From the HLD Gallery, Define Your Light
My tiny home is all about daylight. My south-east facing windows catch the sunrise and fill my living/work space with rainbows on our sunny days, and the sun sets out my west facing windows behind a gorgeous brick watch factory that gave my town it's nickname, the Watch City. I live by the sun complimented with task lights during the day, and bring out my (innately) warm-dimming incandescents in the evening, and some pretty wild uplighting when I'm playing with conference call lighting for game night with the family!
One of the guilty pleasures of this difficult time is getting a peek inside spaces that are usually private – the homes of friends, coworkers, even celebrities.
In a recent HLD staff meeting, as we looked at a tile of each other’s faces, we noted the lighting each of us set up for the call, and how we’ve all had to adjust our homes as we spend more time there. As lighting designers, we know that light is one way we can gain some control over our environment.
Out of that conversation grew a challenge, a question for each of our designers: What are you doing to keep yourself inspired during this time of isolation?
Some of us responded with specifics about lighting our workspaces; others focused on career inspiration or waxed philosophical. Get another peek inside, as we share these responses in our HLD Gallery, Define Your Light
