Proper lighting can make or break any space. To create the proper lighting for different spaces, you have to consider how the space is used, e.g. reading vs. entertaining, but also who is going to be using the space, the time of day or night, the focus of the light on art or furniture and yes, whether or not it’s flattering. Dimmers are a must for any overhead lighting in order to change the wattage when you change the activity, and lighting set on timers makes adding drama and effect simple and easy. Adding lower-level ambient lighting softens a space at night, creating intimacy and drawing attention to seating areas. Accent lights and can lights behind floor plants add dramatic shadows and contrast for bargain rates. Softly tinted ambient lighting creates mood and flatters skin, flattering hosts and guests alike!
Hint: Our winter holidays are visually defined by lights, but creating holiday themes can be expensive and time consuming. Candles are the simplest, easiest and most cost effective way to honor a season and create a warm mood to counteract the dark days of winter. Scented candles personalize a space and are easily matched to a season.
