Architectural lighting, or lighting built into the architecture of a home, has the power to transform a space, adding another facet of design with color, warmth, and ambiance. Take this modern exotic condo in Latvia outfitted entirely with architectural lighting for example:
The lighting built into the recessed ceiling combined with an eye-catching chandelier creates a focal point and adds interest to the room, making it appear taller. Accent lighting bathes the dark-stained hardwood floors with warm light. Together, the lighting sets a comfortable mood that’s perfect for entertaining.
In the kitchen, cool green integrated lighting adds a colorful dimension to the backsplash and glass surfaces, while the pendant lights and undercabinet lighting provide functional task lighting.
Spotlights built into the hallway ceiling draw attention to the artistic metal statue, while setting the scene for what’s inside.
