Keep the overhead light at 150 to 300 watts for optimum illumination. Mix and match your lighting fixtures. They don’t have to be from the same lighting family or design. Notice how in this room the star motif overhead — a look that is trending now — the night table lamps and candle wall sconces mix styles.
