In the kitchen too, is mixed lighting by choosing two types of light sources for two different atmospheres. Thus, opting for soft lighting on dimmer for example, the corner table. And we choose a suspension placed above a bar island for a drink with friends. "The trend is the LED light panel" says Cécilia Bourgin. Very thin, it can illuminate the room without dazzle. It looks like a real skylight in the kitchen. On the other side of the kitchen, we favor a more powerful lighting such as spotlights, cooking in pleasant conditions. "The best is to integrate them into a false ceiling for more aesthetic." Said Cécilia Bourgin. "For a whimsical touch, it transgresses the rules by including a desk lamp as a worktop light.

Playing with lamps sector to overcome the electrical system

The electrical system is not always in our favor. Sometimes no electricity output is provided for the ceiling. To do this we opt for a lamp sector, the yarn can be up to 5m long. Lamps that may well serve as bedside lamps. But this is not enough lighting for a room. "It's a personal place that we need to highlight," says Cécilia Bourgin. To do this, the preferred fabric suspensions, cane, pen or ball-shaped for a pampering appearance.
