A few of us from the office were invited by Architectural Lighting Magazine to attend the 2012 Design Awards last week. The ceremony was held at The New York Times. As a residential interior designer, I haven't had a full scale opportunity to work with various lighting professionals as often as I would of liked. So to have been in the company of some of the most illustrious individuals in that field was an eye opener, and brought to mind, once again, the importance of good lighting. In the age of Instagram, and Facebook, many people, including me, see ourselves as a self professed photographer. The trouble is, we often neglect the vital fact that good lighting is often the deal breaker.
This past summer, I witnessed an excellent example of good lighting in the form of an outstanding installations which Bruce Monro did by transforming Longwood Gardens, located in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, into an illuminated wonderland. It left me with a few positive conclusions, one of which were - I'll never look at lighting in the same way ever again.
