The Genius Way Nate Berkus Adds Extra Light To His Living Room
On Instagram, Nate Berkus showed off his souvenir pottery from his travels, but what ultimately stole the show was the row of picture lights perched atop his living room shelves.
Often used over paintings, these lights cast a soft ambient glow that highlights the contents of Berkus’ shelves, while giving a layered approach to lighting the overall room.
The shadows cast on the shelves below create depth and dimension, and at the same time, allow what is on the shelves to remain fully visible.
To achieve a more timeless and classic feel of an old library, use picture lights above your own shelves or cabinets to cast a cozy glow beneath and highlight certain objects.
