Randall Whitehead, a regular guest expert on HDTV and Martha Stuart Living Radio, will act as your guide to the best of the emerging alternative light sources, while taking you on a roller coaster ride of good and bad lighting. This presentation will show you how to incorporate energy efficient sources into a comprehensive and inviting design, giving a look that feels like incandescent. The quality of illumination remains with the added benefit of reduced wattage and fixtures that can last a very, very long time. As newer versions of LEDs are coming onto the market, learning what to look for on the label can go a long way in making more informed decisions about the products that you select. Some of the terminologies will be familiar, but some may be new to you. Whether you are using LED sources or not, the basic premise of good lighting design, called light layering, remains the same. This is when different functions of light- task, accent, ambient and decorative are used in combination to create a cohesive and flexible illuminated environment. This technique has not changed with the introduction of alternative light sources, but what we choose can make or break the success of the lighting design.
