Layers of light are as important to designing a welcoming outdoor living area as they are to indoor spaces. So, just as you might include recessed overhead lights, lamps and wall sconces in your living room, outdoors you can plan to brighten walls, landscaping elements and even overhead.

Additional fixtures graze the walls, “creating shimmering patterns.” She supplemented with candle lanterns around the perimeter — an easy and affordable option that works in any space, no wiring required.
