When I was looking through the Metricon range of homes, they stood out because of the mood lighting. Thats what grabbed me. They looked warm and inviting. Why can't we make our own homes warm and inviting?
Garden lighting feels like a bit of a luxury and quite a bit of work to set it up, but the Jamie Durie range is solar powered so you push them into the ground, charge them up and away they go! Also the prices are really reasonable - under $30 for certain sets and items.
A directional spotlight could be shone up a tree, at the house or into a dark position in an entertainment area.
I am not sure what Jamie Durie's lights look like at night. The picture below is just to inspire.
