Last month we focused on the importance of appropriate lighting in commercial premises, so this month we examine just how important it is to have good interior lighting in the home as well. Proper lighting plays a huge role in the comfort and liveability of any interior space. However, when decorating, most people usually focus on furniture, carpentry and walls, with lighting coming as an afterthought.
Adding ambience with designer lighting and custom made lampshades from Eunice Taylor will enhance your interior space. The use of lighting can add to or subtract from the overall colours of a room or from only those surfaces the light is meant to enhance. The illusion of space is defined by light reflected off the surfaces of the walls. Some types of lighting help with this illusion by further illuminating the walls.
The lighting in a home changes the mood of a room just as it does the perceived size of a room. Placement and type are important aspects of interior design, and the elements that come together when the right lighting is achieved transform a room into a seamless combination of functionality and style.
The lighting in a room either provides illumination for the entirety of the room, or it highlights very specific elements, for example chandeliers. Chandeliers are not only used in large, open foyers, entryways and rooms because of their centrally themed placement, but also because they provide excellent illumination for the room. Wall lights add length and size, visually, to an entryway hall, as well as light the way in passages or corridors.
Eunice Taylor’s AERIN lighting collection with Visual Comfort & Co is inspired by old world glamour and European mid-century design, classic with a modern point of view, and perfect for an elegant lounge or dining room in the home.
