Your bedroom is the one place in the house that the ambiance is not about your guests, but about the inhabitant. Bedrooms are personal and we love them to be dramatic, romantic, modern, or a little bit crazy! Whichever is your design style; lighting can set the mood and transform your space instantly once the sun goes down.
Create a mood/theme: In your bedroom decide what type of mood you want to evoke. Whether it’s a romantic feeling with soft incandescent wall sconces besides each side of the bed, or a dramatic approach with an ornate chandelier.
In nurseries and kid’s rooms, remember night lighting: Think about the lighting for when children sleep when planning lighting requirements. Night lights can help small children from being scared, but can also help parents navigate through dark rooms.
Display: Lighting in your bedroom can also be for displaying and highlighting wall artwork, floor sculptures and architectural detailing in your room. Depending on what you’d like to highlight, the lighting should follow the same cue.
These fixtures are subtle and can be directional, and can be connected to dimmer switches to give a range of light from subtly dim to full brightness to illuminate an entire room.
Lighting that looks like a flower, or is made from seagrass and beautifully handcrafted has turned pendant lights into sculptural artisan finds that we love. Try looking in your favorite trendy home décor magazine, pendant lights are now more for show than only producing light.
Beautiful and with an imposing façade, the Cat Mountain Residence, designed by Cornerstone Architects in Austin, Texas, is quite unique, thanks to the special blend of neat contemporary notes in dialogue with the charming antique decorations.
Ambient lighting: Pendant lights can also be used as more of a decorative and artistic way to light a space. Multiple story atriums, foyers, and open spaced rooms maximize the look of pendant lights the most effectively with long and dramatic extension wires.
