The Home Lighting Effects Bible shows how lighting can transform a home, increase the sense of space, provide practical lighting for working areas and bring warmth, ambience, highlights and drama.

The author provides information on the technical aspects of lighting -- sources, strength, direction, angle, color and control -- for the interior designer and the home owner.

Design topics include:

  • Directional lighting, up-lighting, spotlighting
  • Moveable, recessed, stretch-wire and concealed mountings
  • How to give light depth and character
  • Purpose lighting, such as picture lighting, special effects, task lights and color washes
  • LED and fluorescent bulbs
  • Low-voltage and hard-wired power sources
  • Styles and functions of different types of lighting
  • Finding the right size
  • Working with light color
  • How to choose decorative lighting

The main section of the book is a comprehensive directory that examines, room-by-room, every kind of lighting requirement in a house and recommends the best solutions. With ideas for stairs (and under stairs), nooks and alcoves, wine cellars, media rooms and more, no corner is missed.

A valuable resource for professional and non-professional decorators alike, this practical book is published in a handy format with a concealed wiro-binding that lies flat for easy use.
