HOW TO PICK OUT THE PERFECT LIGHTING with PROJECT 62 + LEANNE FORD

TIP 1 // PLAY WITH SCALE

Don’t be afraid to play with size when picking out the right light. I say make an impact! Sometimes a light that seems “too large” for the space in the store will feel just right once it’s hung.

TIP 2 // USE MULTIPLES

A great way to create an impact is to use multiples of the same light. This is especially fun and effective over a long table or in a large space.

TIP 3 // STAY WITHIN A COLOR STORY

The lighting you choose should live well and coordinate with the entire room. It should elevate your furniture pieces and create a cohesive clean visual.

TIP 4 // MAKE IT WATER RESISTANT

Don’t forget, the bathroom deserves beautiful lighting too! Just make sure the fixtures you choose are approved for damp spaces.

TIP 5 // GET COZY

The perfect lighting should be bright and light during the day and warm and moody in the evenings. Make it a rule to only bring in dimmable lighting.

TIP 6 // IT’S IN THE DETAILS

It’s not just about the actual fixture when picking a light. Pay attention to the cord (fabric is nicest) and the canopy (clean, simple and modern, please). And don’t ignore the lightbulb! Make sure the bulb is just as beautiful as the rest of the piece.
