How to Light a Room the Right Way

The quality of light in your rooms is as important as every other design decision you make. Don’t use your overhead lights for anything but finding your keys. Overhead lights tend to create flat, cool lighting without nuance or glow. Instead, how do you light up your room? With table lamps! The shades provide warm diffused lighting, that cozy feeling. Floor lamps are another good option. Lamps can be colorful, sculptural, and interesting.

Wrong way, overhead lights. Right way, table and floor lighting.
