Beautiful HomeEvery artist knows that true beauty lies in the details. Great interior designers are also awareof this and demand perfection in even the smallest detail, physically and sensually. 12. raditionally,From a new perspective, furniture andin addition to these physical fixtures, lamps, design elements, you also needflooring, wall colour to take care of every little detailand materials were well such as discreetly placed lightmatched with the overallswitches to match the interiors.And a truly beautiful homeinterior design in awould also provide the mood andbeautiful dwelling.ambience to infuse your homewith character and life. SchneiderElectric helps you to enhanceyour interior design and takecare of your senses with thesmallest details. 13. Wall switches as a Design Element You can never avoid wall switches at home as they are located at eye level and you touch them every day. Ugly light switches become unavoidable eyesores, while beautiful switches explicitly enhance the overall interior design. Schneider Electrics switches and sockets boast a full spectrum of attractive colours, patterns, materials and finishes that will fit in various design concepts, match different decoration context, and actually enhance them. Why be content with conformity when a little extra attention to detail will achieve true distinction?Fine Lighting for Mood and AmbienceTo go from better to the best interior design, your mood and senses shouldalso be well taken care of. With the right ambience, a space can provide asensual experience, from cosy peacefulness to passionate romance. The bestway to achieve that is through Fine Lighting. Fine Lighting is the art of creatinginspiration with light thats matched to the occasion. This is implemented byinterplaying designer lighting fixtures with light intensities from various artificialand natural light sources. Lamps, blinds and curtains are adjusted via onetouch scene control system to ensure the same perfect mood and ambienceevery time. This can be easily achieved with Schneider Electrics 2-wireTruRetrofit lighting control or interoperable control systems. Lighting Control in Action There are 3 general approaches to dimming and scene control. Standalone dimming uses a dimmer to control a single light source to manually adjust the brightness to create simple ambience. Collective dimming makes use of more than one dimmer to control different light sources to create ambience by a multitude of lighting effects. Scene control systems are used to control different light sources simultaneously, allowing different combinations of light sources to be switched on or off to the pre-set brightness. You can recall your pre-set scenes at one touch of a button with wireless control. There are 2 types of scene control systems: the 2-wire TruRetrofit that directly replaces the existing 2-wire mechanical switches, offering scene control without the hassle of rewiring; and the interoperable control system that suits situations where the whole house rewiring is done, providing more scene options and compatible with upgrades to a home control system. 14. Based on art deco and tech-chic, NEO is a breakthroughin switch design. It demonstrates horizontal thinking, withunconventional horizontal dollies and layered details,and is the first mechanical switch to use LED locatorsand indicators.
