Lighting has an impact on the appearance and function of architecture and space more than any other decorating or design element. By using different intensities, textures and colors of light, Light Ideas can focus or divert attention, expose textures, reveal forms and express volumes within an area. With careful, thoughtful application we are committed to providing lighting design that enhances both the architecture and lives of those who utilize the spaces. Since 1981, we have worked with architects, certified electricians and demanding clients across the Southeast from first idea to final, effective results.

Owner and designer Susan Ellis Hood is a certified Lighting Consultant, a specialist trained in both the science and art of lighting. With over 30 years of experience in the industry, she is qualified to direct and manage the most exacting residential and commercial lighting projects.
