I fail to see the light

October 16, 2008

I am in the dark as to “lighting design” – quite literally!

Now that my house is really coming together – and more importantly, staying together – the fine tuning of it all is staring me in the face.  The biggest deficiency by far is lighting.

It has been my long-standing belief that overhead lighting is the work of the devil, and I do prefer my rooms to be more cave-like than bright and clinical.


Even I must admit that there are times when sufficient illumination is a good thing:  homework, sewing, and generally any time you want to be *gasp* productive.  My lack of floorspace, total absence of room symmetry, wee square footage, labyrinthine walls, oddly placed outlets, and the general ill will I feel about lighting my space in retaliation to the very existence of fluorescent lighting in the livingroom and kitchen all conspire in my head.  So I pretty much just sit in my dark bat cave and tell myself it’s “mood lighting”.

Damn it.  I need help.  Serious help.  Perhaps it’s time for another trip to Ikea.
