String Lighting creates a festive mood in the seating area
There is an undeniable rhythm to the holiday season. October’s childlike joy of Halloween, November’s Thanksgiving family festivities and the undeniable celebratory feeling of the December holidays. There is the wonderful tradition each year of unpacking our beloved holiday decor, “Hello old friend, it’s been awhile…” But when January rolls around again and the last box is packed and put away, it’s “Goodbye for now…” which can leave your home a feeling a little bare.

But you can put the magic back into your home with outdoor string lights, and the good news is, they never need to get packed away. As anyone familiar with us here at Camelot knows, we have a penchant for making outdoor living spaces which are as much a part of the home, as the interior itself. Aside from creative landscape design and comfortable outdoor furniture, the secret to making an outdoor living space into an enchanted entertainment area is lighting. String lights provide a whimsical feeling that can put the holiday magic back into your home. Whether strung in trees, on the exterior of your home, from poles or on an arbor, they make an ordinary garden look magical. Available in various shapes, sizes and configurations, they are a great way to sprinkle a little light onto your outdoor evening celebration.
Hung directly above an outdoor dining table, twinkle lights can illuminate an evening meal.
Hung in a grid pattern, outdoor string lighting can create the illusion of a courtyard.
There is a saying in home design that lighting is the jewelry of the home, and at Camelot Homes we find this to be true. So much can be done to enhance a space with very little cost or effort just by introducing additional lighting. Be it simple or extraordinary it will bring any area to life, so let there be light!
