Welcoming Warmth

Lighting is a story—and the first page can turn before you even step through the front door. Imagine a perfectly lit pathway leading through a garden, or a porch glowing gold. This is Welcoming Warmth: comforting, illuminating lighting that sets the tone for what’s to come. From path lights along sidewalks, sconces flanking the foyer or a semi-flush fixture in the ceiling center in foyers, this effect turns your home into a welcoming space that says to guests: “Come in and stay a while.”

To accent your landscape, direct light toward an area you’d like to spotlight. For entryways, use pathway lights leading to the door. Never aim landscape lighting in the direction of the door, instead add surface mounted wall lights flanking the door. On porches with a ceiling, flush mounted lighting can create warm, clear light.
