Good lighting can make or break a home in the same way that furnishings and interior decoration can set a style. This magnificent new volume-- with more than 275 full-color photographs and 20 full-color and black-and-white illustrations-- shows readers how to use lighting to maximum effect in every part of the house. From flickering candles to state-of-the-art micro systems, 'Lighting Style' displays a breathtaking range of lighting effects for every room, every mood, and every budget. Kevin McCloud, a shining new talent in interior design, draws upon his extensive theatrical background as he explains the emotional response you can elicit through different lighting schemes as well as offering practical solutions to problems of task lighting-- from areas to read, cook, and work in to mood lighting for the bedroom and night light for parties, ponds, and gardens. Inexpensive materials and a repertoire of imaginative techniques form the basis of McCloud's decorating philosophy, which celebrates fresh new interpretations of traditional styles and encourages all to create their own distinctive interiors. The 'case studies'-- one for each room in the house-- are double-page photographic spreads that include detailed descriptions of how and why each lighting scheme works, with cross-references to the 'Practicalities' section at the back of the book showing readers how to duplicate the desired effect. A photographic glossary of fixtures and fittings, from bulbs and lampshades to wall lights and desk lamps, helps the reader make the best choice from the often bewildering range of products on the market. This section also provides the essential technical know-how, from the fundamentals of wiring to how to brief an electrician. Informed throughout by both the practical lighting expertise and the imaginative design techniques for which Kevin McCloud is renowned, this innovative book will be a revelation of the real potential of good lighting, and will enable you to realize that potential to stunning effect in your own home.
