Cafe pendant shade in brass from Made £35
With those dark winter evenings beginning to draw in, there’s nothing worse than poor lighting in your home. Familiar complaints that we get from clients are either lighting is too bright or it’s not enough, so they find themselves ferreting around trying to find things! Ultimately lighting is about balance. You need a good mix of ambient, general and accent lights. Simplify that and all it really boils down to is: floor & table lamps equal ambient lighting, perfect for creating a cosy atmosphere on those chilly winter nights. General lighting equals spots/adjustable track lights on your ceiling, great for kitchens where you need to see what you’re doing! And accent lights are really lights that you put in areas you want to draw attention too. You might have a nice print or piece of art on the wall, pop a downlighter or uplighter above or below and voila, there’s your accent light. So if your current lighting situ is a little lack lustre, fear not, House Edit.ie has picked out 9 lights that we think you will love!
