The Hottest Summer lighting trends for 2016

Mostly in summertime when the sunlight hours are long, lighting and lamps are a definitive feature of interior design summer lighting trends. Did you know that at least three points of lighting in any room are needed to create ambiance?

Of course, different types of lighting create different types of atmospheres… both on and off. The key to decorating with lighting is that your fixture shouldn’t have to be on to shine, so keep this in mind when you’re next shopping for a lighting fixture.

COOL TRENDS

Glass pendant lamps play with the light and giving the room an open, airy feel. Particularly when the glass has a blue, green, grey or pink tinge, glass emits a slight coolness – and so is perfect for naturally light-flooded rooms and warms months. A hint of metallic gives the lighting a designer edge, and works to create a statement.

The stripped-back industrial look works to give a room a cool, uncomplicated edge. The smooth contours and lipped rim of the Tarnby collection cast pure, ample light while the clarity of design will appeal to fans of Danish style. The white variation in particular compliments summery, light décor, invoking images of summer houses by the sea. When paired with light woods and red accents, the Tarnby can also help achieve a summery farmhouse feel.

WARM FEELING

Delicate, more intricate lighting fixtures create a different kind of statement. Lamps made from natural materials like wood are light yet warm, ideal for summer months and perfect for the bedroom and dining areas. The charming look of wood lamps helps to ground interiors, while the cage design of the Pravia breaks the light and casts interesting forms around the room.

Table and floor lamps are also effective in creating atmosphere. A focused spotlight can be both practical and decorative, providing optimal reading conditions as well as emphasising corners of the room for a positive effect on the sense of space.
