LIGHTBULB MOMENTS

Marianne Cotterill rounds up the top lighting buys for your home

Lighting is the most important element in a room; it can make or break the atmosphere. Never accept the fact that by hanging a pendant the lighting in the space will be good enough, many homes are too bright or not bright enough and both are horrible to live in. Ambiance both positive and negative is determined by the lighting in the environment.

With the emergence of so many fabulous lighting options there is no excuse to put up with a cold and uninviting room, it’s important when you walk in that you feel welcome and happy. As Pablo Neruda observed ‘the light wraps you in its mortal flame’.
