Austin luxury homes are distinguished by custom architecture, eclectic floor plans and subtle Austin style lighting designs. There is much more than square footage to consider when lighting such a home. The subtleties of exterior architecture and interior design must be taken into strict account.
Even the way people use the space inside their home is important. People do more than live in their mansions. They use them to collect and display art, and they also frequently use them to host private events. Residents frequently use their homes for family reunions, wedding receptions, home theater parties, and dinner gatherings.
Indoor and outdoor lighting is an essential supporting element for all of these events. Lighting control is the key to making light work for the discriminating homeowner.
With a lighting control system, Austin luxury home owners can transform one lighting array into hundreds of lighting combinations with the touch of a few simple buttons. Home lighting control systems will enable residents to manipulate single fixtures at a time, or entire groups of fixtures.
By manipulating the intensities of the light in different parts of the room, a host can establish any mood for any event. He or she can even supplement lighting with music and create a full sensory experience for all to enjoy.
Interior lighting systems like this are always installed with the intent of establishing multiple layers of general and decorative lighting in each room of the home. It is not uncommon for a living room, master bedroom, kitchen, or dining room to be adorned with up to four layers of light tied to a single lighting control system.
Art lighting is handled as a separate science by the team. Fine art light requires special equipment that is UV filtered in order for artwork to be preserved. It also requires certain attributes of light for the full richness of its colors to be brought into full view of the audience.
Austin luxury homeowners who showcase sculpture and fine art should know that ILD has over 30 years of experience in the creation of fine art lighting systems. As a fine art lighting company we have access to proprietary equipment found nowhere else on the market that is both UV filtered and renowned for color rendering capability.
Lighting on the outside of an Austin luxury home is no less impressive. Outdoor tree lighting fixtures are typically hidden from view so the home appears to glow in the night with a magic light of its own. In some, cases, however, the architecture of the house is such that it is better to use decorative outdoor fixtures that compliment the walls and rooftops of the home.
In either event the façade of the house is always given special attention because the house is, for all intents and purposes, the keynote of the entire landscape.
Landscape elements are then highlighted to support the figure of a Austin luxury home. The size of the lot does not matter. Every property has its own unique attributes that can be highlighted with a variety of landscape light fixtures.
Trees, gardens, pathways, walkways, ponds, and gardens are illuminated lit with a wide range of special outdoor fixtures. Individual elements can be showcased for their uniqueness, and then they can be unified with layers of light that bathe the entire property in a dreamlike ambience.
