There was an existing outdoor high volt gfic next to the tree and we hardwired the lights to that power source. It was operated by a timer with a photocell.

Thanks for your question! The color palate was set by the Pasadena Showcase House of Design and consisted of a range of blue greens and spices. Dunn-Edwards supplied the paints for the home - the exterior color paint palate included: DEW322 Magnolia, DEA155 Arabian Red, DE5355 Fortune Cookie, DEA161 Wild Mustang, DE5747 Stone Bridge, DE6091 Red Hook, and DEA187 Black.

The tile that the furniture sets on is Saltillo tile w/ a colored stain to match the old existing saltillo that surrounds the home in particular areas.

These lanterns are by Cisco Homes in Los Angeles. They have numerous locations. They are set up special here for outdoor use and would require retrofitting.

Do those tiles become hot in the sun or slippery when wet? - I want to put tile on an outdoor porch but it has not protection from the sun. Because we come up from the beach, I want to make sure bare feet can walk on the tile. Thank you

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Hanging lights from trees gives a sense of enclosure to a space and gives a more indoor feeling to an outdoor area. Hanging glass fixtures outdoors is a bold move but makes such a beautiful statement.
A note on extra outlets. Having adequate exterior outlets is a must for hanging string lights, lanterns and more (unless they're solar powered). Make the investment in exterior outlets instead of running cords through a cracked window — not only will your home be safer, but you'll be able to choose exactly where you want the outlets to go.Good to know: If you live in an older house, your exterior outlets might not have up-to-date safety features, so consider having them upgraded. All exterior electrical outlets should have a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) and a weatherproof box cover to keep the outlet protected.
