    A sleek and modern looking hanging outdoor lantern can look great in a classic home. You can create an interesting contrast in styles that looks very chic together. A slimmer and sleeker lamp does not detract from the design aesthetic of an older more ornate home.

  • Stylish Function With Bathroom Mirrors

    • 0 Comments

    Have you ever walked into a bathroom without a mirror? It's weird. Design is about style and function, so don't forget the bathroom mirror!

    Grey bathroom with silver mirror

    You can never go wrong with modern bathroom mirrors, whether you want a design that pops or one that perfectly fits in and almost becomes invisible, like in this space above.

    If you have a space that's big enough, you can include some contrast and add a mirror with a different finish. Notice one of the fun benefits of mirrors is the ability to see the entire room at once...

    If you're already a fan of mirrors and gallery-style walls, try something like this space above. To get this look, keep the lighting simple with a single mini-pendant light.

    This pretty room with all its delicately framed mirrors and white walls... You can't get a more clean look that this.

    Mirrors can make a difference with the interior style besides making it look larger. The bathroom design above leans a little rustic and industrial, but the hanging plant next to the mirrors add a little softness, creating the perfect balance.

  • Stylish & Effective Solar Garden Lights

    • 0 Comments

    Solar garden lights are a trend that just makes sense. The solar power eliminates the need for electricity, making them an option that helps the environment and your wallet. Plus, there is no need for wiring, making installation a snap.

    Landscaped backyard with pathway lit by solar pathway lights

    Take the light out of the box, put it beside your walkway or in your garden, and you're done. Because most solar garden lights have a built-in darkness sensor, you don't even need to think about turning them on and off.

    Even better, solar lights are looking more attractive, shining more brightly, and their run-time is getting longer. 

    Solar lights are a smart choice along a pathway leading up to your home. The Steel Finish Solar LED Landscape Lights above come in a set of 4 to easily illuminate any space. With stakes on the bottom, just stick them in the yard for quick light. Easily movable, they can be adjusted to create the perfect lighting. An auto dusk-to-dawn sensor lets the unit charge all day and light all night. 

    Victorian-style solar post light in backyard

    You may think solar lights only have a modern, space-age design. But if you're looking for a more traditional look, try the Victorian-Style LED Outdoor Lamp Post. This lamp is a great addition to a home or to a public space. Real beveled glass panes add to the late 19th Century appeal. The powder-coated cast-aluminum solar lamp post is weather resistant and won't rust. 
     Solar and LED-powered motion-activated security light

    If you’re looking for added safety and security to your home, the LED and Solar Motion Activated Security Spotlight is perfect. This solar-powered LED motion sensor spotlight automatically turns on at night when motion is detected up to 25 feet away. Its two lights cover a wide area with 4 super-bright LEDs (2 per light head) and can activate up to 300 times for 1 minute at a time on a full charge.

    They are automatically charged by the sun through the included solar panel with no wiring or electrician needed, and you can customize your protection level by modifying sensitivity to motion, distance and darkness, and adjust the length of time the light stays on.

    Adjustable heads let you direct the light where wanted - place it by your front and back doors to alert you to nighttime visitors, unwanted or not. These solar garden lights are great for temporarily illuminating garbage cans and garage doors too.

    Backyard with outdoor kitchen

    Lights like the Copper Plated LED Outdoor Fence Light easily blend with your décor for subtle lighting, and no wires are required, plus the unit fits over standard wood or vinyl posts. Easy installation brings you instant light to dark yards and porches. 

     LED and solar powered traditional style outdoor light

    Replace any outdoor lamp, such as a front door light or garage lamps with the Aurora Black Tri-Mount Solar LED Outdoor Light. It can be mounted on a wall, flat on a pillar or column, or atop a standard 3-inch post.

    For maximum solar gain, the solar cell should face due south and be positioned on an angle so it is perpendicular to the sun. The surface of the solar cell should not be shaded by foliage or structures at any time during the day.
