Home Lighting Control, Holiday Party Style
Set the tone of the party with the right lighting
With Thanksgiving and all the winter holidays around the corner, now’s the perfect time to work with a Lutron-certified home lighting control installer that can jazz up your Wayzata, MN, home for the festivities ahead. If you’re about to entertain, your goal is to provide a best-in-class guest experience. What better way than lighting your home with the season in mind? With the right design strategy, expert installation help and some tools from Lutron, you’ll turn your home into the holiday hangout everyone talks about next year.
Warmth, Food and Family
On Thanksgiving, warm lighting that reflects gratitude will serve the desired mood. It goes without saying that waiting several hours and smelling food cooking in your oven might spike your appetite, but it also turns out that certain colors promote feelings of friendliness, well-being and even hunger. Studies have shown a strong correlation between warm colors like red and yellow and increased food intake, so indulge in a second serving with family within your well-lit home. Indoor lighting doesn’t paint the whole picture during such a vibrant season: keep up the harvest cheer while enhancing the gorgeous Minnesota foliage (and snow) with outdoor lighting controls.
Making the Season Bright
Bring on the holiday cheer with fun lighting displays and lighting controls powered by Lutron! You can automate your holiday lights using a central control system through RadioRa 2, a popular choice for controlling indoor and outdoor lighting. Do you remember the old days of crawling under the scratchy tree to turn your lights off and on before and after work? How about walking outside late at night to switch the lights off? Lutron technology will make this old method feel obsolete, since one click controls your holiday lights and keeps you out of the cold.
Setting the mood can be so much fun around Halloween because it’s the time of year when it’s culturally acceptable to embrace our darker, more sinister side. Why not play up the mystique by closing the blinds, turning on some spooky side effects and enjoying the longer nights? You can even add allure to your walkways with Halloween colors or make them flash when guests arrive.

For Halloween, a bright and airy affair just won’t suffice. If your party’s planned earlier in the evening, use Lutron shades to shut out most of the light and spook your guests. With Lutron’s Sivoia QS home lighting control, you can manipulate the wide variety of motorized Lutron shades. For an even moodier ambiance, simultaneously dim all the lights in the house and then turn up the sound effects with a Pico one-touch remote!
As you see, you can use fun, home control automation techniques to ensure a fun, festive holiday experience for your guests -- from Halloween to New Year’s Eve. You still have time to contact a Lutron representative regarding your home lighting technology needs, so take this chance to prep your home for the fall and winter holidays.
