Transform Your Space with Purposeful Lighting

Lighting Design


Designing a beautiful home is about more than choosing the right color palettes and furniture—lighting plays a vital role as well. Lighting should highlight architectural features, bring attention to high-end furnishings and make colors stand out. That same lighting also serves to enhance your everyday life, boosting your mood and helping you accomplish important tasks. Hire a professional to optimize the lighting design in your Wayzata home for a luxurious residence that fits your Minnesota lifestyle.

    Why hire a residentiallighting designer?

    Employing an independent lighting designer may seem like an odd choice for homeowners that have relied on electrical contractors and interior designers to take care of their lighting needs in the past. But when you make lighting a secondary job for others, it becomes an afterthought in your home.

    • Special training on physics, optics, electricity, codes and environmental impact
    • Equipment costs reduced through competitive bids and manufacturer partnerships
    • Initial cost analysis outlines lighting techniques that will reduce equipment and labor costs
    • Detail-minded staff craft innovative designs attuned to your home and lifestyle needs

    Essential Layers of Light


    You risk strained eyesight, obtrusive shadows and rigid spaces with a one-tone lighting design. Leverage ambient, task and accent lighting for a visually balanced and flexible space.
    Ambient Light
    Illuminate the entire room with soft lighting from natural sunlight, recessed ceiling lights or pendants.
    Task Lighting
    Special pendant, desk or under-cabinet lights provide bright, focused illumination for specific activities.
    Accent Lighting
    Highlight artwork, photos and architectural details with lighting three times brighter than ambient fixtures.
    • Daytime

      Keep to your workday schedule with a “Daytime” lighting scene that automatically activates at 9 am every day. As you head into your home office, bright white-blue ambient lights and desk lights greet you for optimal focus and concentration.

    • Bedtime

      As you head to bed at the end of the day, prepare for restorative sleep with a “Bedtime” lighting scene you can activate from a bedside remote or tablet. Not only do lights dim gradually, but they switch to a warm, orange hue that induces relaxation.

    • Entertaining

      Entertain in style with a “Party” lighting scene that activates lights in the kitchen and living room to a white-blue hue that keeps guests energized throughout the night. Add landscape lighting to the scene to encourage guests to gravitate to your beautiful outdoor spaces.

    • Movie Night

      Transform your theater into the perfect viewing environment with a “Movie Night” lighting scene on your handheld remote or touchpad that dims recessed lights and decorative sconces while turning on floor track lighting for safe movement during the movie.

    ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTING FIXTURES


    For a successful layered lighting design to work, you’ll want to incorporate a wide range of premium lighting fixtures throughout your space rather than relying solely on canned ceiling lighting. Through a mixture of high-end pendants, downlights and track lights, our designers ensure even, layered lighting that adds depth and beauty to your Minneapolis home while facilitating all your everyday tasks. Explore how each model has a role in enhancing your overall space.
    • Linear Pendants

      Design-Forward Lighting
      Pendant lights available in a wide range of colors and finishes add a spark to your décor while supporting ambient or task lighting needs. Transform your interior design through elegant fixtures hanging from the ceiling or within a track light system.
    • Downlights

      Illumination without Clutter
      Downlights are primarily used for ambient lighting, though they’re also used for task or accent lighting in some applications. Recessed or flush mounted in the ceiling, they’re available in round or square trims to match your décor.
    • Retrofit Downlights

      Remodel without Limitations
      Replace outdated lighting fixtures seamlessly with retrofit downlights featuring low-profile designs that fit into most standard recessed housing. Select from our collection of high-end tunable LED fixtures available in round or square trims.
    • Track lighting

      Bright, Versatile Spotlights
      Track lighting offers a flexible solution for your home’s accent and task lighting needs. Install adjustable spotlights on a track or rail system to showcase artwork or illuminate cabinets. Expand your stylistic choices with straight, round or curved track models.

    Lighting Control


    Effortless control is vital for unleashing the true potential of your lighting design. Easily manage the diverse fixtures in your home to develop beautiful layering while maintaining a uniform feel throughout with a lighting control system. Take advantage of a centralized approach to your lighting that not only yields intuitive, tailor-made control from your devices of choice but also results in a streamlined installation for a beautiful, clutter-free space.

    Interfaces

    High-end lighting control systems feature personalized interfaces available on dedicated touchpads or mobile apps. Approach lighting your way with easy-to-use graphic menus that show the status of lights in each room and let you make changes with a simple button tap. Adjust intensity, color and color temperature for fixtures individually or as groups, then save your favorite settings and pull them up at any time with ease.

    Processor

    The processor is the heart of your lighting control system, facilitating communication between your control devices and fixtures. Having a high-end processor ensures clear, uninterrupted communication without any lag. Efficient communication means as soon as you input a command—no matter the source—you get an immediate and accurate response. During the initial design stage, our lighting experts determine which model best fits your needs based on its bandwidth and processing power.

    Dimming Panels

    What makes a professional lighting control system stand out is its centralized control using dimmer panels. All dimming and control capabilities are routed through these remote panels that are installed out of sight in an equipment room or utility closet. Dimmer panels reduce wall clutter in individual rooms, cut down on the wiring infrastructure, allow for more complex programming capabilities and minimize the need for power boosters while also controlling fans and motors.

    Smart Dimmers/Switches

    Reduce your wall acne even further with smart dimmers and switches that incorporate complex commands and scenes. These luxury keypads replace banks of switches and dimmers to streamline your décor. Improve convenience with keypads that offer instant access to scenes, let you manage lights throughout the house and offer combined dimmer and switch control in one housing. Explore models fit for any décor with flush-mounted solutions featuring matte, metal or glass finishes in plentiful colors.

    Craft a Beautiful Space with Light

    Outfit your Minnesota home with professional lighting design and control for illumination that ushers a new level of luxury into your every day. From design to installation, our lighting experts deliver white-glove service and unprecedented quality.
