The comeback

The website Signature Landscapes meanwhile shared some decorating trends, and in its web feature it mentioned that colorful Christmas bulbs are making a comeback. Electrician           

“Over the past several years white (well, technically clear) lights have been the go-to lighting design, but we’re seeing a throwback to traditional multi-colored lights. Run multicolored lights along your home’s fascia or roof edge.  Spruce up shrubs with color blocks of all red or green.  Illuminate walkways and paths with colorful ground lighting. If you’re not ready to go with an all-color lighting scheme; just add a pop of color to a tree or shrub.   You’ll find that colored bulbs are more festive and give your home a custom look.”
