I’ll let you in on a little secret that designers use to get that photo-ready finish in a home: layers of light. Just like with clothing and accessories in fashion when creating your interior lighting scheme layering your light sources helps create a rich look that highlights great features and eliminates harsh shadowing. To do that you’ll need an approach that combines many different styles of fixtures and sources.
Adding lights as decorative elements helps set a mood in a space. Provided that general lighting is already installed using lights instead of wall art can be a decorative way to provide ambient lighting.
However a grid of pot lights is not all you need for a balanced light scheme. Notice that this space also includes a pendant sconces and art lamps (more on those later) as well as a full wall of windows. Including at least three layers of light from different categories and in different locations eliminates strong shadows and adds a sense of sparkle that allows all the other furnishings to look their best.
