Chandelier in shades of blue – using blue in interior design

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

Blue glass chandelier lighting. Interior design using blue in room with blue sofa. Loverslights
This lovely fountain blue ceiling chandelier made from recycled glass looks very at home in this elegant room. Using shades of blue in interior design is always lovely.  I often hear that blue is seen as a cold colour but nothing could be further from the truth. Especially if the shade of blue contains a tiny bit of red for warmth, almost unnoticable but it makes for a subtle gentle shade that if pushed would veer towards violet but not quite.  It works brilliantly teamed with turquoise or Indigo.  Blue lighting and bringing shades of blue in a ceiling chandelier is interesting after all, the sky above us is also blue so there is a harmony in having blue as part of our lighting design.  As always making sure it harmonises rather than dominates the overall scheme.

In the window - Lovers Lights Church Street Twickenham

it has taken some time for all the dust to settle since the move from The Green to Church Street and while it was a hard thing to leave The Green,  it’s very lovely to be down here in pretty Church Street, near to the river.  Our new shop is a tiny jewel and is a hub for work by local designer makers and artists working in and around the Richmond Borough, we do still have work by national guest artists though as I think its important to bring in fresh work from further afield as well as promoting our local creatives. Our new shop is now also co-manned by the artists whose work appears in the gallery so on any given day you can meet one of the artists and chat to them about their work.

So what will you find when you visit our gorgeous little artists haven here in Church Street?

Well Lovers Lights loves handmade lighting and that will never change – Lovers Lights chandeliers and Ray Mallaney’s beautiful porcelain table lights are resident here as always and now twinkle up Church Street in fine fashion,  We also, I think, have the best selection of designer jewellery in the borough with a really have an amazing selection of work for all styles Slideshow5and budgets.

Add to that some rather lovely ceramics, glass, sculpture, textiles, cool artist produced greetings

cards and gorgeous fashion accessories, I think we’ve probably got it covered.

TWICK SHOP LOCALIts no secret that Twickenham has been suffering a bit over the last few years and the traders in our town have not found things easy, so a few of us are going to be putting together an exciting Totally Locally campaign, to try and reach out to our local residents as a gentle reminder that shopping local is a positive choice.  The internet is, for most of us now our go to resource when it comes to shopping and its become second nature to pop onto google and let Amazon do the work.  I’m no different, but alongside that, we all want the same thing, a vibrant thriving town that continues growing, going from strength to strength. Every time we choose a local shop over an online choice we are supporting and adding to our community.

 I will be keeping you updated about our shop local campaigns from here as well as on facebook and twitter so please check out and LIKE our Twickenham Totally Locally facebook page, Totally Locally Twickenham, do please spread the word, together we CAN make a difference.

ThBlue andTurquoise floor lamp in pretty roomis is such a pretty room, I love this combination of different shades of blue teamed with clover pink.  The contemporary aqua floor lamp works so well because it is  light and pretty supporting the room rather than dominating it.

Lighting in a Bohemian setting

Such a lovely relaxed room, this Rhapsody light work perfectly with the colour scheme and is very happy to be there.

Tangerine and turquoise are just gorgeous together – cousins if you like to think of colours in that way. Add a touch of yellow to the right shades of red and blue and tra la!  Gentler and more fun than its primary parents, but still zingy and with lots of energy!Rhapsody Chandelier in Bohemian sitting room

Using Green shades in Lighting and Interior Design

Shades of the Woodland

I love this Woodland green chandelier in this room.  Its just perfect, it has a really organic character and sits beautifully with the slightly bohemian feel of the room. Green has a strong affinity with nature, helping us connect and empathise with others and the natural world. It is associated with nature and symbolises growth, freedom, wealth, stability and good luck.

It is a fantastic colour for to use in interior design because it’s like a neutral colour that can work with soft subtle colours, although of course it can also overpower them.  Because the eye focuses green exactly on the retina, it is considered the most restful colour to the eye.

I love using this glass, such a treat.  Its not recycled but in this case I make an exception.  The iridescent colours are created by a coating of different oxides on the glass.  The result is absolutely stunning.  This light was created for my client Paul Richer and he was thrilled…me too!

Red and Scarlet in Interior Design and Lighting

These two Lovers Lights red Scarlet Botanica chandeliers look great in this bright white contemporary room.  One feature red wall provides the colour cue with some red also in play in the rug.  The chandeliers take center stage though.  I love using red in interior design, it seems to always find its way into my own home in splashes using cushions, paintings, ceramics and rugs etc moving our vision around the room to create little points of interest. Red is a powerful colour that has always been associated with vitality and ambition. It is associated with passion, action, love and desire. One of the main effects the red creates is that it speeds up the metabolism and we find ourselves encouraged to speak and move faster. Red interiors create an invigorating effect making it easier for people to take action. Interior design and decorating with red colours make people to take chances and come up with decisions rapidly.
