  • 1. LIGHTING DESIGNPART 2 Instructor: Deborah Ogden


  • A linear light source concealed on top of a canopy bed gives lovely ambient light without a visible source

3. Hide anambientlighting source above an armoire or bookcase 4.

  • Install lighting in a skylight well--for light that seems to be daylighteven at night!

5. Tray ceilings lend themselves very well to cove lighting details 6.

  • The task lighting illuminates the counters very well
  • The ambient light softly gives another layer to fill in the room

7. Kitchen cove lighting

  • Using cove lighting above a kitchen cabinet, with a fascia and linear light source
  • Here is an example of cove lighting for a kitchen with no open space above the upper cabinets.This is a great ambient lighting solution.

8. Anotherambientlight source idea

  • Lighting inside this light well would be an indirect source, or a type of cove lighting


  • Methods forconcealing linear light sources on open ceiling beams

10. Concealed light sources on top of open beams reflects from the ceiling to create ambient light 11.

  • Ambientlight is best in layers, rather than as a single source, which can be harsh, like this chandelier


  • Here thesconceshelp give ambient light rather than relying only on a full-blast chandelier
  • The chandelier will appear to give most of the light, but can be dimmed, or use smaller bulbs and less harsh glare
  • Light layers are more flexible, and can save energy


  • How to place asconce --


  • A high wall sconce can be a good ambient light source
  • The light can reflect from the ceiling for effective indirect lighting


  • Torchieresoffer the same benefits as sconces for this examplethey provide ambient light that will seem to come from the chandelier, which can be dimmed


  • Here is a dining room using a chandelier along with cove lighting for layeredambientlighting

17. Thisindirectlight pendant is another option forambientlightgiving the same light as a chandelier without glare 18. ACCENT LIGHTING USED FOR DRAMA AND EFFECT TO HIGHLIGHT ART OR TEXTUREFOR UP-LIGHT ON INDOOR PLANTSOR OUTSIDE ON TREES 19. 20.

  • If its not practical to install a ceiling spot, a portable one can be placed on a bookcase or other tall item


  • Accent spots can be attached with a weighted or friction fastener


  • Up-lights in a plant pot (with a stake to hold them in place) are an easy and inexpensive way to get a glamorous look--and dramatic ceiling shadows


  • Placement of an accent spot light is very important
  • This spotlight is directly
  • above the sculpture,
  • and does not illuminate
  • the face


  • This spot has been placed at the correct angle to show the face on the sculpture
  • An adjustable spot gives a little more flexibility


  • Lighting within an enclosed space needs to consider the heat given off by the sourceand check the local code
  • Note the fascia or valance (not valence) to hide source and stop glare
