Lighting is often overlooked when it comes to interior design, as the focus is usually on colours, furnishings and flooring; however, the most luxurious room can be ruined with poor lighting. More often than not, the biggest mistake is by thinking all that is needed is a single overhead light for a room, but lighting should be approached in a layered manner.
