Lighting design is all about the strategic placement of light and matching the perfect light source to its intended function. Indirect lighting pulls focus adds texture and layers the sight line.
Bright idea for unexpected lighting: Look for opportunities to install light fixtures in alcoves tray ceilings and wall niches to trace interesting lines. Notice the hidden lights in the ceiling alcove above the cylindrical fireplace mantel here.
Putting a light fixture in a bright hue in an otherwise simple room can add some fun and interest to the space. Colored shades can work wonders especially when the light is turned on.
