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.
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.
And what happens when we turn them on?
As you see it is too bright in all the wrong places.
Don’t get me wrong. Central lighting could be good.
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.
Too bright lighting.
I rest my case. It’s plain wrong. Blinding. Don’t do it to yourself.
Too weak lighting.
Insufficient light. Forget late night reading or knitting or whatever gets your juices flowing. Nada. The only reason it’s that low – you dimmed it down on purpose.
So guys, these were my very worst.
