Accent Lighting

I love hotels. Most great residential ideas emanate from commercial spaces, especially hotels. These flowers look pretty good in the Mandarin Oriental. The color is really vivid.

Now look up:

The flowers are bathed in halogen light delivered by a simple recessed light...This is very easy to do, btw.

Accent Lighting:

1. Track and recessed are the main products to use.

2. Bulbs are either halogen, low voltage or LED. The Kelvin or color rendering should be between 2700-3200.

3. Do not use incandescent. It renders too yellow.

4. If you are accenting art, use LED exclusively. LED does not project heat and will not discolor your artwork.
