The seasonal celebrations call for a renewed dÃ©cor without necessarily undertaking a major overhaul of your home. In fact, small changes, like experimenting with focal lights, can go a long way in enhancing and transforming the vibe and ambience of your home. The right lighting not only provides luminosity, but also plays a key role in conveying your dÃ©cor narrative and bringing it to life.
KNOW YOUR LIGHTS
Before you begin, itâs important to acquaint yourself with the different varieties of lights and their unique features to really ascertain the kind that will best suit the requirements of your home. âThere are three very important layers of lightingâ ambient, accent and taskâall of which play crucial roles in a space. Ambient lightingâcoves and indirect lightâis the general lighting that lends overall illumination to a room. Accent lighting or decorative lighting accentuates an accessory or artwork, while task lighting is specific to a room or function that is being performed, for example, in the kitchen or dining room,â elucidates Priyanka Mehra, principal architect, PS Design.
