LIGHTING IS NOT TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY
“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”
– Leonard Cohen
Did you know that you can have up to 7 different sources of lighting in one room? It all starts with the proper light fixtures. Other light sources are; windows, mirrors, lamps, glass vases, and décor.
Lighting is often the most overlooked feature in a home and it’s usually the last on the shopping list, but we are here to shed some ‘light’ on the importance of this not so little detail!
We love sourcing the perfect light fixtures for clients simply because it completes the look of the home. Lighting works in conjunction with many aspects of each room. It plays a big role in pulling together the color selections, the furniture selections, and the accents.
The way lighting is incorporated into your home defines the mood and adds a sense of elegance and sophistication when it’s well done.
When you are sourcing light fixtures consider the following:
- Match the style of your home. For instance, in a modern home consider fixtures that have a cleaner look with less detail.
- Create a story from room to room by selecting fixtures that complement each other. To simplify, try to stay within the same family of fixtures. For example, if one fixture has a gold detail be sure to find fixtures that have gold detailing (big or small) in the others to create a flow.
- Make sure all light bulbs (that are in light fixtures and lamps) are either warm, or cool. The whole look of a room can be thrown off if one bulb is warm and the other cool.
Without proper lighting the design and décor of a home cannot be enjoyed the way it was intended. Lighting has the ability to balance function and style while offering a warm and inviting atmosphere.
