To be fair to my last post, I am posting a few pictures ( and ok, yes a couple are my own!) of dining room and kitchen designs where I think the lighting not only complemented the overall aesthetic but provided an important element of drama! I just cannot emphasize enough how important the lighting plan is even BEFORE choosing fixtures. It is one of the first things I assess when looking at new construction plans. Even in remodeling, reworking poorly laid out lighting plans should factor into the budget as importantly as any other design element.
These pix illustrate hanging fixtures; pendants or chandeliers. Next week I will look at sconces and proper sconce height…one of my pet peeves!
( wp acting up and will not let me put hyperlinks into pictures so here are the links I have listed)
