Bright Ideas: Professional Lighting Secrets for Your Home
by Sharon McFarlane

On page 6: "The ceiling is also an ideal place to position ambient light. Think, for instance, of the way in which fiber optics can be used to create a "night sky" effect on a ceiling's surface, with each point of light replicating the the twinkle of a single star. It's a wonderflu look and, when used as the olnly light in the room, can make you feel as if you are relaxing under the stars. It is also possible to incorporate light into a ceiling cove or wrap it around the perimeter of the ceiling."

On page 80: "Lighting might be key to (Sharon) Marston's pieces, but she is keen that this is a hidden element, which doesn't detract or take attention away from each piece's unique look. In many instances, fiber optics have proved ideal, as using them means that there are many points of light coming from the one light source, dispersing light throughout the piece."

This allows the light source to be placed some distance from the light that is emitted, making it cool at point of delivery. Stradns can be touched, bent or used underwater."
