Smart lighting completely changes the aesthetic of your home. Kevin O’Gara, founder of Thou Swell, suggests setting the tone of the room by incorporating LED lighting or smart home light bulbs that allow you to change the ambience. "Every room should have a mix of lighting, including overhead, accent and task lights, so get creative with the mood," says O'Gara.
Nothing creates after-dark ambiance like the warm glow of perfectly balanced lighting. And TimberTech Rail Lighting is the perfect way to bring that light and life to your deck and rail projects.

All lighting options use low voltage LED lights.

Lighting is crucial to the design because the grounds are used just as much — if not more — at nighttime as during the day. LED lights illuminate a series of drums where buffets are laid out on the main terrace, while a series of light-display panels in the wall behind them contain video screens that can mimic fish swimming in the ocean, or other scenes to enliven the background for big gatherings. Steps and pathways glow in the dark, along with intimate living and dining areas. In this respect, designing these spaces with furnishings and light placement required an approach similar to a home’s interior.
