[Coworking] Re: Lighting your space (Alex Hillman?)

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:

And since everything is LED now, we leave some of the accent and track 
lights on at night:

+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.
