Because well-designed lighting sets up a warm and welcoming atmosphere, intensifying colors, shapes, and forms, it’s fundamental to any interior design scheme. From delicately glowing 1920’s-style lamps to ultramodern, high-tech tracking, this inspiring visual catalogue will enlighten you on many ways to make your home shine. An introduction to the four major lighting types–ambient, accent, task, and decorative–is the starting point for developing an effective style for every room, as well as for the garden. Make use of halogen uplighters and downlighters to illuminate a large space and to focus attention on a painting. A witty, contemporary take on a dining room chandelier features multiple low-voltage capsules. Scented candles add perfume and romance to a bedroom. And the mixture of several light sources with foliage can make an outdoor passageway absolutely magical. The practical information is invaluable in helping you select from the diverse array of available lighting…and the stunning photographs are inspirational! 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 11.
