Aldo Bernardi Outdoor Lighting Creates Curb Appeal And Adds Value To Homes

Ollier Distributors, Inc., exclusive Aldo Bernardi lighting distributor for the USA and Canada, recognizes that outdoor living and lighting is a major shelter industry trend for 2013. Ollier has seen a significant increase in sales of outdoor lighting and lighted trellises this spring from homeowners creating added value by developing their green spaces and patios into outdoor living and dining areas.

According to a poll given to landscape architects specializing in residential design released in February 2013 by the American Society of Landscape Architects, outdoor living spaces received a 94.5 percent rating of very popular with lighting specifically receiving a popularity rating of 95.1 percent. Outdoor lighting is a major component of outdoor living and garden areas and is an essential element in the perceived value and curb appeal of a property. Outdoor lighting can significantly enhance or detract from a property’s first impression – yet it is one of the most cost effective options for homeowners to improve outdoor living areas. “For homeowners looking to add perceived value to their property, the right outdoor lighting can do wonders for a home’s exterior, ” Curb Appeal, Residential Lighting Magazine.

Furthermore, real estate professionals notice that homes that are beautifully landscaped and have quality outdoor lighting (for both home and garden) sell faster and show more often than homes without this type of curb appeal. “Lighting professionals like to say that good exterior home lighting can add up to 20% to the perceived value of a home. And perception can add up to real money.”, RealEstate.msn.com

Outdoor lighting is used to highlight the best features and angles of a home or architectural structure and can transform and add an artistic element to landscaping and outdoor entertaining and living areas. When choosing outdoor lighting it is important to keep in mind the main functions of outdoor lighting – it should add aesthetic appeal, illuminate areas for outdoor living, and provide safety and security features to the property. Aldo Bernardi’s outdoor collection offers lighting that is energy efficient, of the highest quality standards and is designed to add lasting value and beauty to any exterior application for both residential and commercial use.

Introducing Moonlight – A Luxurious New Modern Pendant Light from Aldo Bernardi

Introducing Aldo Bernardi’s New Modern Moonlight Pendant with Luxurious Shades Finished in Precious Metals

MOON3.GF  Moonlight pendant with gold leaf interior finish. 

Aldo Bernardi is known for his rich and rustic living finishes. He is broadening his personal style by bringing a modern, new look to his design repertoire using steel instead of his traditional brass and copper for his Moonlight series of pendants. Moonlight is the first fixture from Aldo Bernardi’s modern body of work to be introduced in 2013.

Three Shade Reflector Options

The Moonlight features a hemispherical aged steel shade coated with a semi-opaque shellac to slow the natural aging process of the finish.  The shade reflector is available finished in silver, gold, or bronze leaf.

Three Shade Sizes

Moonlight is available in three shade diameter sizes  19 1/2″, 28 1/4″ and 35 1/2″.  The overall height of the pendant needs to be specifed at the time the order is placed.

Energy Efficient

Moonlight pendants support energy efficient light bulbs like LED, Fluorescent and Incandescent bulbs with an E26 medium base. As is true with all of Aldo Bernardi’s lighting, each piece is crafted using handmade processes.

As seen in Architectural Digest! 

The Moonlight pendant, MOON2.SF, the medium-sized pendant from the series with a silver leaf shade was featured in Architectural Digest, March 2013, on pg. 52 under Discoveries and online in March’s Most Wanted Home Furnishings and Accessories.

Blue and White : Interior lighting

Why do we love and use blue and white?  It’s a classic combination that has withstood the test of time because it works.  It can look   traditional, modern, relaxing, tranquil, and vibrant based on what shade or tone of blue is paired against white. The Dutch used it in the Delft patterns and it gained popularity with the French in the 18th century, and of course it’s hard to not think of the Greek islands when talking about it.

The Aldo Bernardi lighting collection I Classici in Ceramica contains a selection of handmade ceramic interior light fixtures in blue and white. (All fixtures are also available in white only).  With a range of pendants, sconces, counterweights, and ceiling mounts it makes it easy to create an elegant,  classic, and simple blue and white lighting plan.

Installations: NYC – Hospitality – Sant Ambroeus

by Morgan Sheets

On a recent visit to New York City I stopped by the St. Ambroeus trattoria off of West Fourth Street to see the Aldo Bernardi Cimosa sconces installed.    I didn’t have time to eat there, just to stop by to see the exterior and snap a few photos.   However, there is a nice little write up about the restaurant at NY Mag if you would like to read the reviews.

To see more information on the Cimosa 8520 sconce by Aldo Bernardi please visit our website.
