When our client said they wanted a blend of understated and dramatic lighting for their riverside home, we took a punt and dived straight in! (Oh yes - we went there). They needed subtle mood lighting for their open plan interior, interweaved with focused task lighting. They also required some stunning garden lights to show off their outdoor landscaping. Crack open a cold one now, as we navigate you through the technical bits…
Warm white LEDs, used throughout the client’s gorgeous home, create a soft, welcoming vibe and complement its minimalist feel. A combination of single and double downlights produce targeted lighting. The high-powered Loren downlights by Flexalighting provide the task lighting in the kitchen, while the Uma low level light, also by Flexalighting, illuminates the stairway. In the dining room, a combination of profile with 9.6W LED tape elegantly brings the bespoke shelving to life.
