a night view

Hello my lovelies, its been a while... and I have so much to say, but simply no time to pen my thoughts. There's a wedding I have to tell you about, a few DIYs and so much more... 

Anyway, for now its the weekend.. and here is how the home looked last night.. I love creating an ambiance with light. Colours, Lights & Ambiance are interchangeable words *wink*

Honestly!! Don’t take the choice of lighting too lightly. Colours create the ambience required, but lighting plays a very important role. Lights have its own effects on the colours used and vice-versa. Bringing in more light saves your home from looking gloomy and dark. But positioning of lights make a huge impact on how a space appears. 

Here are some quick tips to help you :

Light colours reflect light and dark colours absorb light. Therefore, if your wall colours are dark then you require more light in that room. 

A space always looks bigger & brighter when lamps shine upwards or along the walls. 

Light bulbs and candles create a warm glow, halogen lamps and fluorescent lights create a soft ambience. 

White light is beneficial for your study area where you don’t need any ambient lighting. 

Using types of lamps, different shapes of lamps can also create the warmth and desired tone in a room.

We do have lights on the ceiling but only ever use them at dinner time. 

I love fairy lights, twinkling lights and random lights hanging around the house. Do you?

So what do you think? Do you have images of lights in your home? Share these with me on
