Outdoor Lighting Gets Modern

Summertime is in full swing; tan lines, ice cream and backyard BBQs are in abundance. As we attempt to squeeze in as many outdoor activites as possible into the next few months, we thought it was the perfect time to get creative with outdoor lighting and bring some unique, contemporary design sense into the backyard.

Go Wireless

If you’ve ever caught yourself dancing around the yard to activate motion sensor lights, LED technology has afforded you a new freedom: rechargeable, portable outdoor lights.

Waterproof, wireless and colorful, Smart & Green offers a wide variety of outdoor lanterns that take on all kinds of geometric shapes. These fixtures can be set to a warm ‘candle’ mode, to a specific color or can continuously fade through an endless amount of colors created by the RGB spectrum!

Perfect for brightening up backyard barbecues and setting a romantic atmosphere poolside; they are designed to thrive in bad weather and have a guaranteed high resistance to shocks.

Bring the Inside, Out

We’re always hearing about how to bring the outdoors into our homes. They tell us,

‘Use potted plants!’

‘Try a throw pillow with a floral pattern!’

To mix things up, the outdoors is now taking cues from their temperature-controlled neighbor.

    LED lights are fantastic, LED’s are great because as is shown in these pictures they can be used inside or outside. They can also save a lot of money on energy bills while still being as bright as normal bulbs. I would recommend LED’s highly.

  6. I love the effect LED has on the possibilities of outdoor applications. A real game changer.
