Lighting is the unglamorous, often-ignored aspect of interior design, which is a shame because it is SO important. Sometimes lighting can make all the difference in a room and the best furniture/textiles/accessories won't shine in a room with bad lighting. Gary Gordon's Interior Lighting for Designers is now in its fifth addition, which shows how quality this book is. I've used previous additions and found them invaluable for creating pleasing lighting schemes and the fifth addition includes some excellent updates to make the whole thing a must-have.You might not think that there is much to lighting, but you would be totally wrong. Lighting is actually vital to our health and mental well-being, which is why a poorly-lit room can make us feel uncomfortable and unhappy. This book covers every aspect of lighting: Lighting perception, light and your health, the psychology of light, color tones, daylighting, types of lighting, light control, sustainable lighting and methods. To help drive all of these points home, the book includes tons of pictures, both b/w and color and tons of illustrations and graphics. A book about light has to have good illustrations (since sometimes you have to show the concept rather than describe it) and this one does. It is also firmly based in the latest information and data, so you know you are getting the best information you can.This book doesn't just tackle electric lighting - which sets it apart from some lighting books - it also includes natural lighting and ways to control it, such as blinds, shutters, awnings and the like. I also love that the book gets really into he different type of lamps, including shapes, fittings, voltage, etc.
