Light walls and wall shoji

Just finished a shoji that will be added to two already built and installed. We've done that a few times so I thought I'd put up a post and add light walls. Often when clients put a shoji over a wall surface they will add lighting (like rope lighting) behind to brighten the area.

The picture below shows the additional shoji screen installed over the wall on the right - I believe they were going to add lighting behind this shoji panel since the ceiling light above only illuminates the two sliding shoji doors.

This picture (below) is of a dark basement well window that the client wanted to brighten up so they installed lighting around the edges to illuminate the shoji. 

There are more but I don't have pictures of them all installed. Below is the largest light wall of shoji I have a picture of. It's been a few years so I can't remember if this was a dark basement or attic that was turned into a family room.
