CANDLE, CANDLE BURNING BRIGHT

During the renaissance period we first see the use of lighting for decoration, rather than functionality, but it wasn’t until the 18th century that the aesthetics of lighting, and how it made a room look and feel, became important. Just as important today, clever lighting can transform the mood from dramatic to peaceful. Well chosen lighting really does make a house a home.
