Description

Taking an imaginative and creative look at the potential of creating and using light, Lighting by Design opens a new perspective on outdoor and indoor design. It is designed to make lighting not so much a myth, but an essential part of interior design. It is easy to visualise fabrics from swatches and large samples, but lighting is more complex; we cannot touch or feel it, yet it is all around us and responsible for what we see. One needs to understand light in three dimensions - it's not only important what is lit, but to know where shadows are created. Skilful lighting is the balance between light and shade. Starting with a discussion on the nature of light and the interplay of light and shadow on buildings inside and out, the author inspires with the imaginative creation of light within the home for varying effects from calm softness to theatrical drama. A major part of the book is devoted to outdoor lighting, from entrances and exits, roof terraces and decks to special features such as topiary, swimming pools, water features and statues blending, garden spaces and interior dimension into a unified whole. Specially commissioned photography shows before and after effects and unusual usage of daylight and artificial light to create new moods. Inspirational photographs feature the interiors of respected designers such as Jonathan Reed, Mary Fox Linton, Nina Campbell and Tricia Guild. Further features include use of pattern, focus, using coloured light and provide advice on the best choice of colours to maximise reflection into a space. In the Mood is packed with elegant ideas, superb photographs and imaginative suggestions for creating a dramatic and changing environment. This book adds a whole new dimension to interior design.
