From A Space To A Sanctuary: Choosing The Right Lighting For The Bedroom
3 min read
Whether we’re curling up with a book at the end of a busy day or reading the paper as the sunshine streams in on a weekend, our bedrooms are where we take a pause from everyday life for a while…
And lighting really is the make or break in determining whether it’s just a ‘space’ or a sanctuary.
Whether it's the warm glow that comes through the natural weave or that peeps out from the golden interior of our Cone Pendants, the pendants across our collections have fast become bedroom favourites… and our most frequently asked questions relate to how to hang them bedside.
We spoke to Rebecca Stanley at our Gold Coast stockist Three Balls Red, to bring you her expert tips, and answer your top questions on sizing for your space, how high to hang them and how to ensure you get that dreamy bedroom glow.
How should I style bedroom pendant lights?
If you are looking for a feature, we love the visual interest that a pair in different sizes and weaves hung together brings.
For this look, choose different sized pendants in different, complementary weaves.
It also ensures you have enough space to include books, flowers and other styling on your bedside table.
Please get in touch if you need a longer cable than the 1.95m that they come with. We would be more than happy to arrange - we certainly don't want you to make the mistake of hanging your pendants too high!
Getting the perfect glow – how to pick the right globe for the bedroom
It is important to choose a warm globe for the bedroom. This will help create a soft, relaxing space to help calm your mind before you drift off to sleep.
Specifically, a warm white globe (2700k or 2200k) will be best.
And don't forget the dimmer!
"I would opt for a dimmable pendant as you want your bedside light to be used for reading and tasks, however you also want the option to dim the light for mood and ambience", Rebecca Stanley, Three Balls Red
