31 Days to Decorate Confidently. Day 23: Three Levels of Lighting

There are 3 levels of light that should be used within every room. Lighting is the quickest way to set the mood for a space….

General or Ambient Lighting fills a space and provides overall lighting to a room. Sources include natural light (sunshine), overhead fixtures, large pendants, floods and chandeliers.

Task Lighting is light directed to a specific area for a particular activity such as reading or cooking within a space.

Accent lighting adds beauty, warmth and character to a space and is often used to highlight a specific item or area.

Assignment: Look at the lighting within your home and make sure that within each room you have all 3 layers. Search magazines and the internet for light fixtures to add to your inspiration file.

Have fun!
