That's excellent Alex! In our case we were retrofitting space that had dark walls, dark ceilings, and officy flourescents. We kept the 4k flourescents (converted to LED equivalents), painted the walls a lighter color, then added tracklighting all around the space pointing at the walls, and added a few handmade cylindrical fabric accent lights. All of the accent and track lights are on dimmers. Before we had the tracklights, we used strings of $5 clamp on lights in the ceiling. For events in the evening we turn off the "officy" lights and leave on the accent and track lights: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByG3cwY06mlNWm1xZkVJUmhrb00/view?usp=sharing And since everything is LED now, we leave some of the accent and track lights on at night: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByG3cwY06mlNcTU4RElRY3d3b1E/view?usp=sharing Liz Trice www.PelotonLabs.com -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Coworking" group.

+7 on the track lighting hack. I REALLY hate track lighting because it's always beaming into my brain. We used a version of track lighting at Bandwidth and immediately turned all the bulbs to face up and out towards the walls. It's such a great method to get lots of light reflecting off of stuff without it searing your retinas.
