A perfectly lit room has three basic layers: overhead lighting task lighting and accent lighting. This bedroom pulls all those together — the chandelier for overhead bedside reading lamps as task lighting and accent lights above the headboard and artwork.
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.
Bright ideas for current lighting styles: Consider replacing your ceiling fans with eye-catching chandeliers. 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.
