"After previewing some installed Fireflies, we committed to over 50 to be installed in the large live oak trees surrounding our house. The Fireflies add not only soft illumination but a depth and an animated dimension as they gently sway in the slightest breeze.

The effect was even more dramatic as clusters of lights swayed behind obscuring branches creating the Firefly, an effect not available with conventional fixed lighting. We are extremely satisfied with the Fireflies and have had many compliments and inquiries…"

The wind gently sways the firefly lights, which provide a subtle kinetic luminance to the repurposed cellars. It is a magical use of light to transform a utilitarian porch into a memorable destination.

"Kelly Francis took our courtyard of gorgeous ancient live oaks and  transformed it into a lovely night time garden by filling the trees with  soft light and enlivening the whole experience with his floating "firefly lights" (small bulbs on the ends of copper tubes hanging at a  variety of levels from thin discrete wires).


It is enchanting, and  gives us great pleasure everytime the sun goes down.  As an architect,  principal of Lake/Flato Architects,  who works with a lot of talented  consultants, I can certainly tell you that it is a joy working with  Kelly"

"Kelly Francis Illumination did a wonderful job lighting my very dark, dense yard with soft, and well positioned lights. They were able to install the bulbs very high in the trees adding interest to the mature landscape. Kelly is very artistic and easy to work with. The new firefly lights are especially fun!! You won’t be disappointed and your yard will look fabulous!"   

Willis Ponder | Camp Congress Airstream Park

"Kelly Francis Illumination installed Firefly lights at my bed and breakfast in downtown Austin. The product is exceptional! Each Firefly is handmade and of the highest quality. The system has worked flawlessly since installed over a year ago. Placement of lights is important too. Kelly placed the lights in a large Live Oak tree to maximize effect. The lights produce a starry effect at night. During the day the copper tubes add a cool element to the property's atmosphere."

Whitney Smith | Residential Client

"I can't tell you how happy I am when I look at my Firefly lights. They have completed the ethereal feeling of my outdoor room that I had been searching for. The soft moving glow of the Fireflies is a must for any outdoor space."
