    Really liked this video as im currently designing and building my house and I’ve been dealing with the challenge of doing the lighting correctly. Out here in Florida I only find "soft white" but it’s 2700k and "daylight" at 5000k in LED bulbs. I have many recessed lights all around the house and the concept is VERY open with a sizeable double height area with the loft overlooking the living room and dining area, How can I do with the lighting to make something that looks good but without having to invest in costly lights that change colors? Building costs have gone up considerably and my budget for the house has gotten much tighter than I was anticipating initially.

  9. BEL sab on January 24, 2023 at 8:41 pm

    I didn’t know smart bulbs exist! It is definitely a good investment.

  21. Alice & Biscuits on January 24, 2023 at 9:03 pm

    Hi there. I just moved in a flat where there is no lightings in the ceiling. What is the best option to light correctly a living room and bedroom as we rent our place so we can’t build anything. Thanks a lot



  22. AMAN SHAH on January 24, 2023 at 9:03 pm

    nice

    Thanks for the good vid 🙂



  30. JoannaJUT on January 24, 2023 at 9:15 pm

    Thank you for this video. It is not easy to find suitable lamps that are decorative, practical and simple at the same time. What do you think about electric fireplaces? I would like to buy one for my living room. It will be a decorative source of warm light.



  31. rikimaru on January 24, 2023 at 9:16 pm

    u gay?



  32. Frost Malone on January 24, 2023 at 9:18 pm

    Thank u jesus. <3



  33. Lizzie Timberlake on January 24, 2023 at 9:20 pm

    Loved this video and learned a lot!! Thank you! Would love to hear educational style vid on deciding what/how much to put on walls (in living room or bedroom) 🙂



  34. Alex Gabriele on January 24, 2023 at 9:21 pm

    This is my second video I watched by you and I am impressed! When I want to learn "How To", the how it works details, the examples, and recommendations are exactly what I look for. You nailed them all! Thank you for creating this content.



  35. Gabriela Gomez on January 24, 2023 at 9:23 pm

    A veces tenemos algo en mente pero no sabemos cómo empezar; con planner5d podéis diseñar y visualizar el espacio que queráis en 3D. El Smart Wizard creará un renderizado con el estilo que elijáis, y después podéis modificarlo como más os guste 🙂



  36. Guu on January 24, 2023 at 9:25 pm

    Very informative, thank you 🙂



  37. Janet Hunt on January 24, 2023 at 9:25 pm

    This was incredibly helpful. I am redecorating a guest room, and I can use these tips on lighting it. I would love to watch a similar video on decorating shelves with a combination of books and objects in a living room.



  38. John Mc on January 24, 2023 at 9:27 pm

    There’s no mistakes. Whatever you like is correct according to you.



  39. Ri Ri La on January 24, 2023 at 9:27 pm

    Thank you so much for this I learned a lot. The lamps that can be adjusted from your smartphone is nice. I’ll look it up



  40. Reynard Lowell on January 24, 2023 at 9:30 pm

    This is my first (well, technically second :D) proper ‘talking head’ style video, so please be kind!
    I wasn’t sure initially on producing this type of video, but I wanted to share and dive deeper into design topics and challenges which is almost impossible to do with full ‘B-roll’ clips, so hopefully this is something you find valuable as well.
    If you do, let me know what topics you want me to cover next. The most upvoted comment/topic suggestion will be made into a video in the upcoming weeks.
