Lighting is one of the most important and quickly changing elements in the interior design process.
It can completely transform a space, not just by brightening dark corners, but by affecting our emotions. The right light lifts the mood, inspires and motivates.
There are so many wonderful fixtures to choose from. We thought you might enjoy seeing photos of some of our favorites, from the archives!
When it comes to your home, a place where you likely spend the majority of your free time, lighting can dictate the overall ambiance. It can invigorate the little things, like our morning routines, or the moments we spend with family and friends.
Most spaces have a combination of decorative lighting (chandeliers, pendants, sconces, lamps, etc.) along with architectural lighting (recessed cans, strip and cove lighting).
New products, bulbs and types of lighting are introduced almost daily it seems, and the technology continues to improve. LED lamps with 2700K – 3000K (Kelvin) and high CRI (Color Rendering Index) can efficiently mimic outdated incandescent lamps.
Even with so many great fixtures available, Lucas Eilers Design Associates, L.L.P. enjoys creating unique “one of a kind” lighting for our projects, sometimes starting with vintage fixtures, other times with our imagination.
As a closing remark, we wanted to share with you this link to a wonderful guide that our friends at Circa Lighting have put together. It comes with useful tips on installing different types of lighting.
Let there be excellent, effective and efficient light throughout your home!
