Luxury Lighting at Home
Lighting doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to feel luxurious. Understanding luxury lighting principles can help you elevate your space regardless of budget.
The first step in curating a luxurious feeling space is to ascertain your intentions for it. Will this nook hold your favorite reading chair? Will this sofa and accompanying seating provide space for intimate time spent with family and friends? Once you determine the space’s function it will inform your lighting choices.
Taking advantage of natural light is one of the best ways to make your space feel luxurious. Natural light can open up a space tremendously. When struck with the indirect afternoon sun, a room can be transformed to feel more open, airy, and life-giving.
When choosing lighting pieces for a room or space it is important to think about ambient, task, and accent lighting pieces. Ambient lighting pieces, like this Lenis linear pendant from Cerno, offer the perfect pool of light situated above a dining table, bar, or kitchen island. Task lighting choices should be oriented around the activity they will illuminate. For example, a reading nook or chair would be well accompanied by this Mia floor lamp from designer Thomas O’Brien. Finally, accent or mood lighting should complement the already existing pools of light provided by your other pieces. Accent lighting choices are also an excellent means of giving a space personality in subtle ways. The Jemai Lamp from Arteriors is an excellent piece that evokes a sense of whimsy and playfulness, regardless of its placement.
