Proper lighting is essential to good design. It’s what makes every interior come alive. Just ask award-winning interior designer and fellow Atlantan, William Peace, ASID.
Obviously, lighting is a pretty important factor in every room. But we say the bathroom is where lighting matters most. After all, it’s where you apply your makeup and where he shaves. It’s also where you see yourself in the mirror every morning and again in the evening before bedtime. At the sake of sounding vain, don’t you want that image to be its best? Well, then you really need the right lighting.
Often, the trick to good interior design is about sizing up your choices and less about the decoration of the piece. This is especially important when selecting a chandelier for your dining room. Even the most fabulous chandelier, if too large, will simply overwhelm the room.
Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It should be inviting and restful, a quiet retreat at the end of a long day. Lighting is an essential part of achieving that Zen-like atmosphere. You probably use your bedroom for lounging, reading, working on your laptop and, of course, getting dressed. Creating multiple layers of light can help you accomplish specific tasks while softly illuminating the entire space.
One thing in design we can’t live without – good lighting. It’s one of the most important elements in design, and yet most homes are either under-lit or you can use their space as a landing strip for an airplane. We would like to give you some simple ways to figure out not only how much light a room needs but what type of lighting you need.
Picking the perfect shade is a lot like choosing the right jewelry – it has to fit the place and occasion, complement without overwhelming, and draw just enough attention to be noticed. And if you put it on and it doesn’t make your heart beat a little faster, keep looking. There’s something better.
