Outdoor lights…

Something that we felt was a must when it came to the planning stages of the build, and the lighting design. And we have decided to go with up/down lights. The splay of light with these works so well in different spaces, and we will have them either side of the front door, as well as something similar at the back of the house too..

And now it is almost time to actually purchase them! Luckily the lead times are okay too, and there is no immediate hurry but it’s always fun light shopping!

Excusing the building site and makeshift drainage at present, the wiring is now in place for the up/down lights!

And the front door isn’t too far away either..it exists now at least ha! But it can’t really be installed until the plastering has begun and the windows on either side can be fitted to the new door frame

Here she is, ready to go! Inchyra blue…our favourite colour!

And as we are going for antique brass “door furniture” it was clear that we needed to go with the same finish when it came to the lights…

Solihull lighting

I love this one, and it’ll tie in so well with the front facade

And now just to decide on the lights at the back of the house…

We will probably go with something along these lines to flow with the front…

…but we did order this one too so we have still yet to decide!

Watch this space for more updates…
