Artistic Art Lighting

Their are many different techniques for lighting art and thousands of fixtures to choose from. That’s just the beginning once you decide what fixture is most appealing ,whether it’s track lighting, recessed lighting,mono points, or floor lamps.

Very few styles and base options , that is the hard part. You need to ask yourself what degree of lamp will better suite the art, also the color temperature very important. This makes all the difference in the art lighting world.Please remember you DO NOT want flashy lighting, the more your art lighting blends into the environment of your home the better, because we are “Lighting the art not ARTING the LIGHT”.

Don’t be afraid of adding multiple switches for different pieces, we call them scenes. You can give each piece of art its own scene really gives depth to your collection.These lighting tips will bring your art whether glass, sculpture,painting, etc…to LIFE !!!!

Is Lighting Really Important?

I’ll let you be the judge of that …..Lets take a look at some before and after photos of a Quatro Lighting designs & Install.

Before : This client wanted to make a statement in this open area of her condo, she felt that something was missing. After picking a Chandelier that apeeled to her we moved foward with the install..

During: How it was made unique!!! WOW thats a big hole for that fixture.

Magic: The best part of a small project like this one is the reaction of the client, and the look on their face when they see the finished product for the first time.

Ok I can see that some of you will question why I used all daytime pictures, since this post pertains to lighting here’s why. You see although this fixture looks great at night, and illuminates the area very well(of course it is on a dimmer to set the mood), I wanted you to see how choosing the right light fixture can make a statment¬† day or night.
