Our homes, are a reflection of our personal style which influence our mood, environment and the way our families live. When choosing furniture, décor and accessories we often select pieces that represent our personal style and ensure a comfortable and relaxing space. For new renovations, many of us will browse design magazines, search online and visit shops to ensure we select the right pieces for our homes.
One of the most important choices in new renovations is the style of lighting you choose. Not only will the lighting add a warming & relaxing atmosphere to your space, it will enhance your overall mood and environment.
Any artist or designer will tell you that negative space – visually, sonically or otherwise - is just as important as activity.
Film directors use silence before a moment of drama to intensify a pay-off, musicians will stop the track completely to make its return even more potent, just as painters will use shadows to amplify light; and this is integral to interior design.
Light isn’t purely functional, and those that realise how effective its contrast with darkness can be will open up their spaces and art to another level.

Home Lighting Techniques
Many people underestimate the power of interior lighting in their homes; however, the right lighting has the power to completely transform a space. From home offices to kitchens, interior lighting serves a specific purpose within each room, so it's important to get the lighting right according to each individual room. Additionally, the right lighting can completely set the mood of the room and can complement the rest of the interiors.
Often, one of the most overlooked areas of bedroom interior design is the lighting configuration. People are often under the illusion that, because bedrooms should be a space to inspire sleep, lighting is simply not important. However, this is one of the most important areas of interior design which should never be disregarded. Lighting can turn your space into a truly functional, relaxing room that will be suited to a range of activities. These bedroom lighting ideas will turn even the most dimly-lit room into a cosy, comforting space that you'll never want to leave - especially on those cold winter mornings.
