Lighting is an extremely important part of a design scheme, but it’s often forgotten amongst all the other decisions involved in decorating—colors, furniture styles and materials, for example. Nevertheless, if you want to create a completely beautiful room, lighting must come into play.
As mentioned in the lighting guide posted on Elle Décor’s site, a combination of ambient, task and accent lighting will “create the most effective lighting scheme.” Ambient light covers a large area and is evenly distributed throughout a room. Task lighting shines light on a specific area that, like its name implies, helps you to complete some task. This could be a lamp for reading, for example. Finally, accent lighting highlights an area in a room to add dimension or drama, like with picture lights.
Layering these three types of lighting will give your room that gorgeous glow you’re after. For an array of lighting options in Connecticut, visit Klaff’s.
