Outdoor lighting fixtures

Posted by sbgregg (My Page) on

DH and I are building our first house, and the time has come to select our lighting fixtures. We are pretty set on our indoor fixtures, but outside we are unsure what to do. The exterior of our house is mostly an almond-colored vinyl siding, with white corners. One entire front gable will also have a stone veneer.

What color/texture should we go with for our outdoor lights?? According to our plans, there will be 2 flanking the front door, and another set of 2 flanking our 2-car garage. Any advice on what would coordinate well?

It's hard to say without seeing the house and knowing your tastes, but here are some outdoor lights to browse.

Thanks for the link, there are many lights there that I like. I would post a photo of our exterior, but we're still waiting for the stone to be done, so I don't know how helpful that would be. Any advice on what color to stick with? We were thinking we should probably stay with white, but I love the aged bronze/copper look too.
