Transcript of "Bright Ideas for Modern and Contemporary Lighting"

  1. 1. BRIGHT IDEAS FOR MODERN & CONTEMPORARY LIGHTING 201
  2. 2. MODERN OR CONTEMPORARY— 1. Color & Light • Modern home interiors are inspired by Scandinavian and Asian principles. This means streamlined, minimalist looks and calm, neutral colors. • Contemporary design (present day trends) allows for bright color accents and an eclectic mix of themes. • Clear glass fixtures with chrome say “modern industrial,” while brightly colored glass or fabric shades lend a more playful, contemporary feel.
  3. 3. MODERN OR CONTEMPORARY— 2. Materials & Light • For a modern industrial look, mix in metallic finishes like brushed steel or gleaming chrome. • Lighten up a kitchen or bathroom using contemporary accents, like pendants with brightly colored glass shades, for a fun, modern feel. • The newest lighting designs blend past and future. Trade heavy crystal chandeliers for earth-toned jewel-like facets in metallic settings.
  4. 4. CONTEMPORARY LIGHTING TECHNIQUES • Open space, with fewer walls and simpler lines in lighting fixtures and all furnishings make up the contemporary designs. • A neutral palette reinforces the uncluttered feel, using subtle color shadings. • Add interest by mixing different fabrics and shapes to soften geometric lines. Lamp shades are an ideal way to update the modern look with new textures, sizes and shapes.
  5. 5. LIGHTING AS MODERN ART • This artful spiral light fixture dramatically echoes the bold glass sculpture below. • The stark white palette of the foyer, sitting room and staircase forms a perfect backdrop for the main focal points. • Color hint: Global trend forecasters see mauve and orchid accents dominating design in 2014.
  6. 6. LIGHTING CHOICES AS ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES • In a minimalist contemporary space, the light itself is more important than the fixture—some light sources seem invisible. • Recessed lights produce warm ambient lighting and work in many types of rooms, from a kitchen’s drop ceiling to a living room’s soaring cathedral ceiling. • Cove lighting uses tube lights placed in high ledges and crown molding along the tops of walls, creating a warm, diffused upward glow.
  7. 7. SOME RULES ARE MEANT TO BE BROKEN! Open Up the Style Mix • Use the “principle of 3” and group 3 fixtures of different shapes or colors for drama. • Create unexpected contrasts by mixing multiple eras for an original style. • Hint: Be sure there is a common thread that ties the 3 together— try the same color in different shapes, or the same shape in varied sizes, like these pendants hung at different heights.
  8. 8. PLACE LIGHTS IN NEW WAYS • Modern, streamlined wall sconces featuring tinted glass shades, create a color wash across a wall. • Lights in the corners of a small, open room makes the room look larger. • Create drama by using a large statement piece—such as a modern, yet grand, oversized chandelier—in an unexpected location.
