Lighting selections are an essential piece of the design puzzle in every project. The lighting in a space affects the overall color palette, the mood of the room, and it can be a focal point for making a statement!
Natural light is always preferrable but isn’t necessarily a given in every home or room. You can overcome lighting challenges just by knowing what type of fixture to select for your space. Most rooms rely on a combination of ambient, accent and task lighting for optimal design aesthetic.
Designer tip: for bedside table lamps the shades should not align directly with the headboard height. So take your measurements and plan accordingly!
This week we are simplifying ambient and task lighting: better known as table lamps and floor lamps! These help light dark corners, reading nooks and provide ample light for nightime reading. They can also serve as an added design element with color, pattern or a artistic base!
Designer tip: for greater flexibility in bedroom seating areas combine a floor lamp and small table to reduce your lighting footprint.
Most bedrooms benefit from ambient lighting. A central overhead fixture is often accentuated by bedside lamps and reading nook floor lamps to set a more restful mood.
