  • HOW TO DECORATE YOUR HOME FOR SUMMER WITH LIGHTING


    The right summer lighting can completely alter the look and feel of a room. Take table lamps, for example. They’re so much more than just practical objects – not only do they serve a functional role in a scheme, they can also be incredibly decorative pieces, and how you use them can make a significant impression on your space. Different shapes, colours and patterns on table lamps can also bring various design elements to your interiors, and here we show you how they can give any room a much-needed boost for summer.

     

    HOW CAN YOU USE COLOURED TABLE LAMPS?

    A coloured table lamp is a great way of introducing a splash of energy. Used against a blank wall, it can create a real impact. Think of it in the same way as a cushion – a block of solid colour that can easily be incorporated into any room, whatever your style.

    The material or texture of the table lamp can also help to create a particular effect: coloured glass becomes semi-opaque when placed in front of a window, metal tole has a slightly faded or dusty finish, and ceramic table lamps have a soft, washed-out tone. Coloured table lamps are an alternative way to continue your colour palette (go for similar or complementary colours) while also incorporating a practical piece into your scheme.

     

     

    WHAT ABOUT PATTERNED TABLE LAMPS?

    With designs ranging from the subtle to the striking, a patterned table lamp is the perfect way to add depth and interest to your scheme. From bold geometric patterns that make a statement, to delicate floral prints, to incredibly detailed hand-painted designs that look like works of art, there is something for everyone.

    If you're cautious when it comes to including colour in your design scheme, adding a patterned table lamp gently introduces this concept with minimal commitment. Patterned table lamps are also a great way of drawing focus in a neutral scheme, but can also be used effectively to unify the colour palette of the space. Mix and match with other home accessories such as rugs, cushions and curtains to create a coherent look.

     

     

    WHAT DO YOU DO WITH ‘SHAPED’ TABLE LAMPS?

    Accessorising your home with table lamps offers the opportunity to be creative, and introducing an interestingly shaped one to your scheme will certainly provide a focal point. Table lamps inspired by nature are perennially popular as they deliver an extra level of detail. Whether a bird, a leaf or a stack of pebbles, their organic forms create striking silhouettes, making them seem more like decorative pieces than everyday table lamps. Choose ones with curved lines or antique finishes to help to soften more modern schemes and balance the traditional and the contemporary.
