Conceptual Designs Conceptual designs use a simile or metaphor to create a visual or mental image that illustrates the design goal. The concept should be open and flexible enough to allow for changes as the design develops. The concept is not a prescription for the design, but rather a guide that is referred to frequently during the design process. For example: At night the building should glow like light leaving a lantern.

Grazing walls with light to reveal texture creates highlights and shadows that can be very interesting, and may provide a localized increase in brightness. Decorative fixtures can add new materials, shapes, and colors to a space (and should be coordinated with the architect and/or interior designer). These techniques, and others, add variety and contrast to a space, making it more interesting and appealing than it would be without them. Thinking about Luminaires Light fixtures, or luminaires, are visible to the occupants of a space and therefore become a part of the interior design.
