Brightening up your space:


When it comes to interior design, lighting is one of the most pivotal elements. The right lighting transforms a space from dull and drab to warm and inviting, sleek and modern, or even opulent and luxurious. This week on Moments, we’ve been exploring how lighting choices (and even the tones of the light itself!) change a bedroom.


Warm lighting is cosy and inviting:

Characterised by a yellowish hue, warm lighting is perfect for creating relaxing spaces. This type of lighting is ideal for living rooms or bedrooms to infuse a sense of warmth and intimacy. Boho rattan lamps, with natural textures and earthy tones, add an organic feel to spaces. They complement warm lighting beautifully.


Cool lighting is modern and minimalist:

In contrast, cool lighting, which emits a bluish-white light, is great for workspaces, kitchens, and bathrooms—where bright and clear light is essential. Cool lighting can also enhance the sleek lines and clean aesthetics of contemporary decor.


Ambient lighting sets a mood:

Serving as a primary source of light in a room, ambient lighting sets the mood. This can be achieved through ceiling-mounted fixtures, chandeliers, or pendant lights. The style of these fixtures plays a significant role in defining the room's character. For instance, a chandelier adds elegance, while a minimalist light channels stylish Scandi vibes. Dimmer switches are a valuable addition, allowing you to adjust the brightness according to the desired ambiance. Industrial lamps, often featuring raw materials like metal and wood, add a rugged and utilitarian charm. These fixtures are perfect for setting an ambient light in spaces that favour a moody feel.


Task lighting creates functional zoning:

The key to effective task lighting is to provide focused illumination without causing glare, in spaces like kitchens and bathrooms. Desk lamps, under-cabinet lights, and adjustable floor lamps are popular options. Chrome lamps, with sleek and shiny finishes, provide focused bright light—ideal for task lighting. Their modern look especially complements contemporary and minimalist interiors.


Accent lighting highlights features and adds drama:

Have a favourite item or spot in your room? Try accent lighting to throw light over specific features within a room, such as artwork, architectural details, or decorative objects. This type of lighting adds depth and drama to a space, especially as it’s reminiscent of museum and art gallery lighting. Traditional black lamps, often featuring classic designs and intricate details, are perfect for adding dramatic accent lighting. They can highlight artwork or architectural features while contributing to a timeless aesthetic.


Lighting is a powerful tool in interior design that can completely transform the style and feel of a room. By carefully choosing and combining different types of lighting and styles of lamps, you can create spaces that are not only functional but also visually stunning and reflective of your personal taste. Whether you’re aiming for a cosy retreat with boho rattan lamps, a modern haven with contemporary fixtures, or an edgy urban space with industrial lamps, right lighting choices can make all the difference. Next time you're looking to refresh your home's decor, start by experimenting with lamps!
