Design inspiration can be pulled from nearly anywhere–the sources are limitless. The natural world, for example, is a common muse due to its variety and beauty. Being able to harness that inspiration is another matter, though. That’s where artistry and skill merge.
With the festive season just around the corner, many of us will have plans for family and friends to stay with us over the holiday period. With this in mind, how can we make the guest room feel as comfortable and welcoming as possible–simply with a few select lighting choices–so that the space reflects the design of a bedroom within a high end, luxury hotel?
Great design can also be fun and interactive. That’s the contention behind the Spotlight Volumes collection, designed by Lukas Peet for ANDlight. Basically, by mixing and matching the variety of available Spotlight shade shapes and finishes, you can create a fun, custom lighting piece.
The Y team recently took a trip over to Salt Lake City to go behind the scenes with Hammerton, the American lighting manufacturer behind the Hammerton Studio brand. Hammerton lighting incorporates everything from extensive metal design to artisan glass to the most forward-thinking technology.
When it comes to choosing a chandelier for a dining room, you will find that there are a few more unique considerations than when choosing lighting fixtures for other areas of your home.
No longer a small, simple room that is used briefly, the modern bathroom has transformed into a larger, luxurious retreat that serves as a place to relax and unwind as much as it serves daily rituals. But for your bathroom to rightly fulfill its many uses, it is very important to install the correct lighting.
It’s that time of year: the time when the nights are getting longer; the dried, cracking leaves fall dead off the trees which, leafless, look like bones jutting up from the ground; and we hunker down and tell ourselves that noise was just the house settling… I’m sure of it…
There’s no question that art is subjective. After all, just because something is called art doesn’t necessarily mean it has artistic value to all people. In the case of sculptural, well-designed lighting, the lines between what is art and what isn’t can seem blurred further.
Of all the rooms in your home, your bedroom is probably the most sacred to you. Your retreat, your place to relax. So, getting the design just right is essential to make it a comfortable place where you can lay your head down every night. But as the bedroom has evolved into being more than just a place for sleeping, so has the need for the room’s design to evolve alongside with it…including the lighting.
Gone are the days when every piece in bedroom sets, living room furniture and lighting fixture collections all matched in a room. We now know that mixing materials, colors and textures elevates a space’s style and creates a fresh effect.
