At All Home Living, we believe that lighting is EVERYTHING. Which is why in this article we show you how to choose the right lighting that can make your living space exceptional, from your dining room, bedroom, living room, kitchen, balcony and even your bathroom.
From making your home look cozy, to helping you take beautiful selfies. Lighting makes such a big impact in all we do. For instance, did you know that white light has negative energy and warm light gives off positive vibes?
Imagine a room with only the ceiling lights on, and surrounded by modern pendant light. It is warm lighting, inviting, and won’t disturb your sleep. This type of lighting is known for its soft shine as well as it’s ability to wash any room in a soothing glow. Similar lighting can be used in living room using modern chandeliers or flush mount ceiling light or some beautiful designer pendant lights.
Lighting affects the ambience and mood of any space. Get it right, the entire feel of your interiors will improve. Here’s what the interior design experts at AHL have to say about using lighting to up the WOW factor in your home.
Choose Unique Light Fixtures
Throw everything you ever learned or thought about lighting. With the plethora of lights available in the market and online, you can be as creative as possible. Want to drape your entire bedroom ceiling with fairy lights? Why not? Never want to take down your colourful chamchamati Diwali lights? Don’t!
Want to add a tiered chandelier to your tiny living room? Errr… let me steer you towards something else – the drop lamp. A drop lamp is a decorative light that adds a fancy touch to any living space.

Extraordinary Lighting For Your Office Space
But have you considered a table lamp? And not just any ordinary table lamp. A hand-blown table lamp in unique colours. It’ll help you not strain your eyes when you’re burning the midnight oil trying to finish that urgent presentation. But it’ll also make your office space look homely and pretty.
We suggest the Casamotion Olive Green European Modern Table Lamp. Green soothes the eyes and the soul. It’s a great colour to look at after staring at a computer screen for too long. The unique factor about this lamp is that you can place something inside it. A plant, a photo frame, or any other decorative item. Your colleagues will be so jealous.
Use Lighting To Add Colour
A light fixture in a bright colour in a room that has simple furnishings can make the room come alive. It adds fun and interest to your space. And coloured lights can work wonders when the light’s turned on.
There are lots of ways you can choose coloured lights. You can choose hand-blown lamps that come in a myriad of colours, like the one above. Or you can choose lights that have a coloured casing. You can even match the shades of your lighting to your other decor. Or try a cluster of three to four lights for a beautiful burst of colour in one spot in the room.
The deep blue colour of this Contemporary Revolve Pendant Light will add a luxurious touch to any space. The shape gives it a modern feel while dispersing subtle ambient light. Great for your study area or hung over your dining table.
Make a Bold Statement With Your Lights
The material, texture, colour and size all play a part in how your lighting fits in with the rest of your home decor. A tall floor lamp placed over the sofa in the living room adds elegance. Pendant lights in a unique shape, hanging over your island table makes your kitchen or bar area look uber luxurious.
So when it comes to choosing your lighting, think about making a bold statement. Choose something oversized. Or in a bold colour or in an unusual metal. It can be in one corner of the room or highlighted in a central area. And it doesn’t have to match the rest of the decor. Let it stand out and be the focal point of the room.
