For this project, we were able to add lighting elements in phases as various aspects of the landscape and garage/ courtyard construction were completed. This Ladue home, and the grounds, are a beautiful blend of old and new. We were able to come up with creative solutions like running wires through old brick walls and patios or having fixtures painted in custom colors in order to keep them hidden and avoid detracting from the home’s appearance.
Ultimately, each of the lighting design projects we do is a labor of love, a chance to find a unique approach to enhancing your home and landscape’s beauty. For this project, we used second-story lighting, creative fixture placement, and moonlighting (downlighting with fixtures mounted in trees or other high vantage points in order to achieve a natural, moonlight-like effect). The end result is a home that truly shines, from the small design touches like the decorative second-story fencing to the illuminated courtyard area tucked into the home’s backyard.
