I’ll let you in on a little secret that designers use to get that photo-ready finish in a home: layers of light. Just like with clothing and accessories in fashion when creating your interior lighting scheme layering your light sources helps create a rich look that highlights great features and eliminates harsh shadowing. To do that you’ll need an approach that combines many different styles of fixtures and sources.
A floor lamp nestled against a window is a smart substitute for daylight so that when the sun goes down an ambient glow will pour in from a similar direction to balance the central light overhead.
Putting a light fixture in a bright hue in an otherwise simple room can add some fun and interest to the space. Colored shades can work wonders especially when the light is turned on.
