Lite4 Outdoor Lighting
The warmth or "color temperature" of the lighting is due to two factors: 1- the warm color of the lamp or bulb (at least 2700 kelvin or warmer). 2nd- is the surface of the wood is a warm, bronze tone which effects the warm "orangey" color tone of the light. Surface color is a big factor in reflected light color.

Coastal Cedar Direct
There is a recommended maintenance schedule for wood siding like this. There are some important steps to take before applying the siding to the substrate. One of these steps is choosing a high quality wood/timber stain. Once the cedar is on the wall, re-coatings and cleanings are done when needed, in some cases years after the original installation.

Back Splash colors - I am doing a kitchen renovation and would like feedback on the back splash. My new kitchen has hazelnut distressed cabinets(so creamy color with yellow undertone) and some scratched edging revealing the wood, plank wood floors, brown antique granite and wheatstone gray paint color via Martha Stewart. I would like to break up the muted aspects of the kitchen by adding either a little color or some texture. Any tile ideas or anything outside of tile. Thanks

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Modern architecture: the most amazing place to play with outdoor lighting. Many overscale outdoor fixtures can actually add to the architectural personality of the home from both close up and far away. For covered spaces, you can never go wrong with a vinyl Nelson saucer pendant.
John Hill added this to Outlooks: Walk Into the View
The overlook in the top-left corner is one of many outdoor spaces integrated into this Hillside House. There are inset balconies, terraces, and even semi-outdoor rooms (the stacked rooms in the photo's middle). The projecting balcony is an extension of a roof terrace. Note how a notch in the solid guardrail one floor below mimics this overlook.
Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: The Language of Walls
In a language of thinness, modulation, and precise structure, wood is used here to delineate the wall as a screening device. By varying the interval of spacing members, solidity transforms into layered openness like a large, fixed Venetian blind.
Ventana Construction LLC added this to Learn the Lingo of Construction Project Costs
Arriving at a cost for a project involves creating plans and specifications, and requires lots of time, thought and shopping. The more detailed the plans are, the more accurate the price. So how do you get the accuracy you need when you ask about price? Start with an understanding of the process and the lingo.

Estimates. At its core, every price a contractor provides is an estimate — of the labor and materials it will take to complete your project. In residential construction, an “estimate” (also known as a bid) generally is not a firm price. Estimates and bids are only as accurate as the information they’re based on. For instance, the least accurate estimate would be one based on square-foot pricing, a range of square-foot pricing or a typical cost for projects of that type. The result won’t tell you what it will cost, but it will tell you if your cost expectations are generally in alignment with the likely price. This level of accuracy also means that you’re likely to get a wide range of estimated costs when you consult with multiple contractors, as each will have a different interpretation of what you have in mind and a different way of creating a ballpark estimate. To use a car analogy: a Honda, BMW and Porsche might be the same size and weigh about the same, but they have very different price tags.
