The Messe Frankfurt Light+Building show in Germany is the event where retailers, designers and architects go to view what’s next in the lighting design world. The Trend Forum at the show forecast that one of the next trends for the home will be lighting “infused with allusions of nature: in organic forms, in the spectrum of natural colors and the world of bud, leaf and plant motifs.” Lighting inspired by nature softens the feel of cold, contemporary or bare spaces by adding softer lines and an organic feel to the room.
Measure the extension line of the distance from your ceiling down into the space you’d like to light. Take these measurements into consideration when ordering online or in lighting catalogs. Pendant lights are an affordable way to transform your space and beautifully light your home.
The “Atmosphere” project by ALL in | Studio a small and flexible studio for architecture, interior and product design in Bulgaria- revolves around the concept of LIGHT. According to the project developer, “light influences our well-being, the aesthetic effect and the mood of a room or area.
For large, dramatic artwork consider directional lighting that casts directly on the piece. For sculptural pieces, floor directional lighting aimed up can bring drama and visual interest.
Mix and match color with dark finishes: Another option for achieving great lighting is to play off of adjacent colors to lighten up your dark colored interiors.
Modern and rustic have never worked so well together! A perfect match, indeed! The house’s beauty is influenced by the special lighting system, that adds value to the interior, bringing into the spotlight different artistic objects.
Types of pendant lighting: Just as there are several types of table lamps, so is true for pendant lighting. Fabric pendant lights give off a softer glow, because of the diffused light through the fabric shades.
Use exterior wall sconces for décor: Outdoor lighting doesn’t have to only be utilitarian. Wall sconces can provide washes of light against the exterior walls of your home to create ambiance in the evening hours.
