For many, spring is the beginning of new projects that change our living environments to reflect the energy of the season.

ADG Lighting Adds The Magic Touch To Kardashian Style

Architectural Digest Celebrity Homes Kardashian

We are always thrilled to have an opportunity to work on projects in celebrity and high-end luxury homes across Southern California. These projects allow us the distinct opportunity to work with some of the most creative and innovative designers in the industry. Often, these projects are featured in publications and highlighted in editorials, increasing the value and notariety of the property. Our work is still the “secret sauce” of the industry and we bring a key design and creative element to the style of these properties. In the March 2016 issue of Architectural Digest, our work was highlighted in the home of Kourtney Kardashian. The feature showed off the elegance and sophistication of the space. The lighting elements that appear in the feature were initially commissioned by the previous owner, but retained in the remodel by designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. We were honored that Kourtney and Martyn understood the impact and timelessness of our pieces.

ADG Lighting graces the pages of so many industry magazines that feature the timeless projects of exceptionally talented designers. The architects and designers of these featured projects graciously and openly provide our information for credit. However, with so many of these publications, including Architectural Digest, our work is not credited in the publication. We believe that the lack of proper credit for artistic and creative credit in these publications is related to the business relationship with that publication. These publications want to credit and highlight contributors that are also paying advertisers with their publication.

Our position has been and always will be that we provide unique design and manufacturing of custom lighting that significantly enhance any design project. ADG Lighting remains one of the best kept secrets in the industry and we are proud to fill that role. For those who provide proper credit and acknowledgement, we appreciation your generosity. For those clients who know about us and choose to work with our creative team, we know that you receive the best treatment in the industry and the creative edge over all others.

The Fundamentals of Lighting

Do you understand how different types of lighting can work together in your home? Ideally, you want to use a variety of lighting types to achieve a dazzling yet functional aesthetic. Here’s a quick rundown of the three basic types of lighting:

Ambient: Providing an area with overall illumination, this hidden source of lighting fills a room and produces a glow. Ideally it should blend into the surroundings. Ambient lighting can be achieved with chandeliers or wall-mounted fixtures.

Task: Pretty straightforward, this lighting provides light for a function such as reading or cooking. Task lighting can be provided through pendant, recessed or track lighting – or even a simple table lamp! The right kind of task lighting should prevent eye strain and be free of any glare.

Accent: The lighting helps draw the eye to specific fixtures or elements such as paintings or sculptures. It can also be used outdoors to highlight landscaping or unique architecture. Accent lighting can be provided by fixtures such as wall sconces or track lighting.
