Highly modern home interiors look crisp in the bright light of day, but how does the sharp aesthetic translate into cosy evenings spent at home or dreary days? In the case of this pair of modern interiors, visualised by Hilight Design, soothing lighting changes the atmosphere into something very special. Diffused halos soften contemporary form, and bring warming glow to cool black and grey colour schemes. Perimeter lighting wraps rooms like a warm hug, whilst an unusual selection of pendant lights introduce an eye catching strong sculptural element. We’ll also explore placement of colourful accent furniture within these two interiors, along with a revitalising inclusion of lush living greenery to uplift darker decor moments.
In Warsaw, Poland, this 196 square metre modern house interior is created with eco-friendly materials that harmonise with living greenery. Wood, glass and concrete combine with a restful lighting scheme that is fashioned as much for atmosphere as it is illumination. Suspended track lights streak the ceiling above the lounge area, gently highlighting the detail of an eye catching monochrome print rug below.
The modular sofa provides seating around 360 degrees, facilitating the optimal TV viewing angle or peaceful views of green spaces. A pair of small side tables add sculptural form to the centre of the room in cahoots with the accent chair.
LED perimeter lights mark the edge of the open plan, whilst a courtyard grows tropical beauty into its heart.
The kitchen diner lies just past the lounge TV wall. A spectacular kitchen ceiling feature makes a dramatically dark backdrop for a brightly burning linear chandelier. A black rectangle dining table complements the installation.
The ceiling treatment works as a clear zoning technique over the kitchen island, where an additional dining spot is attached on one end.
Two linear suspension lights service the breakfast bar and lengthy island countertop.
Smaller spotlights shine like starlight in the pitch black ceiling.
