Although floor lamps and table lamps obviously differ in their typical size and placement both have the ability to add gentle task lighting for reading while also infusing a general glow wherever they stand targeting anywhere from the center of a room (say on a sofa table) to a dim corner.
Painting with light is another way to add surprise. Here colored LED lighting with toe kick lights underneath the island and cabinets creates dramatic appeal.
Candles also offer wonderful sparkle and set a distinctly relaxing romantic tone. Just make sure you keep them well away from any flammable objects such as towels and hair and never leave them unattended.
