Directional sconces pointing upwards or downwards can focus on architectural elements on your home, and draw attention to exterior niches and plantings around your home.
If you have only light colored walls in your home because you are concerned that dark walls will make your space feel closed in or cave-like, you are not alone. Many steer away from dark colored interiors, in hopes to make their room feel more inviting and welcoming.
Colored lighting: Colored lighting can be from cool lava lamps to subtle pink light bulbs in your adjoining sitting area for a calming effect. Colored lamp shades, glass globes and light bulbs cast a beautiful glow into your bedroom and that can relax or inspire!
For large, dramatic artwork consider directional lighting that casts directly on the piece. For sculptural pieces, floor directional lighting aimed up can bring drama and visual interest.
