Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is in a New Location!

After many happy years at our Houston Street location, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has moved! Just this week, we settled into Nashville outdoor lighting’s new home at 2215 Dunn Ave., Suite B in Nashville.

New OLP Nashville Building

Almost done!

We are still pouring lots of elbow grease and love into making the new spot our own, as you can see through the photos.

As many of you may already know, we were originally called “Lightscapes” and were operating under that name from 1987 until 1999. The birth of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives can be traced back to us, as we were a driving force in the way outdoor lighting was brought to market. By creating a turnkey landscape lighting business which featured the advent of the “night-time demonstration”, we brought the concept of all-inclusive outdoor lighting out of the shadows, away from being “avant garde” and into the mainstream.

Belle Meade architectural LED lighting and tree lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of NashvilleFrom here, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was born. Our objective is to plan, design, and install your outdoor lighting as part of our all-inclusive service, with top-quality fixtures and service. So, even though our building location has changed our commitment to excellence in outdoor lighting has not!

A quality lighting system would not be complete without a worry-free service and maintenance program. We at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives want your home or business to look wonderful five years from now – just like it did the day it was originally installed. We have a dedicated service crew that service, adjust, and consult with all of our current clients and nonclient systems daily.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville Can Upgrade or Expand Your Outdoor Lighting, No Matter Who Installed It!

Brentwood TN architectural lightingWe aren’t persnickety about getting the job done at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville. If you want to upgrade, tweak or expand your existing outdoor lighting system, we are up for the task no matter who installed it—even a competitor’s system! That’s right, other lighting contractors may not want to touch outdoor lighting installed by another company, but that’s only because they don’t have the expertise to do it. They are afraid of what they may find or have to deal with, but our techs have seen it all (and have fixed every imaginable problem we have encountered), so it’s a no-brainer for us!

Brentwood TN architectural lighting

Check out this stately home that we recently took on the challenge of a full architectural and landscape revamp to an existing system. Located in beautiful Brentwood, TN, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville gave this property’s  lighting a whole new jolt of pizzazz by adding more light and giving it a much needed upgrade. As you can see, it has extreme WOW-factor now with a dazzling dance between shadows and light.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is the ONLY outdoor lighting company in our area that is maintaining systems that we installed 25 years ago! We don’t do outdoor lighting as a sideline other types of work. We aren’t gardeners, landscapers, electricians or irrigation companies that dabble in putting a few fixtures in the ground and adding a timer just to make an extra buck–ALL WE DO IS OUTDOOR LIGHTING!

Our lighting designers and architects are specially trained in the art of casting light in a theatrical and exciting manner. We don’t just shove a fixture in the ground without thought of how light can play up every feature of your home and garden. Everything we do carefully planned and poised to showcase a home’s facades, garden paths, decks, water features, pools, patios and more in a romantic wash of light. We are professional, dependable and we only sell American-made systems and fixtures that will stand the test of time.

Huston Station Nashville lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville used special event festoon lighting to add romance to this wedding held inside Huston Station in downtown Nashville.

Garden and walkway lighting safeguards every step your guests take around the property. Whether they are walking around your pool deck, patio, to your home, up or down your steps, etc., we will make their journey from one area to another a safer one.  Additionally, we will make your home, party tent or celebration site easy to find no matter what the hour. We offer orb globes that can be suspended most anywhere in your space or trees that give a cool other-worldly feel that is totally unexpected with their floating effect. Festival style lighting hung above huge spans such as a dance floor, patio or deck allows your wedding or party guests to eat, boogie and simply hang underneath and sophisticated setting.

Nashville outdoor special event lighting

Our customers tell us time and time again how much functional space lighting will reveal. “It’s like that part of my yard didn’t existing at night because it’s not lit up at night”. For an outdoor party, this is an important benefit. You don’t want your guests on top of each other when there’s plenty of room just begging for illumination. Proper lighting can really open up that area for use and allow guests to “spread out in the space” comfortably. Consider an outdoor event under a tent. If only the tented area is illuminated, everyone will stay under the tent. But, perhaps there’s adjacent functional landscape area, or even a gazebo or patio which could double as a dance floor. Lighting extended areas within your landscape will encourage guests to use the areas beyond your primary location adding space to your event location — and mingle!

Don’t Make Lighting Your New Landscape an Afterthought

Nashville backyard lightingDon’t Make Lighting Your New Landscape an Afterthought — Proactive Planning with a New Outdoor Lighting System Makes all the Difference.

If you are planning on building a home, installing landscape or outdoor living space additions or have a property without any outdoor landscape lighting, then we can design a system from scratch and lay everything out. It’s always best to include your outdoor lighting architect in your home-build or landscape renovation projects upfront so that we can work in tandem with your contractor to take advantage of the construction phase. Being proactive can save you money and hassle later when it comes time to determine where power and fixtures need to be if you can if you’ve put it into the plans in advance.

Nashville Outdoor Lighting MaintenanceEven if you don’t plan on putting in outdoor lighting right away, we can install sleeves before your driveways, sidewalks, patios and other structures are poured or built. Sleeves allow wiring to easily be passed through at any time instead of having to dig under existing hardscape like concrete.  It minimizes on mess later in terms of disrupting or moving your plants, shrubs and trees because accessibility is made easy. It also helps in case you have an issue with wiring later on as it can be quickly serviced or replaced through the same sleeve.

Of course, we are always happy to work around your existing home structure and landscaping as well. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville will come in and evaluate your property plot and work around existing structures wherever possible and even dig under them if necessary to get the look you want to achieve–so don’t fret if you forgot to include landscape lighting in your initial plans.

You can consult with one of our outdoor lighting designers and they will ask you questions about your outdoor lifestyle and how you like to dine, play and entertain outside. Not only will we illuminate the façade of your home, entryway and driveway; but we can also add lighting to your backyard so that your deck and patio can handle some serious entertainment and family time. We can give your pool, water features and outdoor living spaces the royal treatment so they can be enjoyed at any hour of the night. If you love lawn games, we can give your family and friends plenty of visibility to toss around the football or enjoy a game of cornhole well into the evening. If late night grilling or cooking in your outdoor kitchen is the standard in your household, we can provide you with task lighting so you can tell when the steaks are done without having to bring them inside to check.

Nashville magical backyard lighting

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville doesn’t slow down during the winter months; in fact, we are busier than ever. The cooler temperatures provide a great time for landscape additions as plants are dormant, and the dark evenings means outdoor lighting is more welcomed than ever. Let’s sit down and discuss designing  the ideal outdoor lighting for your home and property for season after season of enjoyment!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville Partners with Top Landscape Architect, Anne Daigh, to Light Up Edgehill Village

Close up bulb shot for Anne Deigh project

In progress unique lighting installation in Edgehill Village.

We love unique and creative outdoor lighting challenges at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville and this one from our friend, and landscape architect, Anne Daigh is one of our favorites. Anne, who is a talented landscape architect here in Nashville, was looking for a partner to help illuminate a courtyard  located in super trendy Edgehill Village—a vintage industrial building that has been repurposed into cool shops, businesses and restaurants just off Music Row. The location consists of 8 brick building that once house Whiteway Cleaners in the 20’s which have been restored to embrace their historical style and significance.  Anne’s  goal was to illuminate it in a unique way that would inspire patrons and keep them coming back. She approached us with a clever way to light this outdoor area so that it would pay homage to the structure’s history, but also have a retro modern feel at the same time.

The courtyard is partially exposed to the open air, and we wanted to make sure Anne’s vision came to life by tying the indoors and outside together. We used LED dimmable Edison style light bulbs that were customized to nest inside massive metal caged orbs that vary from 18” to 38” in circumference. The orbs are red and bring a fabulous pop of color into this indoor/outdoor space that we suspended with aircraft cables from the exposed metal grid iron work that supports the roof covering the courtyard.

Edgehill Village loves the final result that Anne designed and Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville installed, and we were thrilled to partner with her on illuminating yet another fashionable and trendy corner in the city of Nashville. We love that we have our name stamped all over some of the hippest spots in town like the Country Music Hall of Fame and The Gulch. We are thrilled that building and landscape architects come to us to put the final touch on their masterful creations so that they are showcased to the max in the evening hours. And we are more than happy to make them look good after the sun goes down.

Nashville Post showcases our stunning festival lighitng completed in the Gulch!

Nashville Post

Our permanent festival lighting installation in “the Gulch” recently featured in the Nashville Post.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is super proud to light up the evening sky in many of the most prominent commercial spaces in and around our beloved city.We are humbled and proud to have contributed the outdoor lighting on  venerable landmarks such as the Country Music Hall of Fame, Arrington Vineyards and even lighting up the Christmas tree at the capitol building. It’s a pretty big deal to us that Nashville entrusts us to illuminate these important spaces. The Gulch is one of the hottest parts of town with nifty restaurants, apartments and shopping. Its industrial warehouse look of the past is a big draw for hipsters looking for a cool way to spend some time in Nashville, and there is always a ton of fun that can be had in this part of town. We were honored to be asked to add some evening allure with the addition of overhead permanent festival lighting that casts a  glow in the alleys during the evenings. The Nashville Post recently profiled the Gulch with a great photo that clearly showcases these awesome fixtures that look just as striking during the daylight hours, and they definitely fit into the industrial vibe and perfectly match the brick on the buildings and the concrete walkways.

If you think these overhead festival lights are great, we can also incorporate them into any commercial setting such as over an outdoor restaurant patio for a European café vibe or even the clubhouse pool for a pretty watery sparkle after nightfall. Residential homes can also benefit from the same treatment over a patio, within a covered porch or veranda or even over your outdoor kitchen area for a delightful look that will give you plenty of visibility.

Our festival lights are commercial grade and made in the USA especially for us. They are meant to last season after season and are suspended by a strong wire so they do not sag over time.  We offer clear, white or an array of colors with bulbs, so you can keep the look classic like at The Gulch or jazz things up with a stimulating colorful vibe. Best of all, you can change out the bulbs at any time if you enjoy switching things up during different seasons of the year.
