Color and Lighting
Color and Lighting are Related
In this video, interior designer, Eliza discussed how varying lighting has an impact on how we see colors. Lighting is measured in a variety of temperatures. Generally, we prefer to use a warmer toned bulb which emits a more white or even yellow type glow. Other bulbs, particularly LEDs emit a more blue toned light. This range of temperature directly impacts how our eyes view the colors in a room.
Can’t listen right now? Here’s what Eliza had to say below:
Hey guys, the is Eliza from Lisa Scheff Designs. I wanted to give you a design tip that is something that we also have to keep in mind whenever we’re accessorizing a room. We always want to make sure that we look at everything going into the room actually in the room itself so that we’re seeing it in the lighting that is in the room. Whether its a light fixtures that is giving light to the room, or natural light from a window coming in, it will vary how your accessories look based on the lighting that’s in the room.
So for example, we had gone to a local store and purchased this towel for staging this bathroom. In a store, typically any general merchandise store, they will use a very cool light that will cast a very blue tone to the materials and to the accessories. This looked much more grey and cool in the store itself, and then we brought it in here, and as you can see its much more warm and has more taupey-brown color than the shower curtain, so we felt like this actually wasn’t a match once it was in and we opted to just use a fresh white towel.
