Music is not the only thing to soothe the savage beast – because so does incandescent lighting. With this home, you’ll notice primarily warm and gentle incandescence floating through and man is it calming! To maintain sufficient levels of illumination, it’s important to mix and match; here we have track lighting, oversized lamps, recessed ceiling lights and under cabinet bar lights.

We like how lighting in this home is used to emphasise character and personality. Consider the way art pieces in this home have track spotlights dramatically positioned upon it. It’s a unique way of directing attention to focal points that are dear to you. The rest of the lighting is ambient as it incorporates recessed fittings and handsome pendant fixtures.
