Interior Series with Jack Thompson & Co. | 5 Ways to be Playful with Lighting

  • Interior Design
 

Spence Willard are proud to collaborate with
Jack Thompson & Co.,
to bring you the latest interior design ideas, hints & tips

No. 1. Mix old and new

Using some contemporary light fittings in a period setting or vice versa adds depth and a touch of eclecticism to an interior, avoiding the latter to become a tad too themed, contrite or manufactured.

No. 2. Be bold and original in small spaces

Taking risks in your choice of light fittings is a way to add interest and an element of surprise in narrow corridors, stairs and WC’s where furnishing options are very limited.

It can also be a conversation starter with guests!

No. 3. Use wall lights instead of picture lights

Hanging artwork below wall lights can generate a more relaxed and casual feel to an interior and is subtly original.

No. 4.  Have some oversized table lamps with pleated fabric shades

This works in either a period or contemporary scheme and is particularly effective in a dark corner of a room, night or day.

It adds colour, texture and softness as well as contributing to make a scheme feel grounded along with some other oversized items.

No. 5.  Use various types of lights at different heights

In addition to using a dimmer switch and candles, this creates sophisticated pools of pleasing and atmospheric indirect light, making a room feel more spacious in the evening and casting a flattering glow on people.
