Ray of light

Interior lighting is like magic which works wonders to set the right mood in a room.

Placement and type are important aspects of interior design, and they work in conjunction with colour selections, room size, availability of natural light and furniture selection.

Good use of interior  lighting will bring to life the most mundane design schemes. Put together with a great interior and you’ve got the perfect partnership.

The four basic principles of lighting are:

  • General lighting
  • Accent or feature lighting
  • Task lighting
  • Decorative lighting

It is the combination and layering of these four principles within a space that provides the key to successful lighting design.
