The Surprising Beauty of Recessed Lighting

The beauty of recessed lighting is often overlooked in lieu of more dramatic and statement lighting. But there’s something to behold in the simplicity of it. And, these days, modern recessed lighting can be just as dramatic and eye-catching as any other form of lighting. Take a look:

Invisibili 11 Inch Adjustable Square LED Recessed Lighting from Zaneen

I love the seamless look that can only be achieved through modern recessed lighting. It really helps open up a space since they don’t obstruct the view like hanging pendants and lights do sometimes. There’s something so beautiful in having a crisp ceiling.

Nobody ever said recessed lighting had to stay on the ceiling! I love the look of these Orchestra D27/30or Ceiling/Wall Lights lining the walls down this hall. It gives the hallway a modern feel and is a welcomed way of modernizing dark hallways in a post-war cottage like mine.
