Here at KLD, we love lighting that makes a statement in a room. It’s one of the elements when designing that is often over-looked, but it’s absolutely at the top of our priority list to make a space feel complete.
Lighting comes in all different shapes and sizes so there’s enough choice to take you where your imagination wants to go. Be a little playful and create a feature like we did in our Ballsbridge Residence with this trumpet inspired pendant light. The brass gives a metallic compliment to that beautiful blue.
Different styles of lighting can instantly change the mood and ambience of a space, so consider this and bulb intensities when decorating. In our Smithfield Residence, we included industrial wall lights, wire lights with Edison bulbs above the dining table and a tripod floor lamp in the corner of the room.
When it comes to design, there’s no set way of doing things, and that’s exactly the beauty of it! Try to think outside the box when it comes to the placement of your lighting fixtures, as we did here in our South Circular Road Residence where we positioned a low hanging Edison bulb light on a low ceiling. This added another dynamic layer to the white subway tiles on the wall.
If you’re revamping an old room, think about what you can keep and give a new lease of life to. We love to mix the old with the new and treasure original features, so in our Ballsbridge Residence, we used a dramatic modern pendant light to hang from a Victorian ceiling rose.
To sum up, have fun with your lighting, be creative and make an impact. The bolder the better we say!
