Lighting specialist and interior designer Clare Winchester

Clare views lighting as a vital part of interior design, to be considered right from the start of a project. Lighting is one of the first things she looks at when charged with improving an existing home or commercial environment.

She has an intuitive talent for lighting but, like other professional interior designers, Clare believes that practising interior design requires continuous learning. Her education at Chelsea College of Art included the study of task, ambient and decorative lighting, but later on she also took a specific course in Lighting Design at KLC School of Art, in London’s Chelsea Harbour Design Centre.

There she learnt more about the many different light sources that can make a home come alive, covering the whole spectrum from candlelight to fibre optics, taking in halogen spotlights and LEDs along the way, and how to use all these types of lighting to best effect in technical lighting plans resulting in beautiful and functional solutions for her clients.

Clare keeps abreast of new developments in lighting and can successfully incorporate low energy lighting into a design scheme. She works with architects, builders and electricians to ensure the design brief is fully met.

If she feels a project needs a dedicated lighting designer, Clare knows the very best people in the industry to call on for help or to recommend as contractors to her clients.

Clare supplies lighting from (as yet) fairly unknown designers, and from such lighting giants as Verner Panton, Swarovski and Porta Romana. She has a vast lighting library to meet her clients’ needs.

Clare also sources antique chandeliers from France and Italy and has them restored and re-wired to meet BS7671, the requirement for electrical installations.

Her long experience and large network of contacts means that Clare can source for her clients almost anything: from a ceiling twinkling with tiny fibre optics, bespoke contemporary candelabras for large open living spaces, elegant custom silk lampshades, to exact replicas as replacements for missing antique chandelier crystals.
