Mood Lighting

While recessed and decorative ceiling fixtures do a great job illuminating a space, their effect can be intense and impersonal. So, here's a bright idea to help make your home more inviting–softer lighting! Try installing dimmers on your overhead lights, or rely solely on lamps when you entertain or relax. Their warm glow will create a cozy atmosphere, and your guests will respond to your mellow mood the moment they walk in the door.
And remember: the final layer is all about you, so as you're picking out lamps, choose the ones that best showcase your style and complement your color story. Also, make sure their shades are narrower than the tables they'll sit atop. And if you're trying to create a candlelight glow effect, fight your urge for white and select a shade with a little more color. Even basic linen will diffuse light and create a warmer feel.
