Looking for the perfect lighting for your home? My Design Week gives you unique and luxurious lamps that will bring elegance to your personal space while being unique.
“Lighting is a perfect way to create a wintery feel in any room, just dim the lights and light lots of candles, it really changes the mood and creates a feeling of warmth.” This is one of Kelly Hoppen‘s interior design ideas on facebook this week and My Design Week couldn’t agree more.
Here is our selection of unique luxury lighting design for your dream home by one of the best lighting brands of 2013 – and a interior design trend to follow in 2014 – Delightfull. Take a look, read lighting designer Lucy Martin‘s ideas on the way and enjoy our suggestions.
Lighting idea #1 “Wake up your home with lighting. Ambient, task and ambiance lighting such as wall sconces throughout your home will enlarge your interiors visually and make you want to linger in them longer”.
Lighting idea #2 “The more idea a lighting designer has about finishes, furniture layout, joinery details, and an understanding of how the house will flow, are essentials to getting the lighting as good as it can be. A well lit room is used. A badly lit room is abandoned very early on!”
Lighting idea #3 “Good lighting sets the tone and creates the atmosphere in a room. The key is to understand the use of that room and apply the relevant lighting to ensure it functions well. For example a laundry or utility room will be well served with glare free compact fluorescent, whereas a study will require particular attention to task lighting. An open plan living/dining/kitchen needs to have several different circuits of lighting, perhaps a mix of LED spots and low level floor washers, LED undercupboard task lights, and mains voltage lamp light to create depth and texture in the space.”
Lighting idea #4 “The golden rule of good lighting design is to use the right type of light fitting in the right position. A good rule of thumb is to question the function of every fitting. If it does not have a specific task you should delete it from a scheme. Beware scattering fittings throughout for ‘general infill’. These will light only the floor and visually ‘close a space down’.”
Lighting idea #5 “Directional recessed spot light used correctly to bounce reflected light off walls is the best way to open out a space. Your eye is always drawn to the brightest point thus reflected light will make a small space appear larger.”
Lighting idea #6 “You get what you pay for with light fittings. Get the best you can afford. It really does make a difference to the space that you live in. Your lighting is as important as the structure of your house. If it’s not good, the interior just won’t work however much money you spend on your interior design.”
