The Right Light
by Marcia Feeney
It’s more than an
fixture. Or a table
lamp set next to
your favorite chair.
A well-lit room
includes four major
types of lighting
– ambient, task,
accent and mood
– all which create a
dramatic effect in your room.
Ambient or general lighting is indirect,
and literally bounces off the walls and
ceiling to provide comfortable background
illumination. It’s important that it be
distributed evenly in your rooms, so that
no areas are overly bright or hidden in
the shadows. Recessed and track lighting
are considered two of the best general
sources of light.
Task lighting does exactly as its name
infers – it provides necessary light for
specific duties such as reading, writing or
cooking. Again, it’s important that task
lighting be shadow free. Because of its
“localized” nature, two great examples
are reading lamps and under-counter
Accent lighting is purely decorative,
and includes everything from up-lights
and torchieres to sconces and spotlights.
If you want to accent a work of art, or
draw attention to an architectural element
in your home, then accent lighting would
be your best choice.
Mood lighting generally comes from
flexible light sources. For example, if
you want to change the mood in your
dining room, simply add a dimmer switch
to your chandelier and you’ve instantly
change your room’s ambiance.

The next potluck will be held on
Wednesday October 28, begin-
ning at 6 p.m.
Artisan chocolatier Tracy Peck cre-
ates incredible flavor pairings at her
Naples-based business. “Artisan” means
that the product is hand made in small
batches rather than machine mass
produced. An artisan is one that has
creatively conceived, designed and exe-
cuted the making of a product, which,
in this case, are delectable chocolate
barks, truffles and other specialty con-
fections created by Once Upon A Bean.
Peck will bring taste samples of three
levels of chocolate: white, milk and
dark, while guiding attendees through
her tasting map. Learn about cacao and
how it is sourced from different cacao
