Easy Outdoor Mood Lighting
In our last house it was extremely important to us to have a yard space that felt like a romantic retreat…both day and night. It was especially important though, since we have 3 young boys, to have a romantic escape in the evenings that we could retreat to after they went to bed. Que the easy outdoor mood lighting.
Once the lights were installed we decided that it still wasn’t quite the outdoor mood lighting we were looking for. Want to know a secret? The easiest way to set a romantic mood outdoors is to put your outdoor lights on a dimmer.
After we finished this easy DIY outdoor mood lighting project we finally had the exterior romantic retreat we were looking for. We finally had a place to play boardgames, drink a glass of wine, and/or entertain friends. Not only that, but it helped us sell our house for top dollar by adding curb appeal and great ambiance.
