Where To Position Landscape And Outdoor Wall Lighting

  Where To Position Landscape And Outdoor Wall Lighting

Where To Position Landscape And OutdoorWall Lighting



With the evolution of lighting technology, outdoor lighting has seen its share of breakthroughs. Outdoor lighting is as important as indoor lighting. Lighting up the spaces immediately outside or surrounding our living areas is extremely vital for visual orientation, safety while navigating, and security, as well as for balancing out the indoor ambience.


The outdoor milieu prepares and provides a preview to the life and living style within the four walls. Outdoor lighting is equally important in reflecting the external persona of a structure and its surrounding area. It sets a particular mood and provides a visual treat.


Outdoor lighting presents enormous scope for experimentation. It's a virgin canvas waiting to be colored by unique lighting approaches, ideas and techniques. Outdoor lighting spaces comprise the areas surrounding the structure, pathways, swimming pools or fountains, landscape surrounding the structure, patios, balconies, decks, porches, etc.

There are a variety of options on the market, including low-voltage lighting, flood lights, tree lights, post lights, lanterns, string bulbs for festive occasions, recessed lighting, scoops, pagoda-style louvered faced lights which granite finish that easily blend without door environs, and even solar lights devoid of wires and operating on NiCad batteries.

Various techniques of lighting can be used in outdoor lighting. Spot lighting, which focuses light on architectural features, may be positioned to minimize glare and focus fully on the focal point. Silhouetting is placing the light sources behind the object to bring out the shape of the object rather than the exact color and texture.

Key light or shadowing requires placing the light source directly in front of the object of interest to create a light and shadow effect. Moonlighting requires a fixture to be placed on the trees and aiming it down to provide a natural peaceful moonlit effect.


Deck lighting, grazing (light focuses on the object at a sharp angle) and washing the surface (light focuses on objects at a wider or blunt angle), step lighting, walkway lighting, pond and fountain lighting, and sign lighting are some of the various techniques used for outdoor lighting.

In outdoor lighting, a basic thing that has to be kept in mind is that the lighting fixtures are exposed to all the elements outside. In case of lighting water features, the light source is sometimes from the inside to create a magical glittering and rippling effect.


Therefore, appropriate lighting fixtures and lights should be chosen. Self-lighting kits of low voltage are also available for those who wish to try out their creative lighting talents.

Facial Complexion Powder Recipes - Consuelo Powder And Fairy Powder Recipe - DIY Homemade Natural Remedies





Whenever women fail for congenial topics of dispute they can always fall back on the old topic of the best face-powder.


“I have used that delightful velvety ‘Blush Rose’ for years and years,” says Mrs. Lovely, “and I think it is simply fine.”

Facial Complexion Powder Recipes - Consuelo Powder And Fairy Powder Recipe - DIY Homemade Natural Remedies


“Blush Rose?” shrieks Mrs. Pretty. “Why, I wouldn’t use that for a-an-any-thing! My husband’s brother-in-law, who worked in a drug store, once told me that ‘Blush Rose’ had lead and bismuth and ever so many other dreadful, awful things in it. Now, I dote on ‘Velvety Carnation.’ I know that that is perfectly pure. And it sticks just like your husband’s relatives—simply never lets go!”

“‘Velvety Carnation!'” repeats Mrs. Lovely. “You poor child. I don’t wonder that you have such a time with your skin—” And so on until both charming disputants march airily away, each deciding that the other will soon be in her grave if such foolishness in the choice of a face powder is continued.


Women need not discuss finances or peace policies. They have their own little face-powder question that is good for all time to come, no matter whether we all go and settle in the Philippines or hand these interesting islands back to Spain with a “much-obliged, thank you.” 


Facial Complexion Powder Recipes - Consuelo Powder And Fairy Powder Recipe - DIY Homemade Natural Remedies


I have often thought how thankful we should all be that we are not Dahomey ladies, who have no opportunities for these pleasant little arguments. We may have to put up with a good many discomforts in our life of civilization, but we don’t miss quite everything in the way of joys.


The formula for face powder which I am about to give is not only perfectly harmless, but of exceptional medicinal qualities. 

Nothing is better for an irritated skin than boracic acid, so the girl with facial eruptions can feel perfectly safe in using this powder. 

Oxide of zinc, in the quantity given, can do no possible injury; many of the manufactured preparations being made almost entirely of this ingredient.


Facial Complexion Powder Recipes - Consuelo Powder And Fairy Powder Recipe - DIY Homemade Natural Remedies

Poudre des Fees (Fairy Powder)


  • 1 ounce Lubin’s rice powder.
  • 3 ounces best, purest oxide of zinc.
  • ½ ounce carbonate of magnesia, finely powdered.
  • 20 grains boracic acid.
  • 2 drops attar of rose.

When purchasing your ingredients ask the druggist to powder each separately in a mortar. First put your rice powder through a fine sieve, and then through bolting cloth. 


Do the same thing with the oxide of zinc, the magnesia and the boracic acid before adding them to the rice powder. When all are combined put twice through bolting cloth. 


Facial Complexion Powder Recipes - Consuelo Powder And Fairy Powder Recipe - DIY Homemade Natural Remedies



After each sifting throw away any tiny particles that remain. It is very necessary that all the ingredients be made fine and soft and fluffy. 
Add the oil of rose last. By putting in the tiniest suggestion of finely powdered carmine you can get the cream powder, and by putting in still more you will have the rose or pink tint. 

While blonds, with clear, perfect skins, can use either the white or the pink very nicely, cream is the more acceptable color for brunettes.


Facial Complexion Powder Recipes - Consuelo Powder And Fairy Powder Recipe - DIY Homemade Natural Remedies

Consuelo Powder

  • 5 ounces of talcum.
  • 5 ounces of rice flour.
  • 2½ ounces of the best zinc oxide.
  • 2 drops each of oils of bergamot, ylang-ylang and neroli.

The three main ingredients should be sifted over and over again, and if flesh color is desired, a little carmine must be added, the sifting continuing. Then add the perfumes and sift again, so as to avoid any lumps.

Cucumber Recipe To Get Rid Of Freckles, Sunburn And Tan - DIY Homemade Natural Remedy

Cucumber Recipe To Get Rid Of Freckles, Sunburn And Tan - DIY Homemade Natural Remedy




Tan, like borrowing friends, and various other afflictions, is awfully easy to get, but really more than passing difficult to remove.


It is delightful to sit on a big bowlder that dots a great, lovely, sandy waste and watch your hands gradually turn from their customary whiteness to a deep burnt orange.


One has to have something to show for a trip out of town, one thinks, else the doubting Thomases will arise and give vent to suspicions that one has been merely concealing oneself in an attic or back bedroom.


It is pleasant, too, to go fishing, with a dainty, absurd little hat that, although it looks pretty, is about as useful as would be a beaten biscuit pinned to one’s tresses. You feel your nose becoming unusually warm, and it begins to tingle and smart as if the pores were filling up with hot sand.


All of which is quite in keeping with summer-resort existence, and you are as proud as Lucifer when you trail back to town to show this cerise-tinted evidence of your outing.

But the friends who you thought would envy you giggle and smirk and nudge each other and make suggestions that are supposed to be mirth-compelling. And then and there you decide to do differently next summer.


A sunburned nose may be a treasurable possession away from town, but back among the hosts of the city it is a different matter. More than that, it is an affliction.

If the weeks at the seashore or the lakes would only brown the summer girl it would not matter so much. But instead of making the skin a beautiful, poetical olive tint, it usually turns it to a hue which is best compared to the flaunting colors of the auctioneer’s emblem.


If the girl is reckless, if she runs here and there without a hat, and gives never a moment to the care of her skin, her own mother is not likely to recognize her unless the summer girl soon repents and mends her ways.

What mischief Old Sol cannot do, the brisk winds will contribute. The result is usually a red-eyed, red-nosed, flakey-skinned little woman, whom one would never suspect of having been rollicking through a few weeks of midsummer joys.


If her ears are not blistered, her nose is, and if her complexion is not harsh and rough from lack of care, it is bespeckled with freckles and covered with a deep layer of golden brown tan that has distributed itself like patches on a crazy quilt.

There is not one woman in forty who can afford to ignore the ordinary precautions for preserving her complexion during the summer months.

A parasol is the first necessity. A white gauze veil is another, although this can be dispensed with if the skin is not particularly sensitive to sun and wind. Never, under any circumstances, must you bathe your face in soap and water before going out of door or just after coming in.


This habit will make the freckles pop out in fine order. After coming in from a tramp or a fishing party bathe the face at once in half a cupful of sweet milk in which a pinch of soda has been dissolved.


If this is inconvenient, as it often is when one is a hotel guest and not a cottager, then use a good face cream. Strong soaps containing an excess of alkali are bad enough at any time, but during the hot weather they are particularly trying to almost any skin. Too much care cannot be taken to get proper soaps.

The following sedative lotion applied to the face will prevent its tanning or freckling to any extent, that is, if one takes proper care of one’s skin:



  • Distilled witch hazel, 3 ounces.
  • Prepared cucumber juice, 3 ounces.
  • Rose-water, 1½ ounces.
  • Essence white rose, 1½ ounces.
  • Simple tincture of benzoin, one-half ounce.



After rubbing this into the skin with the finger tips and letting the cuticle absorb it well, apply a pure vegetable powder.

When the face becomes sunburned apply plenty of cold cream. But be sure that it is your own home-made cream, else you may be putting lard or something else on your face, which, in a most amazing short time, will produce a thrifty growth of tiny, fine hairs. And then you will wish you had never lived to see the coming of the “happy summertime.”

Lastly, to remove freckles, quickly apply lemon juice with a camel’s hair complexion brush. Let the juice dry in and massage with creme marquise.
