When it comes to beautiful lighting, it’s only natural to look up. But great lighting design takes the entire environment into consideration. For instance, lighting projections on the floors not only create a dramatic entrance, but once guests fill the space, they add another layer of lighting texture to the space.
So next time you are either at an event, or planning one, take a minute to look down. Here are 11 ways we bring new meaning to the phrase “Watch where you’re going!!”
