Forget about the points of light on the ceiling and bring them closer to the ground. More than one and more than two. The more you place, distributed throughout the room, the more welcoming space will be. Low lighting, by contrast, darkens the ceiling and creates a “cave effect” that, far from being uncomfortable, here creates a 100% intimate space.
And don’t be obsessed with coordinating lamps in color or style either. The mixture decorates and gives a personal touch to the environment, as here, where metal, wood, fabric, and fiber coexist in the same space, giving an eclectic, casual, and natural touch.
At this time of year, it is done at night before, which causes us to use more electricity every day. What if this year we light better to control spending and increase taste?
1. LAMPS WITH FABRIC SHADE
The fabric shades filter the light and create a cozy atmosphere. If the fabric has a sand hue, the light is warmer and more pleasant.
2. FIBER LANTERNS
Natural fibers such as rattan, wicker, or bamboo are the order of the day. And the best thing is that they are perfect for giving warmth from the floor to the ceiling. If a fiber lamp seems too much for you, try placing lanterns like the ones in the image in a corner. They will raise the temperature of the room whether they are on or off.
3. MAXILLAMP ON THE TABLE
Now, if you are a declared fan of natural fibers, bet on placing a huge lamp on the dining room table. Place it around if your table is round. Besides, made of natural fiber, the effect will be light even if it is largely thanks to its fabric, which lets light through.
4. NATURAL LIGHT: LOOK FOR IT
When autumn begins, the hours of natural light gradually decrease until winter. Even so, it is advisable to use natural light whenever possible. To do this, place the study tables under a window and let it illuminate the table. In fact, the idea is that the light falls from the opposite side to the one we write so that the shadows do not cover what is being read or written. There is nothing like natural clarity to work comfortably.
5. WELCOME HOME
The light from a fabric lamp on a wooden chest of drawers is unbeatable for giving warmth in the hall. Keep in mind that this room in the house does not usually have natural light, so you will appreciate it whether it is autumn, summer, or winter.
6. LIGHT UP THE HALL
One of the latest trends in lighting is to place led lights in walkways. Whether at the ceiling or floor height, it is very useful (and especially decorative) resource to offer a pleasant light at any time. Now when you get up at night, the light won’t dazzle you. It is a good alternative for houses with children or elderly people, who tend to get up frequently at night.
7. AMBIENT LIGHT IN THE BEDROOM
Bedroom lighting is essential, especially at this time of year when natural light is lacking. In addition to a general light (which will be very useful to collect, clean, and sort) by a ceiling lamp and table lamp to read comfortably, you can place a lantern with a tea candle. It will give a rustic and very personal touch to your nightstand.
