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.

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.

Green is the color we associate with nature, making it a solid choice for a holiday lighting color for use outdoors.

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, how lovely are thy branches

This large evergreen is lit with all white LED lights and a bundle of lighted presents sits beneath its branches beckoning Santa’s arrival.

When you think about all the parts of what make a holiday lighting display memorable the beautifully lit trees are what comes to most of our minds. There is simply something magical about adding light to a tree in any genre of outdoor lighting. It is like the tree comes to life under the glow of the lights. Each tree in your landscape has a specific personality. This is conveyed through the form of the tree, from its height, width and the manner in which the branches extrude. Our job as outdoor lighting professionals is to determine which type of lighting will best fit the personality of each tree and bring out the beauty and presence that makes a lighted tree a joy to behold. We use a variety of fixtures, angles, techniques and effects to achieve this when the tree is part of a landscape lighting installation. We also use a varied scope of holiday lighting elements to achieve the same thing when we light the tree as part of a holiday outdoor lighting display as well.

Wrapping the branches and limbs of trees that have since lost their foliage in the fall creates a hauntingly beautiful effect.

Remember that trimming the holiday tree does not have to end with your indoor tree(s). There is nothing more gracious or charming than driving up the lane of a residence which is lined with evergreens lit for the season, or seeing that one magnificent majestic cedar all aglow in the front yard of your home.

To give you a little taste of the enchantment you can create in your landscape this season, here is a look into the beautiful world of Nashville holiday tree lighting for the outside of your home.

Nashville TN Christmas tree outdoor lights

This elegant trio of conifers welcomes you as you enter the property of this home. This look was achieved by selecting a trio of evergreens within the homeowner’s landscape and wrapping the trees with white LED strands. We furthered the effect by placing staked lighted LED starbursts around the base of the trees which also complements the rustic rock border along the property line.
