What Houzz contributors are saying:
Accent lighting. Accent lighting is the use of a small fixture to light up a specific element, such as a house number, tree or steps. Accent lighting can also be called highlighting. Accent lighting is best for lighting up something dominant that you want to highlight. It can be a sculpture, tree, boulder or anything else that you want to point out in your garden.Pictured here is a sculptural pine tree whose trunk and branches are illuminated by a “bullet,” a small fixture that points accentuated light. The light is placed on the ground and pointed upward into the small ornamental tree’s canopy to illuminate the branches vividly.
