I’ve been finding so many marvelous pins about lighting recently. In fact, I’m amazed it’s taken me this long to write a blog post about them! I’ve narrowed it down to my top 3…

I think we all know what I’m going to say about this one. The cove lighting and recessed accent lighting add so much, taking the room’s art deco décor to the next level. If I were to recreate this space, I’d definitely use LED tape lights. They’re incredibly low-profile and will stick anywhere I need them to go!

Switching gears completely (though still dwelling on the versatility of LEDs), this dreamy airplane comes equipped with a dynamic LED lighting system. What I love about this ride, besides the colors, is that it can alter the brightness and color temperature of the lights to help soothe and invigorate passengers. You can preview the light changes during flight here.

Speaking of color temperature, this is a fantastic illustration of the range of natural light we encounter in a day. Diverse, no? I think it shows just how important light variations are to our health and wellbeing. If you’re stuck inside at work all day, unable to get a proper dose of natural light, you might consider putting your lights on a dimmer, and adjusting their brightness to match the time of day. Another option is to install an app like F.lux on your computer, which adjusts your screen’s color scheme – bright and sunny during the day and warm at night.
