As a PR and marketing company specializing in the home industry category, we work with a talented bevy of writers and bloggers who from time-to-time give us a glimpse inside their home projects from the dreamy Thistlewood dining room three ways to the on-going yard-a-palooza transformation project with uber amazing Southern Hospitality’s Rhoda Vickers working with our fav Southern Living Garden Lifestyle Expert Carmen Johnston!
It has been my goal for a long-time for my business partner,Dana Tucker, and I to do the same because we’ve picked up a lot of great, inspiring ideas. You can see a lot of Dana’s cool home projects via her husband’s website Bella Tucker Decorative Finishes which she regularly chronicles. And, I promise, you will be getting tour of Dana’s house soon from our website so stay tuned!
Since 1998, I have been working on top Nashville home projects and tours connecting reporters and now home bloggers toowith great stories custom to their readers’ interests. While digging for these great stories, I found a lot of personal inspiration myself. Today, I want to share one of my favorite things I love about these top-notch houses – landscape lighting!
From the Parade of Homes and Charity Tour of Homes to the Nashville Southern Living Idea House, artistic lighting really makes a big difference in how your home is enjoyed the other 12 hours or so of the day.
We’ve long enjoyed our home backyard lighting, needed for many a pool party! However, the front of our home has been neglected. For our annual Irish Christmas at Blackberry Hollow party, we would drag out a two -socket spotlight for the front of the house and use tons of torches and luminaires which also depended heavily upon a dry evening. (And, the percentage of that happening has been around 10%.)
Recently, we partnered with Life Spark Lighting to add this sort of artistic lighting to the front of our home. I’m so thrilled but it takes someone with a good eye for design to create this type of artistic illumination. Here is the before picture.
Here is a short video explanation with Nik Vierant with Life Spark Lighting outlining some of the advantages and new product technology in outdoor lighting. He had me at never change another light bulb again!
And, here is the after pic.
Living outside Nashville, Tennessee, we are thrilled to have our home illuminated in a very artistic way!
