GOOD LIGHTING IS SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST BRIGHTENING A ROOM— DESIGN INTERVENTION SHARES THE MANY WAYS IT CAN ELEVATE YOUR INTERIOR SCHEME
Like a skilled makeup artist highlighting and shading the contours of a face, Design Intervention works with a palette of tools to create the perfect glow in any int erior space. For the award-winning firm, lighting plays a vital role in the ambience of a room and so its team of designers treat it with utmost care. “Lighting is like fairy dust,” says Nikki Hunt, principal of Design Intervention. “Sprinkle it just right and you can make magic.”
According to Design Intervention, there is so much more to successful lighting than choosing some pretty lamps and fixtures. “Good lighting is all about the contrast between light and shadow,” she says. “Deciding what you are going to leave in the shade is just as important as what you highlight.” The practice is a strong advocate of considering lighting from the early beginnings of a project. “The ideal time to consider the lighting plan is at the start of a renovation project, thereby ensuring that the focus is where it is needed,” says Hunt.
