Turn your lights down low
And pull your window curtain
Oh let jah moon come shining in
Take it from Bob and Neil, lighting is essential when creating the right mood at your party.
In previous posts on Party Architecture, we covered Density, or having the right number of people in your space for the type of party; and Structure, or arranging your apartment so guests can mix and move. A third tenet, lighting, complements density and structure and, over the course of an evening, subtly signals where the party is heading.
