Sometimes lighting is about creating far more than just light.
In Alex and Cathy’s house, I installed two statement piece light fixtures which reflect the sleek and modern style of the home, whilst also playing with the warmth and glamour that is present in the rest of the design.
Above the entrance stairwell, sits a trio of unexpected floating lighting spheres from About Space. Hung at different heights, they can be seen at night from the street through the large feature wall window and bring a sculptural element to the interior. Additionally, the light that they throw into the entrance hallway enhances the shimmer and shine of the textured wallpaper and brings a coziness into what is actually an expansive space.
Above the large kitchen bench, I chose a Custom Lighting large rectangle feature light. Hung also from the ceiling and seemingly suspended mid space, this fitting ties to the lights in the stairwell and gives the space an architectural feel. Its slimline and angular structure frames the island bench and the light it projects accentuates this kitchen as a standout feature of this home.
