I recently rehabbed my patio, but, as you can see from the above photo, the design is far from complete as I'm missing something quite essential: outdoor lighting! Since dining al fresco is one of my very favorite activities especially on warm SoCal evenings, I'm thinking a lot about the mood outdoors and how I want to light up my outdoor space to make it cozy, warm and inviting.

I want my yard to twinkle! I want something to illuminate my front door and am considering this Toledo Old Silver wall light. Love the vintage look of it and it reminds me of the streets of Florence, Italy where I lived for many years. I also love this Corbett Bangle Modern Gold outdoor light.
I like the idea of making my outdoor space feel like an outdoor living room and I think that the warm glow of the gold would help with that--this Milo Antique Brass one is pretty sexy too. I love post lamps for outdoor spaces too. They remind me of secret gardens and fantastical places. I think that this ornate Bravada Glass Outdoor Post Light would add just the right amount of whimsicality to my yard.
Something low is also key...something that illuminates the succulents and flowers I've spent so much time caring for...for that I'm thinking something modern, and I love the Maxim Marlex Nautical White Small Outdoor Post Light-- It's got those mid-century modern lines that I love.
