How do colours contribute to the visually effect of size of a room ?

Colour is key to how the décor is perceived. If it's a big room, paint it a brighter, warmer colour to bring the walls in. Paint a smaller room a cooler colour to push the walls out. Colour also establishes visual weight and balance. If you put a bold primary-based piece of art in a pastel room, it's probably not going to seem right. The colours of the art should balance the colours of the space.In short it’s the correct mix and match of the colour schemes that brings life to your dreams together with the living comfort part of it.

Interior Lighting

Lighting design is a process. It is the process of integrating light into the fabric of architecture. Regardless of the space to be lighted— a bank, a church, an office, a gallery, a restaurant, a store, a classroom—and regardless of the light sources available for use, the process is always the same.

Electricity

Knowledge of the basic principles of electricity is necessary for understanding lighting circuitry, electrical distribution, power consumption, operating costs, switch control, and dimming control.

Luminaires

Almost all lamps require a method to curtail glare; in addition, many need a method to modify distribution.

Design

Lighting design is a process. Specifically, it is the process of integrating light into the fabric of architecture.

Perception

Perception of the world around us is based not on the quantity of light entering the eye, but on the quantity of contrast.

Psychology

Because the sense of sight is contrast sensitive, the brightness contrast of a space determines its emotional impact.

Brightness

Specifying the direction and distribution of light in a space yields the desired brightness contrast.

Color

Color is not a physical property of the things we see it is the consequence of light waves bouncing off or passing through various objects.

Daylight

The goal of daylight design is to provide visual variety with controlled brightness contrasts.

Light Control

Directional sources, commonly called reflector lamps, such as AR, MR, PAR, and R lamps, have built-in optical systems. All other electric light sources require external devices to modify their distributions in order to be useful in architectural applications.

Photometrics

It is impossible to see a foot candle. What is seen is luminance, which is a function of the amount of light falling on a surface and the reflectance of that surface, modified by the surrounding conditions and adaptation of the eyes.
