Hope everyone is well. We’re on a final discussion (Part 3 of 3) about lighting. We’ve previously discussed Ambient/General and Task Lighting. Today, let’s discuss ACCENT Lighting.
Accent Lighting adds drama to a room by creating visual interest. As part of an interior design scheme, it is used to draw the eye to paintings, sculpture, houseplants and other prized possessions/collections. It can also be used to highlight the texture of a brick or stone wall, window treatments or outdoor landscaping.
To be effective, accent lighting requires at least three times as much light on the focal point as the general lighting surrounding it (drama).
Accent lighting is usually provided by recessed and track lighting or wall-mounted picture lights. Below are a few really good examples of ACCENT Lighting.
