Long evenings are finally here , and so many of us move outdoors as much as we can to enjoy the rare British summer. When your garden becomes an extension of your living space , you want to feel and look as nice as the inside of your home – and as always it’s the smallest of design touches that can make the biggest difference. If you’re planning on using your garden once the sun has gone down – and really , why wouldn’t you? – then lighting is one of the essentials in your garden design. From strings of light bulbs lighting your entire garden to small intimate lanterns on table tops or pathways – there are so many choices for the summer space you are creating.
The soft warm glow of candles Is hard to beat in the garden , and it’s much more inviting and atmospheric than an electric light. Plus you can always use citronella candles for the added bug-repellent abilities!
It is important to think about what style and material of lantern will fit in with the ambiance of your outdoor space - be it a garden , balcony or porch. A rustic , earthy space would suit wooden lanterns whereas a more modern and contemporary space would benefit from glass lanterns with their clean-edged designs. Another benefit of glass lanterns is they tend to use smokeless and odorless fuel canisters.
Playing with shapes is a great way to add interest , and I love the softly glowing teardrop designs of the wire mesh candle tabletop torch from the Kent Collection. Not only do they look great but will add subtle lighting creating a romantic ambiance for dinners under the stars.
Of course , a traditional hurricane lamp is difficult to beat – it’s a design that hasn’t changed for centuries simply because it’s SO good – all the light , but protected against those annoying gusts of breeze which can extinguish a lesser candle. A lantern set like this allows you to place a dramatic cluster of lighting on your garden dining table – or separate them to use across the patio for a whimsical outdoor backdrop.
If you have larger trees in your back garden , then hanging lanterns are a wonderful way to add atmosphere and height to your outdoor space.
It’s easy to build a dramatic effect with lanterns too – use a larger candle against a wall or solid backdrop for effective dancing shadows – try a patterned design to show a shimmering shadows of light.
