Kim Levell Draws Inspiration From Auroralight’s Luminaires

As a designer for interior and exterior spaces, you have to constantly be on the lookout for what’s new and what’s fresh, but you also need to plan for a style that will withstand the test of time. That is part of what drew Kim Levell to the stunning light fixtures made by Auroralight. As an experienced landscape light manufacturer, we know what it takes to create lights that offer timeless style, elegance, and endurance. Kim Levell recently highlighted Auroralight’s designs in Tampa Magazines. She often works in coastal settings, both inside and outside, and has been “a go-to guest expert on The Nate Berkus Show, Martha Stewart Living Radio, NBC Daytime Tampa, and in publications across the country.”

Landscape Lights Built with Style and Substance

Ms. Levell created her list of favorite things by first summarizing her style goals: bringing together natural and organic elements with sleek aesthetics. Designs that integrate this unique harmony work especially well in coastal settings because they so often nestle among the best of nature.  

There is one specific fixture that caught the attention of Kim Levell, the LPL5-SQR Giza . This fixture is an exceptional addition to our exclusive “Founders Collection.” Its bold, sleek lines make it a perfect fit for nearly any lighting design. Lighting itself is a huge feature in how you set up any space. It’s so near and dear to Kim Levell that she says, “Lighting isn’t just an obsession, I collect it.” It has a transformative power that can really influence the overall ambiance of a room or outdoor area. To help you bring your vision to life, you can opt to integrate a light accessory [text “light accessory” links to: /accessories] or finish [text “finish” links to: /finishes] into your Auroralight product. Our convenient configurator allows you to select what will be compatible with your particular fixture as you customize it to your needs. 

We also believe in engineering lighting fixtures that will last both from an aesthetic point of view and an endurance point of view. There is immense beauty in coastal environments that makes them ideal for some of the most striking designs. However, a coastal environment also brings with it some tough challenges. Salty sea air can erode finishes and ruin decorative elements much faster than in other conditions, so durability is of the utmost importance for an intelligent exterior design. As Ms. Levell notes, the LPL5-SQR Giza is uniquely equipped for this exact obstacle: “This light is made from the highest quality copper and brass which is great when it comes to Tampa Bay’s salt air environments.” 

Auroralight was founded on the belief that quality light fixtures made from quality materials should feature in your landscape lighting for years to come. Tampa Magazines describes it as “the philosophy of modular luminaire design for which the brand has become known.” Our philosophy will drive us into the future as we continue our leadership as an acclaimed landscape light manufacturer.

Auroralight LEDs Bring Residence Into the Future

Time can render some lighting fixtures obsolete. At Auroralight, our goal as an experienced landscape light manufacturer is to produce timeless fixtures that are supported by modern innovations. Our designs are not only aesthetically modern and dynamic but also modular, which makes it easy to maintain our products for years to come. These are precisely the characteristics that made our products the optimal solution for a large-scale project for a home  that sits on two lots in a gated community. 

Renewal with Modern Outdoor Landscape Lighting

The project seemed simple enough. The homeowner was in desperate need of a landscape lighting upgrade after their multitude of trees had matured and tripled in size. Originally, each tree had only one dedicated fixture. That left the property mostly in darkness. The project was given to McKay Landscape Lighting, and the project designer, Andrew Coleman (AJ) quickly ascertained that the best solution would be a full upgrade that included at least two fixtures per tree as well as a transition to LED lamps. 

Auroralight became a clear answer for all the problems presented by this project. Many of our fixtures are compatible with LED lamps, and our product lines include a wide variety of lighting solutions conducive to all kinds of spaces and landscapes. This particular project included spotlights, path and area lighting, and directional lighting to achieve the proper effect. Another key component of this project was the need to light modern sculptures throughout the property, which was again easily handled by our robust product line. 

Ultimately, the designer chose to use our flexible spotlights for two applications. First, they were used to emphasize the roofline of the home so that the architecture was clearly visible. As AJ explains, “The main goal was to highlight the beauty of the home and provide added security at the same time.” Second, the same spotlights were used to illuminate the modern sculptures and play up their unique angles and create interesting shadows. 

For the trees, AJ chose our original and ever-popular SLX16 Mariner. This accent light offers many potential applications, and our Storm Drain™ lens drainage system makes it an ideal choice for use around trees that see a lot of rainfall, dirt, and debris. Finally, the design was finished with our exceptional path lighting that is ideal for use in discreet applications like garden beds and other areas to help illuminate without distracting from the beauty of the landscape itself. 

Of course, the entire project benefitted from the use of LED lamps. They offer a plethora of advantages, including a more sustainable lighting solution, a longer lifespan, improved energy efficiency, and no heat or UV emissions.
