What kind of lighting did you use here? Are they bright enough for general lighting or just more of an accent?

Low-wattage Cable lighting systems are great for general lighting & spotlighting artwork - but because, like track lighting, they're not independently controllable they're not so great for task lighting unless you don't mind having the entire string on at the same time.

As far as brightness - like any other lighting it all depends on the wattage of the bulbs you select...
...but your transformer has to be able to handle the load: if you're loading up your cable with 6 fixtures that have 50W bulbs each, you're going to need a transformer that has a minimum capacity of 300 watts, whereas those same fixtures with 20W bulbs you could get away with a less costly 150 watt transformer.

These cable lights are manufactured by Tech Lighting. They are low voltage K-Hello Head fixtures. I've attached a spec sheet for more info. K-Hello Head fixtures are highly adjustable and a great choice for open ceiling plans.

Some of the only color in the whole house: the fun pillows with a red, pink and burnt umber print. A simple cream colored sofa with contemporary lines set the overall clean tone for the space.
