The porch of this eco-friendly home is made from naturally sourced concrete and marble. To create a focal point, designers installed a unique stone statue that, when hit by the uplighting, resembles a piece of gold. Surrounding this statue is stone, eliminating the home's need for irrigation.
In the kids' room, the homeowners wanted a bright, bold option that would still complement the rest of the house, so designers added a faux thatched roof accent to the space. To keep it bright, yellow uplighting highlights the addition, while bright green and blue curtains and bed frames keep this room fun and youthful. To complete the space, a blue and green geometric rug adds a bit of comfort to the space.
Installing lighting on cabinets isn’t just a practical improvement. It can make the whole room glow, especially if you take a multi-directional approach. This kitchen features uplighting from energy-efficient LED tape on the top cabinets, and task lighting from LED under-cabinet fixtures on the bottom cabinet, both from Kichler. Kichler recommends dimmable task lighting for the kitchen so that you can make it as bright as necessary for doing prep work but dial it down for evening mood-setting.
