With the days getting lighter, which I love, it got me thinking about lighting.
Lighting is one of the easiest peasiet decorating tools around and one of the most transformative things you can do to a place is get the lighting right. Accessorise with more lights than you think you need, floor, table, pendant, wall not to mention a ton of candlelight to ramp up the style ratings!
Don't eliminate shadows (they add intrigue)and don't use low energy bulbs. if you're worried about the whole eco, green, pc thing â do a trade off with something else like not eating meat, or biking instead of driving, or sharing the bath water WHATEVER you need to do! Little pools of soft glow are what we after, vary the heights, vary the style, play around with scale and you will have on your hands one pretty handsome interior as seen below.
Various lamps at various heights are essential, no matter what the paint colour, be that dark, cocooning and beautiful or pale and boring (whoops sorry) I mean pale and simple, lighting is key.
