Craftsman Outdoor Lighting Adds Charm to Your Home
Are you thinking about adding outdoor lighting to your landscape, or maybe updating your old lighting? Consider combining the old world feel and the bold geometric designs of the craftsman style to create unique outdoor lighting for your home.
The craftsman style started in the late 19th century and is still popular to this day because it features handcrafted accents and warm harmony throughout the home. The style was the opposite of the ornate Victorian era and the craftsman functional elements reflected the desire to create a welcoming, homey aesthetic.
Ceilings were lowered, post and beam architecture was exposed, and warmer dark woods were incorporated into the structure of each room. Lighting is an essential element of this style because the warmly lit windows and porches are meant to draw the eye and cast a welcoming illumination.
Incorporating the ageless beauty of craftsman style into your outdoor lighting adds interest and charm to your house.
Urban Ambiance's outdoor light collections have water glass that creates a warm aura of light in the craftsman style in both wall lights and posts. Complete the look with a harmonizing pendant light hanging above the front door which is a hallmark of this style.
Unique glass epitomizes craftsman lighting and three popular choices are seeded glass, beveled glass, and hammered glass. These specialty glasses gently disperse light and add visual interest to the light fixture.
