We cannot stress enough how important lighting is in a well-designed space. At Sérendipité the lighting selection often takes precedence in the design of any room because you can design a drop-dead gorgeous room but if the lighting is lacking or missing the room will never live up to its potential. The type of light a fixture gives off creates a mood for the space and highlights the other pieces in the room. The aesthetic of the fixture itself adds visual appeal and depth to a room.
Your guest may come over and ooh and ahh over your beautiful space but we can guarantee if you were to remove the carefully selected lighting, their reactions would not be the same. With that said, we like to remind our clients, go ahead and splurge on a beautiful light fixture that speaks to you! There are other areas of the room that money can be saved. A stunning and thoughtfully selected light fixture will never be regretted because it will make the whole design complete, just like the icing on the cake!
