Light plays a crucial role in the atmosphere of any space. There is often much more behind sophisticated lighting concepts than is apparent at first glance. Not all light is the same. It has an important influence on our mood, our well-being, and our emotions. That is why it is so vital to give careful thought to the lighting design for your own living spaces. I look forward to helping find the right solutions for you, with creativity!
LIGHTING AT HOME: THE RIGHT DESIGN FOR THE RIGHT ATMOSPHERE
Light carries enormous potential when it comes to design possibilities. It has a crucial influence on how a space will feel. Successful lighting can be anywhere on the spectrum from subtle to salient. This is a great opportunity to let your imagination run wild. With access to the right experience in this craft, you’ll be able to add your own personal touch in any room.
Some situations call for excitement, some call for soothing harmony. The mood in a room is highly influenced by choices such as spots, flowing light, etc. In addition to harmonious ambient lighting, illuminants can be used to give emphasize to a particular design, painting, or architectural form. Similar to the lighting itself, lamps likewise represent a stylish design element of interior decoration.
QUALITY LIGHTING: BALANCE BETWEEN FUNCTIONALITY AND ATMOSPHERE
As an interior designer, I pay attention to the balance needed between aspects of function and atmosphere. Certain areas in a home do, of course, require functional lighting. Dining tables, reading corners, kitchen counter tops do of course need to receive direct light. Yet there are many other areas where an atmosphere will be enriched via indirect lighting. For your custom lighting concept, we’ll sit down together to make sure all of these aspects are taken into account.
ENTIRELY NEW DESIGN POSSIBILITIES ENABLED BY LED
Thanks to modern LED technologies, lighting design is now much freer and offers more independence than when using conventional luminaires. Today, there is a rich spectrum of forms at your disposal. Accordingly, instead of being mere means of illumination, they represent a component within the overall aesthetic concept. A curved LED line can be integrated into a piece of designer furniture, while a line of light over a bookshelf will make a room feel higher. Skillfully placed color accents will also create a beautiful atmosphere in the room.
SMART HOME: MOBILE LIGHTING CONTROL
It is especially for my clients with newly constructed properties that I increasingly find myself creating lighting concepts that integrate smart home technology. The advantage here is that we can give consideration to the appropriate wiring solutions in advance. However, retrofitting in older homes usually doesn’t present any problems. Let’s discuss the possibilities!
You’d like transition to a specific atmosphere at the push of a button, or better yet using a smart device? You’ve just settled in on the sofa for a cozy movie night, but the lighting in the living room is still too bright for the occasion? No problem, you can use an app to transform the room into the ideal home cinema without having to get up from the couch. From right where you are, you’ll be able to dim any lamp or even change the color tone in the lighting. Many customers would also like to have a lighting system that will help to rest at ease while on vacation: Thanks to modern technology, it’s easy to simulate an occupied home even while you’re away.
LIGHTING DESIGN FOR OFFICE BUILDINGS: CONCEPTS FOR ENERGY AND MOTIVATION
Anyone who spends eight hours a day or more in an office will appreciate how important lighting is at the workplace. Having the right light influences productivity and provides a positive atmosphere at work. Yet this planning is about more than merely functional aspects and always needs to account for a sense of well-being through the provision of a pleasant ambiance. I’ll be happy to advise you on the right combination of natural and other light sources for a great work environment.
OUTDOOR LIGHTING: MORE ATMOSPHERE AND SAFETY FOR YOUR HOME
Lighting is also a great way to showcase your home, yard, and garden. Moreover, quality lighting is essential for safety. Wall luminaires set beautiful accents on a facade and provide the right level of basic brightness. Canopy lights and house number lights can also be turned into beautiful design elements. Not only that, they also provide more safety when coming home in the dark and make it easier for delivery or even emergency services to find your address quickly.
OUTDOOR LIGHTING FOR YARD, GARDEN, AND TERRACE
An atmospheric concept for your yard, garden, or terrace can be a great visual enhancement for your home. And not just for the neighbors, but also for yourself. It’s a tremendous feeling to be enjoying a glass of wine in your living room while allowing your gaze to wander over your beautiful outdoor light accents. Now that’s true hygge! Be it lanterns over particularly cozy seats, LED light rails, or recessed terrace luminaires – lighting is a great way to ensure there’ll be a fantastic atmosphere for your evenings. If your terrace receives a good supply of sunshine, then you can also use solar lights to set beautiful accents.
It’s especially advisable for outdoor lighting to consult a specialist to ensure not only the right mood and atmosphere will be achieved, but also the necessary level of safety.
CONSULTING FOR YOUR CUSTOM LIGHTING CONCEPT
As you can see, lighting design is about so much more than just having a nice lamp. As an interior designer, I look forward to working with you to create a lighting concept that is individually tailored to you and your needs. We’ll discuss your habits and your preferences. Of course, it’ll be necessary to learn about you and your lifestyle. Do you like to sleep in total darkness? Do you enjoy reading in bed, or do you prefer a reading chair in the living room?

Then you might be the type who enjoys having classic lamps and several small light sources to give a room the feeling of home and well-being you are looking for.
