The key to their versatility is utter simplicity.” The geometric trend is a great option if you’re looking to give your space a modern or mid-century vibe.
The designer’s mission was to set three different sets of lightning (three “SCENES”) and show how with one interior and different lighting, you can feel in different ways:
Roly-Poly comes from designer Jung Jae Yup and is one of the most playful lamp design we’ve seen. The project is also known as “Zen”, probably because it takes a strong meditative state for one not to be provoked into playing with this lamp.
Pendants that are for show: Home décor trends have put pendants lights in the forefront of fashion for your home interiors. The fact that pendant lights are often only bought for their aesthetics are not uncommon.
Provide lighting for safety and security on the exterior of your home: Walkways, sidewalks, perimeter of your house, and the front entry should be lit with ambient lighting. Too dim of lighting on the exterior is a welcome sign for intruders.
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.
This technique works especially well in dining rooms, where you can use the chair rail as a decorative area for pictures, collectibles, and colors can be coordinated with seating and dining room table decor.
Glossy ceramic tiled walls, glass shower doors, wall mirrors, and shiny chrome or stainless steel plumbing fixtures can bring sparkle and brighten your dark colored bathroom. If you decide to make all the walls in your bathroom dark, opt for lighter colored flooring, or a lighter colored ceiling to offset the dark walls.
Children’s lighting is important: Your child will enjoy their room more when they have appealing lighting to enjoy their activities. Overhead lighting should be bright, but not directional into their eyes to produce squinting or a glare.
Task lighting: The primary and most widely used purpose of pendant lighting if for illuminating a task area. Whether it is in your kitchen over a bar or kitchen island, or over a work surface-desk area. Pendant lights offer the versatility of being able to see clearly what is at hand for safety and clarity of the task.
If you decide to go all the way dark with the majority of your space, bring in a few light elements to help the room feel balanced instead of gloomy and dark!
Determine what your lighting goals are: Direct or task lighting is focused in the space you are trying to work. Ambient or indirect lighting is used for ambiance and for overall lighting of a space. Once chosen you can begin to choose lighting options. Each room in your home should have a mood you want to set, as well as a function you want your lighting to serve.
While too bright of exterior lighting is costly and disturbing to neighbors. Consider installing flood lights at the exterior corners of your home that are motion activated to further deter intruders. Follow the aesthetics and security lighting of your neighborhood for further guidelines as to what to implement at your own home.
