It’s interesting how lighting has the ability to set the mood for any situation.

This holiday season, if you’ve experienced the annual Pioneer Square tree lighting, ZooLights, or the luminescent blocks of Peacock Lane, then you know what we mean. Despite the time of year, Portland is a city of lights, in both interior and exterior settings.

Something that is often overlooked but that we cannot emphasize enough is the lighting of your living space. Proper lighting has the potential to not only change the mood of your space but actually affect its perceived size. In conjunction with color, texture, furniture style and room size, your living space should have a healthy balance of natural and ambient lighting. The following pieces are just a few ways to inspire the way you light your home.
