In previous posts, I’ve shown you the Houston Zoo Lights, River Oaks and Tanglewood. Now I’ll show you the lights in the Heights area of Houston.
The homes of River Oaks and Tanglewood are multi-million dollar homes. The homes in the Heights are regular homes in a nice, older part of Houston. In River Oaks and Tanglewood, they hire landscaping companies to do their decorating. In the Heights, it’s mostly done by the homeowners.
I’d like to own a home in the Heights because it is a little like Norman Rockwell’s America. People walk their dogs and push their children around the neighborhoods and everybody knows one another.
I liked the decorating jobs in the Heights because you can tell the homeowners did the work.
This first house looks great with the lower roof covered and the front fence done. I liked the top windows and especially the peace sign in the window. I only wish they had trimmed the top roof.
This house looked very good and symmetrical. I liked the lawn ornaments and the lit columns. It looked like they had the roof trimmed but they weren’t on.
Here’s a good looking home. The roof was trimmed and the lit garland on the top balcony looked nice, as well as the lit garland around the four columns.
I liked this house. They used stars on the trees and had a roof decoration. It would have looked better had they wrapped the two trees with lights though.
This house had plenty of lights and the roof was covered with icicle lighting. It looked really good.
I liked how this house used a lot of lawn ornaments and had plenty of light on them.
I really liked how this house had the lawn trimmed and the roof. Very nice job.
Here’s another house with roof trim lighting and a nicely decorated tree in the front yard. The lit wreaths added a nice touch.
This house could have wrapped the front trees better, but they used the icicle lighting on the roof to give a good look. The porch area had lots of color too.
Here’s a house that had the roof trimmed and lots of lighting in the front of the house. They did have a roof trim light out though.
I included this house because of the unique decorating style. Not my choice, but still a good effort.
This was one of my favorite houses. It had a great wrap-around porch that I could totally see myself sitting on during the summer with a lemonade or iced tea. The trim lights make the job and the lit candy canes looked great.
I liked the large lit wreath on the top of this house.
Here’s a house with colored trim lighting and lots of lawn ornaments. Notice how they used lawn flood lighting to light up their yard decorations.
I liked this house and the icicle lighting from the roof. The hedge and porch looked nice as well.
Here’s a good looking little house with good roof trim lighting and nice hedges. The wreath in the window to the right could have been lit though.
I liked the colored lights this house used for roof trim lighting and on the gate.
This house looked great with the trim lighting and the front porch looked good also. Had they put a lit wreath on the front door, it would have completed the job.
I liked this house and they even had Merry Christmas written in lights on the lawn. The trim lights and the large lit wreath looked very nice.
This house had lots of color and I liked that a lot. They had nice lawn ornaments too.
This house was included because of the different style of decorating. They just wrapped the lights in all directions in the trees and it looked okay after all.
This house had a good feel to it with the lights hanging off of the roof and the columns wrapped.
I liked this house because they went the extra effort to wrap the front tree very well.
This house had the lawn trimmed and the roof as well. It looked very good.
I like when these houses use lots of lawn ornaments like this house. The tree could have been wrapped better though.
Here’s another house with lots of lawn ornaments. The roof could have been trimmed though.
I loved the lit columns at this house, but the top roof needed to be trimmed out though.
This was an Inn in the Heights that had a good decorating job on it. They should have trimmed out the top windows in the front though and hung a lit wreath.
I thought this store looked very nice.
This next house was by far the best decorated home that I photographed. This had to be a professionally done job.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the lights of the Heights and also my other posts from River Oaks and Tanglewood.
