Ever walked into an art gallery and wondered how stunning the lighting is in the room. Never overwhelming, subtle yet bright enough to accent the colours and strokes of the artwork.

Now consider interior spaces to be your canvas and how you style and design and the elements you integrate into that space is your artwork. You see, lighting plays an important part in design and showcasing, or accenting your interior creativity. Getting it right can make or break your design space.

There are 3 types of lighting every room needs and knowing what they are and how to make the most of them will add finesse to your interior design.

Ambient Lighting

Pendants, chandeliers or recessed lighting are used to create soft, even light. Using dimmers helps change the mood of the room from harsh and bright to soft and romantic. Employing a qualified electrician to install multiple circuits provides greater freedom in lighting control.

Recommended ambient lighting: Cumulus pendants, AY Illuminate pendants, Klaylife pendants

Task Lighting

Floor lamps - Curious Grace

Used when performing tasks and hence its name. Kitchen pendants that direct light rather than soften. Table and floor lamps in the living and study areas. Creating the perfect shadow-free lighting in bathroom and powder rooms means balancing light from the sides as well as the top of the room.

Recommended task lighting: Normann Copenhagen Bell Pendants (Kitchens), La Lampe Gras (study, bedrooms, workshops, reading areas, and many more), Ding Pedants (Kitchens), and many more table lamps, floor lamps, or wall lamps.

Accent Lighting

La Lampe Gras Nº217 XL - Curious Grace

To accent is to emphasize. Track lighting, table lamps and wall lamps. Use them to accent objects of intrigue, artwork or sculptures.

Recommended accent lighting: La Lampe Gras Nº217 XL part of the La Lampe Gras Lighting Collection
