Laura Ashley Lighting and Mirrors

Creating an inviting environment within each room can be done by layering lighting throughout the home. Ambient, task and accent lights are the holy trinity to layering lighting, and when used correctly, can create serenity and practicality.

Mary Buchanan, Creative Director for Laura Ashley Lighting and Mirrors explains, “Multi-functional space has become increasingly important over the last 12 months so layer your lighting at different levels to identify and support the variety of activities now taking place.”
When it comes to task lighting, the Laura Ashley Isaac Antique Brass 3 Light Bar Pendant Ceiling Light is the perfect design to place above a breakfast bar, which can also be transformed into a social area in the evening. Mary explains: “Bar pendants offer a direct stream of light to provide a focal point and a welcoming feel for guests. Open plan kitchen diners can be sectioned into “zones” by using directional down-lights or spot task with swivel joints within the prep and cooking areas, and oversized statement pendants with dimmers over the table or island to add drama and atmosphere.”
Ambient lighting is the foundation for a cosy home. Table lamps emit a warm glow that envelops the room in a relaxing atmosphere.

With so many style options available it can be difficult to choose, Mary advises: “Choose a design that combines form and function. Coordinate with your chosen aesthetic or introduce a hint of contrast with statement designs such as pineapples. Add a luxurious touch with bevelled glass for light play and reflection or velvet shades to be unashamedly glamourous.” The Laura Ashley Meredith Cut Glass Crystal Urn Table Lamp Base in Large would be a welcome addition to all contemporary interiors with a classical twist and can be paired with any 40cm shade.
Accent lighting is often used to highlight a particular zone or object. The Isaac Antique Brass 1 Light Wall Light fits effortlessly into kitchens or living areas, and boasts industrial charm.

Mary adds, “Wall lights can throw beams of light around the edge of your space in a decorative way or use plainer styles for a more laid-back ambience.”
