Note

One thing that is an absolute must for good interior design is good lighting. It not only adds warmth to our homes, but also influences the ambience, our mood and usage of the space. Therefore, just choosing a beautiful lampshade isn’t enough to achieve the desired harmony. Keeping all these factors in mind, we present a power packed September issue, which focuses on lighting and beyond. It’s true that lighting can make or break the ambience of a room, but, how do we achieve the balance between style, comfort, budget and practicality? Well, we have that sorted for you in this issue! We spoke to five Lighting Architects (pg70) from India and the globe, to know more on creating beautiful interior designs by using the right lights. The usual is always boring, its time to explore the whimsical and unique styles to bring personality to a room. How about opting for a quirky statement light for an outstanding look? The Cover Focus (pg62) pages will give you enough options for many conversation pieces, oozing in the oomph factor! Apart from these, we have added a huge dollop of all things artsy! Go through the shopping section (Pg42) that showcases global art for your home. Since the festivals are approaching, it is the right time to exchange gifts; the story on tableware and silver coloured accessories shall be your perfect guide. Last, but not the least, time and again we have been inspired by the beauty of God’s own country - Kerala. The state and the people need our help and support. Please spread love, and support them as much as you can by donating to the Chie inister’s disaster relief fund. Stay blessed!

LETTER OF THE MONTH

I believe that a home is incomplete without a garden. With pollution taking it’s toll on the citizens, its time that every home (irrespective of the space) needs to have a small garden. The younger generation too needs to understand that having plants at home will not only supply more oxygen, but also will keep the house cool during the warmer months. It’s time for action!

GREAT DESIGNS FROM

DESIGN DESTINATIONS

A lifestyle magazine is known by it’s cover and it’s content. TIHG is no different. Issue after issue, the cover simply upstages the previous one. The August issue cover was a visual delight. Must mention that the cover selection must be a tough call. Definitely there is competition, however, I believe there is space for good content, amazing visuals, reader-friendly articles, and the zeal to give the best each month, irrespective of the magazine. For me, as a reader, TIHG is at the top of the pack. Not because, I am a fan of the magazine, but because it churns out fresh and exciting content every month, which are out of the box experiences. Neha Thakkar Chaudhury, Indore

Bon Apetite

Dream Destinations I am a die-hard travelling buff. Around the world I go once in a month to explore exotic places and destinations that are either shown on the idiot box or narrated by family and friends. As I am not so much tech savvy, I rely heavily on magazines for information. Just the other day, I was flipping through a few magazines, and my eyes fell on The Ideal Home and Garden August issue. Curiosity got enlightened within me and I started flipping through the pages. My hands finally rested on Ideal Getaway. Cool destinations, amazing places and exotic experience is what swept through my mind immediately. I didn’t think much, just told my dedicated travel group, pack your bags, we are all off to The Reverie Saigon, Vietnam. Instantly we also decided that we will explore Sweden too. You have got a fan, a fan in ‘me,’ dedicated for life. Looking forward to more exciting adventurous pages from TIHG in the September issue. Malini Akerkar, Mumbai

I am a foodie. A die-hard foodie. For me the Food Fetish section is a mini recipe booklet. I always look forward to savour tasty recipes, which TIHG treats me to from different states of India. The August issue surprised me. For a change, I came across ‘sweet’ ventures. Though I am not a fan of sweets, I did make the chocolate and coffee wholemeal cookies and Italian chocolate truffle for my little twin daughters. They loved it and kept on pestering for more. Looking forward to what’s in store for the September issue. TIHG is known for springing up surprises every issue. So, keeping my fingers crossed! Malati Iyer, Chennai

Innovations A chat with expert lighting architects who reveal the challenges that the ever rapidly changing world of lighting designs pose IIMPRESSIONS: BENOY SEBASTIAN

KIRSTEN KENT CARANGI (BEAM, LTD.)

Why hire an architectural lighting designer? A lighting designer is skilled at understanding the quality of light. We come from varied educational backgrounds and creative design ields, including architecture, interior design and theater; so, we approach each project as a blank canvas with the intention of using innovative lighting solutions to complement the architecture, enhance atmospheres and secure comfort for the end-user. When should I plan my lighting? Bringing in a lighting designer at the beginning of a project and not waiting until the end is best. If a designer is engaged too late in the design process, constraints in the architecture, such as shallow plenum space or mechanical equipment, can prevent the correct lighting locations. Instead, illumination should be considered for the space early 70 | September 2018 The Ideal Home and Garden

in the process. Oten, our input at the early stages of design greatly inluences architecture parameters that can be well-coordinated, so the space is more dynamic. How much should I budget for lighting? It depends on the size of the space or home. You can spend a lot of money on lighting and controls. A good start is to budget $100 per ixture for a higher quality itting. However, a good lighting designer can also design a creative and unique space to a budget - researching higher quality ixtures and thoughtful design to produce the best bang for your penny. Is there any psychology to lighting? Yes, lighting has a strong psychologic efect. Spaces can feel very comfortable or awful to be in, depending on the colour and quality of light. We believe that by having the right lighting throughout a home, it can improve all aspects of how the home performs and provides for the family that lives there. From providing the right amount and quality of light to ensuring the home is warm, hospitable and suits the personality of its owners.

How critical are LED controls in terms of what you’re designing? Lighting controls in a home are crucial. Having the ability to dim the lights, and/ or turn of lights easily without having unwanted dark spots or overly illuminated areas will make the diference between a home that looks nice and one that looks spectacular. We always make sure that the lighting is controlled well. Whether a custom system or standard dimmers on the wall, it should be installed to guarantee the ability to achieve the spectacular. Can I integrate lighting with my smart home? Today, technology drives design in many aspects of building and this is true for lighting. However, due to the ever-changing nature of the technology, whatever is used must be well vetted and suited to last. Just going with the latest and greatest is not the ideal way of handling a project. Illumination is vital and above all else, the lighting needs to always work. We have embraced LED technology in a strong way because we know that it can minimise energy use and maintenance over time. However, we work hard to select LED ixtures that will provide the best quality of light, at the right light levels, not something that will simply last forever and be cheap to operate.

NIVEDITA MALIK SEHRAWAT (DESIGN MATRIX)

Why hire an architectural lighting designer? Apart from getting aesthetically and more importantly holistically designed spaces, the single most pressing reason to hire a lighting designer would be cost saving - achieve more and better light with less equipment and ittings and to help you make a judicious spend on the right quality of light ixtures. When should I plan my lighting? Lighting is not a layer that is superimposed ater the design is concluded, but in fact needs to be planned as soon as space planning and furniture layout is decided. It is a good idea to develop both (ceiling and lighting design) in tandem and allow a necessary process of back and forth in order to achieve an eicient and holistically designed space. How much should I budget for lighting? A lighting budget for a home typically ranges between `200 to `500 per sqt for a good quality lighting scheme. Having said that there is no upper limit, since decorative light ixtures are governed by personal taste and afordability.

What’s the diference between architectural and decorative light ittings? Architectural lighting consists of cove lighting, recessed or surface mounted downlights/ any speciic lighting for the highlighting of features and artefacts. Decorative lighting consists of loor, table and pendant lamps. What makes lights magical to you? It’s amazing, the transformation to a space that lighting brings about and the ability to instantly change moods at the lick of a switch. In India we are lucky to have ample sunlight and day-lighting hours; and so strategic planning of spaces and windows can help take advantage of the changing light during the day and across seasons. Is there any psychology to lighting? Lighting inluences moods. Opt for cool coloured light for your study/home-oice space. Warmer light on the other hand creates a more relaxed atmosphere and is

associated with feelings of warmth and togetherness. What are the trends that you see in lighting design? Lighting control systems are replacing traditional switches. Design trends in India are oten dictated by what’s popular in Europe and consequently there is a shit towards downlights that are trimless, smaller and inished in non-white colours. How critical are LED controls in terms of what you’re designing? Control technology has advanced a great deal. he key to a successful control setup lies in the programming of the system. And a good lighting designer will take the home owners needs and translate them into system speciically designed for them and their lifestyle. Can I integrate lighting with my smart home? Absolutely. Lighting is seen as an integral part of any smart home. he purpose is not simply energy savings, but also in lending greater control and lexibility to create diferent moods in the same space.

AMIT SHASTRI (Amit Shastri Architects) Why hire an architectural lighting designer? Lighting is one of the most important features in architecture and interior designing. Embracing professional lighting augments the design elements of the projects. Lighting can completely change the mood of a user, highlight design features, create intimacy between the user and the space. Whether a residence or an oice or a hospital or leisure or a school; the role of a designer is to render appropriate lighting to the required areas. Well thought lighting creates spatial transformation and helps to achieve the transition from one space to the other. When should I plan my lighting? Lighting has to be given a keen thought at the initial stage itself while conceptualising to planning out the space detailing. A building or an object both requires prudent amount of light designing either to focus, enhance or utilise the space. It is sensible to zone out the plan and lighting together. It should be planned according to the use of space with proper design aspects. How much should I budget for lighting? About 10 per cent to 15 per cent of the cost of a project. Everything depends on the design aspects and the use of light in the detailing. What’s the diference between architectural and decorative light ittings? Architectural lighting - the necessary light, natural as well as electrical provided looking in the architectural prospects and the areas planned according to that. It is need based. Decorative light ittings - the light provided to change ambience, create special efects and hilight some of the points in view of aesthetic and design.

of interior illumination that adds sheen to the design. What makes lights magical to you? he saying goes, it is always right when the light is right. Light can create magic whether it is a wall or a furniture piece or the entire room; subconsciously lighting also creates a bond between the space and the user.

which strikes or focus like a painting or a mural. Lighting changes people’s awareness of the space.

Is there any psychology to lighting? Yes. Lighting has to be designed as per the area, the user, space and client psychology. he correct lighting design makes it perfect and comfortable for the user and the space. It’s important to understand the human psyche or the light motivation when we talk about how clients feel in a space. What are the trends that you see in lighting design? It could be one single tubelight itting in a room to ambient lighting, cove lighting, decorative lighting. In fact, the ittings and its illumination can be used as art and geometry graphic in the interiors,

How critical are LED controls in terms of what you’re designing? LED has breathed in a new energy into lighting design with its sleek ittings and slim dimension. LED strips can be easily turned and twisted around a design or object to highlight it. LED lighting has added lexibility to the lighting design. Along with lexibility, it also gives us colour options to use in the designing that can be dynamic enough to change with the mood of the space. LED has good light output, as well as is easy on the client’s pocket with less energy consumption thus contributing to conscious designing. Can I integrate lighting with my smart home? he entire lighting designing can be conigured to the simplicity of a one touch, one gadget utility like a tablet. It does make us tech sharp, but on a lighter note, physically lazy.

KAPIL SURLAKAR (LIGHT@WORK Design Consutants Pvt. Ltd.) Why hire an architectural lighting designer? A good architectural lighting designer understands the conceptual and technical nuances that an architect lends to a space, and in turn uses his knowledge of appropriate technology, lighting fundamentals, and its interaction with the human inhabitants to integrate the same into the man-made spaces to fulill its functional as well as aesthetic needs. When should I plan my lighting? Lighting should be an integral part of the overall design concept. So, simply put, it should be planned right from the start, or as early as possible, so as to facilitate a well-planned and integrated solution. Lighting should be planned along with the concept, as it helps in developing the spaces and architecture to be able to accept technology and equipment well integrated with allied services. How much should I budget for lighting? International standards ideally stand at eight per cent of the total cost of the project. Having said that; these numbers can deviate drastically depending on the scale of the project and the degree of complexity of the lighting tasks.

76 | September 2018 The Ideal Home and Garden


Cover Focus Plus What’s the diference between architectural and decorative light ittings? Architectural lighting is the art that uses the knowledge of lighting science, and its efects on humans and other living organisms, sometimes plants too, to render man-made spaces of various scales in the right light as per requirements of the design concepts. Decorative or direct view visual elements integrated with a light source of an appropriate technology are articulated to provide a focal element, wherein light is the secondary function. What makes lights magical to you? he ability of light to inluence human physiology and well-being and its inherent role in dictating the circadian rhythms to all living beings is an attribute that’s fascinating. Is there any psychology to lighting? Good lighting has the ability to inluence human perception and also

create a feeling of well-being and positivity. Well designed lighting has the ability to inluence customer behaviour positively. Lighting also can be used to create feelings of calmness, excitement, comfort, etc. Green rooms for calmness or red environments for the adrenalin boost in discotheques, as well as neutral or daylight white light

in 24/7 work spaces are some great examples of how light is used to manipulate the human response. What are the trends that you see in lighting design? he current dominant trend strongly inluenced by industry revolves around LED. Everybody knows about LED or has heard

of it. It’s exciting, consumes low power and can change colour. It is cost-efective. he lack of clarity and knowledge on the subject of lighting is adversely afecting architectural lighting or speciication grade lighting, which is a very disturbing trend.

How critical are LED controls in terms of what you’re designing? he ability to control light provides lexibility and various opportunities to designers. Diferent individuals have diferent preferences to the lighting conditions, and lighting controls allow the possibility to change the lighting conditions in a space without physically changing the lighting installation. LED is essentially an electronics chip, which emits light and can be addressed individually or collectively through a control system. Controls can be related to dimming, switching, and tunability of colour. Can I integrate lighting with my smart home? Yes, lighting is an integral part of any home, and it would not be a very smart move if the same is not well thought of and integrated smartly with your smart home.

Each lighting type meets a need, and by layering these you can create an atmosphere and mood in your space and highlight key aspects of your room’s design. What’s the diference between architectural and decorative light ittings? Architectural lighting concerns the utilitarian aspect of the lighting design. It revolves around the concept 78 | September 2018 The Ideal Home and Garden

of aesthetic appeal of a space ater addition of lighting with maximum functionality. Decorative lighting is like jewellery and accents for the home, it helps your space sparkle and shine. How much should I budget for lighting? Task lighting that is the basic amount of light or luminance level required for a room or some other space, shall not be compromised for eiciency and comfort of an user in the space. Decorative lighting can be compromised as per the budget of the client. Budget for lighting is also controlled by other factors like civil work needed for ixtures, brand, quality and durability of a light and requirement of light for task of a speciic space. What makes lights magical to you? Lighting has a big impact on the rooms in your house. A beautiful room can look bad because of bad lighting and an average looking space can get a much better look thanks to quality lighting. Lights can create a magic that no other element of design can.

Is there any psychology to lighting? Anything concerned to humans and their surroundings have psychology involved in it, irrespective of its nature. We react to diferent colours of light with diferent emotions and to the contrast between light and dark with diferent moods. What are the trends that you see in lighting design? One of the oldest, but most efective trends, is layered lighting i.e. making use of several types of light to achieve the needed level of brightness. he order for homes is ambient lighting, task lighting, focal lighting and accent lighting. How critical are LED controls in terms of what you’re designing? LEDs are the most eicient way for illumination with a lifetime of up to 25,000 hours. hey give of an instant, warm white light and come in a clear, opal or frosted inish, making them very versatile. LED light provides instant response and have a superior optical performance. hey are the present and the future.

Can I integrate lighting with my smart home? Older ways of lighting will extinct within a few years. Society is increasingly getting won over by smart lighting, which promises greater comfort, safety and lower energy consumption. Switches and pushbuttons will become redundant. Motion sensors are taking over. Another beneit of smart lighting is that the lamps switch of automatically when a room is empty. The Ideal Home and Garden September 2018 |

Perhaps those events are made up of a series of epic moments when some collectively put their hands together to shape sot clay or chisel out a shape that stands the test of time and some, like Sanjay Das picks up the camera.

People & Decor Running to client meetings...

First thing in the morning... I like to start my day on a blank slate and ease; instead of rushing into accomplish things. A cup of hot brewing cofee and some of my few design books is what I like to sit with. Spending about some half an hour creating interesting ideas deinitely cheers me up!!

Preparation is the key. A structured approach to client meeting is what I prefer, thereby keeping in mind the details what I would like to know before concluding the meeting is very important. For instance if its a new client , I prefer to do my pre-meeting analysis of the client’s background, lifestyle etc.

Taking a moment for your coffee break...

Helps me re-imagine design from a diferent perspective, re-invent focus of the day and rejuvenate for planning next week agendas.

B d e sh

Jam Fielding calls from potential clients concerning design projects... I prefer to give them a brief of our multi disciplinary irm and highlight the integrity in all our endeavours of design detail & supervision to create spaces that relect the aspirations of our clients.

Coordinating pickup and delivery from wholesalers and design showrooms... Oten the samples are sent to our oice and coordination is done by associates responsible for the project. Niche design or new product launched which need us to visit the showroom are coordinated along with the client. he samples sent to the oice is oten used to create mood boards which streamlines the design intent and inal execution

Trying to fit everything in your small bag... Well without fail the things which goes in my bag are Ipad, laser tape, sketch book, pen/ pencil, brochure and visiting card.

Sleep... I love to sleep with peace of mind feeling accomplished for the day with a hope of tomorrow to be more productive and successful.

People & Decor First thing in the morning... Have a cup of green tea, go for a swim and play with my dogs followed by a much needed cofee and then I head straight to work. Work takes me to places so sometimes I am travelling, but wherever I am, I believe an early start is integral to have a fruitful day.

Running to client meetings... Yes, I am very punctual in nature, so this comes easily to me. Time needs to be respected and especially in our ield, deadlines, timings, meetings are all important and I believe being on time is sential to being productive

e n n A e i r a M dejans Ou

Taking a moment for your coffee break... Yes! he most important part of the day, a break is needed, especially if one is on location/site, we don’t realise how exhausted the body can get till one sits down to relax, even if its for a few minutes, recharging yourself is very important.

Coordinating pickup and delivery from wholesalers and design showrooms... Fielding calls from potential clients concerning design projects... I have a lovely team that is in charge but they keep me updated on everything. I take up selective work, work that I am passionate about. One such project is the recently completed new studio of Gem Palace, a place where my dear friend Siddharth Kasliwal’s father, Late Munnu Kasliwal created his masterpieces. It is a project that is extremely dear to me and I take up work that I connect with on a personal level.

Trying to fit everything in your small ba g...

Again, I have a fabulous and eicient team who is on top of things, they know my nature and that I like deliveries on time so as to ensure projects are completed on time and I am blessed to have them.

his is a challenge , but the trick is to carry a bigger bag and be selective about wha t is needed the entire day.

Sleep... 8 hours and nothing less!

Ideal Living

he design of the Jindal residence is an exercise in trying to provide personally identiiable living spaces for each family member - spanning three generations under one roof. here are individual spaces within the home, which retains the larger singular theme that would bind the whole atmosphere together. he home is housed on a single longitudinal loor-plate and is accessible through a staircase and an elevator on its longer side. he main entrance of the house opens into a foyer that provides access to the drawing room, and to a corridor that acts as the circulation spine. his corridor forms a central axis and runs for almost the entire length of the home; it opens up into a family lounge and open kitchen-dining in the heart of the house, while its ends are marked by entryways into the bedrooms. he Jindal’s wanted the design of their home to revolve around the existing loor-plate where the external walls had already been placed and the internal walls were in the process of being put up. As the structure was lacking adequate provision of natural light and air for the interiors, the loor-plan was modiied in an efort to optimise daylight penetration and cross-ventilation. A central cut-out is devised to bring natural light into the semi-public kitchen and dining space. Additionally, a verandah is provided as an extension to the drawing room, and indoor plants are placed within the house to encourage engagement with nature. Distinctive personalised elements are added in the bedrooms to relect individual interests and sensibilities; this includes a large world-map backdrop in the teenaged boy’s room, and a ceilinghanging jhoola in the teenaged girl’s room. he larger decor, however, carries the same materiality throughout the residence to weave a metaphorical thread around the home. Natural materials and

Where to start Whether it’s a land, terrace, or a balcony garden, the ground rule is the same for all. It’s like a canvas sheet that you have. here are certain parameters that you have to consider before you start digging a hole. he irst thing you have to identify is the sun position, then the climatic conditions, and inally, which plants will work best according

to the area you live in. If you’re in Bengaluru, then there are certain types of plants, you’ll like to keep, which may not be able to survive in Delhi and vice versa. Ater considering these basic rules you can start laying out a loor plan for your garden. Create a plan Talking about the usage of your garden, you might want an ornamental garden for your

even the gloomiest of days. Practical garden owners lay an elaborate loor plan marking out the place where to keep the chairs, the pots, where to add lights, etc. When it comes to a utility garden, you’ll notice that most Indian households grow edible plants like Tulsi, Curry patta, Neem amongst others. Growing vegetables and fruits at home is a fairly popular activity amongst Indian folks. Required tools It’s easy to go overboard with purchasing gardening tools, but these things can be expensive and take up a lot of space. You can instead focus on getting the basic tools that will assist you in almost any gardening activity like trovels - wonderful for planting herbs, digging around corners and taking out weeds; spade helps in digging holes for plants and moving small mounds of dirt from one area to another; pruning scissors helps in tidying up your plants. Start small Regardless of the size of your garden, it can be a daunting task for a gardening beginner due to the commitment and time involved. Growing vegetables can be a fun introduction to gardening as they don’t take as long to grow, so, if you did make a mistake you wouldn’t have wasted months of your time. A lot of lowering plants such as Bougainvilleas, Marigold, Hibiscus are good to start with if you’re afraid of killing the plants. Water accordingly Water the plants consistently and in ample amount. Consistent means on a regular basis and ample means suicient enough, which varies from plant to plant. During germination, plants require steady moisture, so light but consistent watering is key during this time. When doing regular watering, take the time to give each plant ample amount of water. Care of plants Proper maintenance is the greatest thing you can give your garden and the most rewarding. One thing you should look out for is to avoid crowding. Research your plants - how big they will get, and how much space they will require, space them accordingly. Shorter and creeping ones should be planted towards the front and edges of the garden bed, with the taller plants in the back - be mindful of taller plants that would block smaller ones, or the ones that require a lot of sun or shade.
