LIGHT IT UP

Homes+ (Australia) - - ADVERTORIAL -

We catch up with stylist Jackie Brown to find out how to use ac­cent light­ing in your home.

AC­CENT LIGHT­ING adds the per­fect fin­ish­ing touch to any room by high­light­ing in­te­rior fea­tures and dec­o­ra­tive el­e­ments and show­ing them in their best light. By cre­at­ing fo­cal points, con­sid­ered ac­cent light­ing will bring a level of so­phis­ti­ca­tion to any space. Here are three dif­fer­ent types to try.

PEN­DANT FO­CUS

Truly ver­sa­tile, pen­dants can be used in al­most ev­ery room of the house as an eye-catch­ing fea­ture. Use a sin­gle large state­ment light or a row or set of match­ing lights, de­pend­ing on what you’re high­light­ing be­low.

ON DIS­PLAY

Show your art­works and prints off by light­ing them from above. Ded­i­cated pic­ture lights are ideal, but a sin­gle or set of pen­dants can also be used to di­rect at­ten­tion.

SOFT GLOW

Strip lights and down­lights in­stalled along a bulk­head or un­der cab­i­nets and float­ing shelves can light plain walls or workspaces and cre­ate a dra­matic ef­fect in any room.
