Calming Aura

Calming Aura

Calming Aura

Envision sitting by a lake, water rippling beneath the setting sun. The sky casts a soft, warm glow on everything around you and—just like that—the day melts away. This is Calming Aura: dim, warm-toned light that decompresses the mind and calms the nerves. To set the mood for relaxation, use sconces in a living room nook or under counter or toe kick LED lighting in the bathroom, and cue the exhale.

 

With the right fixtures, bulbs and dimmers, you can easily transform your home from a romantic evening to an energetic gathering space. 

For every space, there’s a lighting scheme that helps set the tone. From foundational lights like ceiling or rail lights, to more decorative lighting like pendants, Kichler can help you discover how different layers of light can enhance your space and set the right tone. 

Find out how you can set the stage and can create the right mood for entertaining, preparing a meal, relaxing or a romantic evening.

The key to achieving Calming Aura is indirect light. Place fixtures, like channel lighting, along walls or hidden in coves or tray ceilings to keep the mood subdued.

FIXTURE
FIXTURE

If you’re winding down in a bathroom, consider indirect light, light where you can see the effect, but not the actual light fixture. Indirect light is easy on the eyes and creates a calming environment. For relaxing in a bedroom, choose a wall sconce for an ambient glow. (Extra suggestion: Grab portable lanterns to bring the relaxation outdoors.)
