A wall treatment is like huge, unique artistic stickers that can add color and design to a wall. It's a great option when wallpaper is either too busy or too cumbersome.

Wall Washing

A lighting technique that most often is used in outdoor landscape lighting. A strong beam of light is aimed at a wall (or other surface), which gives the wall the appearance of being "washed" in bright light.

Warm Light

Warm light gives off a soft white glow, often yellow in appearance. It’s best used in residential living spaces, indoor or outside. See cool light for more.
