a symbol of purity and innocence. White lends itself to simplicity and freshness when used in a lighting display.  The perfect color for emulating the look of a white Christmas, even if you lack the snow!
