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.
The light system, in this particular case, is a powerful tool: it generates mystery, making everything look absolutely lovely in nighttime and of course, it create a more spacious environment. The interior is connected to the terrace through a glass wall, favouring a slow transition between the environments.
Whether you are trying to light your cutting surface in your kitchen or you’re trying to beautify your foyer, pendant lights work beautifully. Also, consider using pendant lights in kid’s rooms for their desk area or to illuminate a play area.
Letting natural light into a dark colored room will help the colors read more inviting, and allow you to coordinate shades of dark textiles and finishes with lighter ones. Add sheers or lightweight and light colored drapery at windows to allow natural light to pour in, but to control harsh glares when the sun is bright.
Directional sconces pointing upwards or downwards can focus on architectural elements on your home, and draw attention to exterior niches and plantings around your home.
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.
Blown glass, fabric, and colorful stained-glass effects make pendant lights unique and attractive. In your home, use pendant lights as sculptural artwork and effective ambient lighting, all-in-one.
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.
