Lighting plays a large role in how a design comes together.
You may have noticed on any interior design show or working with a designer that lighting is one of the most important selections we consider when working with a client.
It is to make a statement, the right lighting can pull everything together to create a balanced and dimensional look.
Here are a few lighting ideas for you to look at.

Play with scale to make a lighting statement.
Sometimes experimenting with scale to make your lighting the focal point of the space makes your space pop. Sometimes throwing out the “rules” when it comes to sizing lends the best results.
Try subtle lighting to accentuate other elements.
Sometimes the best lighting looks are the ones that let other elements in your home stand out. If there’s something you love about the space you’re designing, whether it’s your windows, wall color, or island stain, using a subtle lighting piece that blends into your design can allow the eye to rest on a different visual element.
Add character with unexpected lighting moments.
Layered lighting brings out a thoughtful touch to your home. For example, use sconces to illuminate different areas that may have been looked over otherwise. If you have an empty wall or area that could use some extra sparkle or you want to highlight a detail like art, a built-in, or an architectural feature, adding a sconce can be a great way to do so.
Use lighting to add warmth in cool spaces.
When designing light spaces or spaces that have cooler tones, lighting can be a great way to bring some warmth and draw attention to details including flooring and built-ins to create a more balanced look.
