Spring fever: a feeling of often restless excitement or exuberance coinciding with the onset of warmer spring weather. Can you relate to this unquiet condition? Don’t you feel like spreading your arms and move to your backyard? Aren’t your feet itchy? Spring came and brought the urge to be outdoors with her. Provided that the weather is merciful and global warming does not bestow us with rainy Spring afternoons, families can start planting flowers, varnishing outdoor furniture, sweeping the porches and changing the bulbs of their outdoor lamps. If you yearn for an extreme makeover to your backyard and do not know what to do to make it look cozier or more sophisticated, here are our outdoor lighting suggestions according to the Spring outdoor trends for 2017!
don’t miss out on: The ultimate lighting designs for reading addicts
It it that time of the year when furniture designers and companies release their trend reports, gathering and presenting the market and style trends for the 2017 season. As we do not want you to be left behind when it comes to design and decor trends, we have carefully analyzed the report and came up with some wonderful outdoor lighting ideas for you to update your garden or backyard.
Some designs never go out of fashion. They are elegant and inventive, refreshing and always with a sense of familiarity. That is what timeless means: something that is not shackled to chronology, hence being reminiscent of the past while never turning out of date. These designs are carefully created, bearing in mind simplicity, clarity and the appropriate materials. Conventional materials — glass, steel, marble, teak or wood —, pastel earthly color — avocado, sage, oxblood red —, simplified sets of tables and chairs. Afterwards, you only have to choose a classical outdoor lighting fixture that is both powerful and discreet. Our suggestion is a uncluttered chandelier, such as the Wright linear suspension lamp, designed by Kichler.
Do not think you are out of your head — and also out of fashion — if you do not like clean minimalist design. Fortunately, there are several style trends each year, so some will definitively fit you. Modern design, revered by its fearlessness, is always a beloved trend. It allows for spirited colors and playful shapes. It is like a bright light amidst a dim room. And, in this particular case, we talk specifically of lighting fixtures. The Anglepoise Original 1227 Giant Outdoor Wall Lamp is one enormous bright light. The first Anglepoise original was a smaller table lamp, designed in 1932 by George Cawardine. The design has come a long way and, now, the giant outdoor lamp is the epithet of the evolution of modern design. Color options include marine blue, crimson red, citrus yellow, moon grey, vibrant magenta, satin linen white, among others.
2017 interior design trends also foresee a cosmopolitan wave in decor. This trend is inspired by traveling and the acquaintance of different cultures, with a taste for artisan work. Westerners usually tend to decorate they home mimicking the Arabic or Oriental cultures. Embroidered chairs, native patterns, jewel tones, various textures and textiles. If you are looking for a refined but not too drastic change of heart, we suggest a Moroccan-style outdoor lamp. This sort of outdoor lighting will most definitively illuminate your garden, whether you place it on a patio or hedging a walkway, granting your outdoor space a dash of Arabic oasis.
There is always a more natural trend to balance the industrial and sophistication of others. In 2017, the coastal and garden ambiances have inspired the decor trends, bringing hues of green and blue back to the outdoor design. Indigos, denims, aquas combined with sages, avocados and pines. The abstract patterns of textile resemble natural textures and the color palette is discreet and serene. This earthly trend, more connected with nature, vegetation and the sea, easily associate with a more rustic style. Therefore, our final recommendation regarding outdoor lighting is the Sawyer outdoor chandelier, by Hinkley Lighting. The steel frame encases three square-shaped glass shades, each revealing an antique reproduction bulb. Geometric with a twist of retro, the translucent glass shades create an intriguing sense of depth that keeps the fixture minimal while still being compelling and unique.
