Triangle of Light

Lighting is a key element in any design, because it adds functionality and sparkle. Here’s an easy tip to create good lighting in a room.

I always like to have a triangle of light. What this means is have three lights/lamps (NOT can/pot/recessed lighting) in a room. When you connect the dots between them they make a triangle. It doesn’t have to be a perfect triangle, it can be elongated – but it must be a triangle. For example, in a living room you may have a sofa with two end tables on either side. Place a lamp on each end table and then place another lamp across from the sofa on another table or use a floor lamp. Now, turn on just two of the lights, step back and look at the room. Now turn on the third lamp and see the difference. Look at how the light aluminates and adds warmth to the room.
