I am obsessed with lighting. It plays a huge part making the interior work.
The right scenario must be on your terms. First, let’s talk about the very worst of lighting.
Presenting with my very-worst-schemes.


TOP WORST:


NUMBER ONE.
Central lighting.

As you see it is a basic central lighting top view. Even timeless Foscarini’s Greggs wouldn’t save you from disaster. If you haven’t heard of them click here.
Just sayin’ guys. It’s classic.
PLANwrong lights offAnd what happens when we turn them on?
PLANwrongTadaa.
As you see it is too bright in all the wrong places.
Don’t get me wrong. Central lighting could be good.
Good complement.


NUMBER TWO.
Single optional lighting.

It’s not only boring, it gives  you no room for improvisation. Your only lighting addition being candles. It’s not a church. It’s not medieval any more. Be present. Be fresh.
Give yourself some options.


NUMBER THREE.
Too bright lighting.

On fire
I rest my case. It’s plain wrong. Blinding. Don’t do it to yourself.


NUMBER FOUR.
Too weak lighting.
PLANtoo weak
Insufficient light. Forget late night reading or knitting or whatever gets your juices flowingNada. The only reason it’s that low – you dimmed it down on purpose.


So guys, these were my very worst.
