Save your money and get the Home lighting effects bible by Lucy Martin instead. Taking an imaginative and creative look at the potential of creating and using light, Lighting by Design opens a new perspective on outdoor and indoor design It is designed to make lighting not so much a myth, but an essential part of interior design It is easy to visualise fabrics from swatches and large samples, but lighting is complex we cannot touch or feel it, yet it is all around us and responsible for what we see One needs to understand light in three dimensions it s not only important what is lit, but to know where shadows are created Skilful lighting is the balance between light and shade Starting with a discussion on the nature of light and the interplay of light and shadow on buildings inside and out, the author inspires with the imaginative creation of light within the home for varying effects from calm softness to theatrical drama A major part of the book is devoted to outdoor lighting, from entrances and exits, roof terraces and decks to special features such as topiary, swimming pools, water features and statues blending, garden spaces and interior dimension into a unified whole Specially commissioned photography shows before and after effects and unusual usage of daylight and artificial light to create new moods Inspirational photographs feature the interiors of respected designers such as Jonathan Reed, Mary Fox Linton, Nina Campbell and Tricia Guild Further features include use of pattern, focus, using coloured light and provide advice on the best choice of colours to maximise reflection into a space In the Mood is packed with elegant ideas, superb photographs and imaginative suggestions for creating a dramatic and changing environment This book adds a whole new dimension to interior design Great book with lots of design ideas for different areas in the house You cnn find lots of inspiration here. Great book, very helpful for my degree course I am a trained architect and have read through most of the books on lighting design available This is the book to buy In fact it is the ONLY book worth buying There is a great need for this type of information Sally Storey knows her topic and delivers words and images to give structure to thought Be forewarned there are no formulas here Just good sound advice on how to map your own course into the enigmatic topic of lighting design. The book arrived unbelievably fast it was just not exactly what I was looking for I want details not just pictures and ideas.
