Now that the warm weather is finally here, our back patio feels like an extra room because we spend so much time out there. This year I want to add some mood lighting out there using patio lights for those long summer nights. I’ve always loved the globe-style lights, but that isn’t your only option!
A strand of regular Christmas lights looks beautiful around this rustic arbor.
How gorgeous is this patio with the pergola and globe lights?
Dont’ overlook your side yard, it can be usable space. I love how they created a sitting area here in this space. The globe lights set the mood.
If the only outdoor space you have is a small balcony, make the most of it! Isn’t this one amazing?
Bring your patio lights indoors for ambient lighting.
If you have pretty landscaping, add some well-placed lights to highlight it.
The more lights the better.
Keep it simple and wrap a few lights around the gate.
Does your house back up to a wooded area? How cool are these?
As you can see, outdoor lighting can elevate most any space to the next level. Here are some of my favorite patio lights *, click on any photo below for more details!
