This stunning guide, complete with full-color images and creative ideas, provides all the information necessary to effectively design lighting for any home
Good lighting is essential to a building. An effective design is not just about introducing light into a space, but rather an appreciation of how the space will be used. A good lighting design is so intertwined with the building that it is only noticed in its absence. Written by a leading lighting designer, this essential book explains the basics of how to use light effectively, how to create a beautiful lighting scheme, and how to avoid the pitfalls that occur in most projects. Included is information on lamps and light fittings, and their different uses; advice on controls, plus an overview of the pitfalls of dimming and energy saving; and the principles of lighting design, such as understanding light and shadow. There is also a room-by-room analysis of good lighting design, and instructions on how to prepare a lighting plan for contractors.
