Which lights were used and why?
Nuance Interiors chose the 3" recessed trimless LED light [14143-R-WH-35K] for general downlighting.
“We liked the 3" fixture size for the scale of the space and light level it provided,” Kelsi said. “The 4" fixtures felt a bit too large, while 2" fixtures were not substantial enough and would have required more fixtures to achieve the same goal. The 3" was Goldilocks-perfect for the space.”
Within Haley Burkhead’s office ceiling and the podcast studios, Kelsi used 2' linear LED [12100-10-R-R30-S2'-35K-BK]
and 4' linear LED [12100-10-R-R30-S4'-35K-BK] lights.
“Both of these linear LED products allowed us to achieve the structural look of the ceiling with fixtures neatly installed in the apex of these vaults,” she said. “We also selected linear diffusers with apertures matching the width of these fixtures. This allowed for all lighting and HVAC needs to be met within neat, thin lines, maintaining [a] solid, structural feel and clean, refined look.”
Product dimensions and construction suited the trim, she noted. “The great light quality and dimming capability allowed us to dial in the perfect light level for an even glow that feels as if light is softly breathing from the ceiling vaults, creating a peaceful, meditative atmosphere.”
Opting for the 3' linear LED wall wash product [12100-10-PR-CR15'-35K-BK] along the kitchen tile wall behind steel and glass hanging shelves, Kelsi was able to keep shelving close to the tiles while illuminating the whole wall. “The fixture was a perfect fit in terms of size and light output,” the lead designer said. “We also brought the wood surround of our built-in millwork right up to the edge of the fixture for a seamless channel look.”
