QUICK GUIDE: ROOM LIGHTING
For Melbourne designer Jan Flook, there’s more to lighting than a functional flick of the switch. As a lighting designer, he’s all too aware of what he refers to as our bad habit – overdoing it! Too much lighting is not a great look. So to set us off on the best foot when it comes to thinking about lighting our rooms, Jan shares his quick and easy starter guide.
Think subtle indirect light with a warm colour temperature for this room. Lights that dim are a great option to customise a busy hub.
The heart of the home requires task light that has a good colour render producing light from right across the spectrum.
Opt for moody, soft, warm, diffused lighting, and add bedside directional task lighting that doesn’t affect the person next to you.
I prefer daylight complemented with inspirational light fixtures.
Go for well-designed, ip-rated fixtures that blend wall washing and ambient lighting with decorative accents.
