Lucinda’s lighting tips


Our founding director Lucinda Waterhouse talks lighting techniques, tips and her choice of the best lights in town.

Leave no corner in the dark

“Placing a table lamp in a dark corner is a fantastic method to utilise forgotten space and make your room feel larger.  Remember to reflect your style in your style of lamps.”

Set the walls alight:

“Using wall lamps is a great way of achieving a lovely lamp glow without using up precious table space. Wall lamps are also great at lighting up corridors and small spaces.”

Light from above:

“When choosing overhead lighting you must consider both the light it gives off and the appearance of the fixture. Think of the black ceiling lamp as more than just an object that serves a function but as an accessory in itself. You don’t need to have really high ceilings to benefit from ceiling lamps. Adjustable low hanging lights can look great over a dining or billiard table.”

Balancing act:

“They say beauty is in the symmetry and when it comes to lamps we tend to agree. Having a solo lamp can look great but when resting on a mantelpiece, console table or matching side tables, a matching pair of lamps creates the perfect sophisticated finish.”
