Lighting

Lighting is a practical and necessary part of home decor. It can add style and flair. But most importantly… it creates atmosphere.

 

Lighting comes into it’s own at night time. Some fixtures are designed to be overlooked unless illuminated, and perhaps, when used for their practical purpose, this could be a sensible choice.

 

But, if you will indulge me a while, let’s think about spaces that use lighting to it’s full advantage.

The bare lightbulb is not exactly what we are talking about here..

But a display of these carbon filament bulbs can create an glamorous, if a little indulgent, feature.

 

Lampshades are truly versatile and can create an array of effects..

Like those stunning examples of restored vintage shades.

Personally, I love maps. Fascinating beyond compare, why not make them easy to view for those who have difficulty with their sight?

Or this display of Muuto shades? Industrial, modern, what’s not to like?

If industrial style is not your thing, let’s talk a little more decadent and indulgent, perhaps?

Lighting can make or break your decor. If, like me, you think it can bring an ethereal and celebratory feel – why not do things in Indian style, honouring Diwali, festival of light?
