(pronounced LAM-behnt)

This word seems so soft and calming (like a little lamb), which is somewhat of an indication of its meaning. To remember this word, think of the first three letters, then add a letter “p”, as in “lamp,” which then leads you to the idea of light. (Stay with us.) Lambent essentially means flickering – it could be light play on a surface or even a warm expression on one’s face. Something that is lambent is radiant and glowing, but in a gentle way.

Example: Julie’s vision for her client’s spa was that of a lambent entry way, which would gently draw guests into a sanctuary of serenity.
