The style of the outdoor lighting should be as natural as possible to complement the design of the whole space. Go for models with gentler yet organic designs in warm earthly colors such as brown and green. The rustic lights in the form of lanterns with mock wooden frames are ideal for every yard.
The good news is that the styles today are much more varied than they were in the days of David Copperfield. While old world styles are still very popular, modern designs have taken significant creative leaps, accommodating every home and garden scenario.
The simplest form of a lantern, and most likely the first, is the candle lantern. A candle is placed in a metal box with glass sides and an open top. We all know of the kerosene lantern, also referred to as a hurricane lantern. This type lantern was commonly used from the 19th century into the middle of the 20th century. This lantern, or a version of, is still used by campers and other outdoorsmen. The kerosene lantern is ruggedly built for portability. The metal chimney and side tubes supports the glass globe and enhance the draft of air reaching the flame. Horse drawn carriages, railroad cars and ships were other early uses of the kerosene lantern.
Charles Dickens noted, There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast. Dickens could have been referring to outdoor post lanterns, a staple on the murky streets of London in his day.
