This technique works especially well in dining rooms, where you can use the chair rail as a decorative area for pictures, collectibles, and colors can be coordinated with seating and dining room table decor.
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!
Your bedroom is the one place in the house that the ambiance is not about your guests, but about the inhabitant. Bedrooms are personal and we love them to be dramatic, romantic, modern, or a little bit crazy! Whichever is your design style; lighting can set the mood and transform your space instantly once the sun goes down.
Use exterior wall sconces for décor: Outdoor lighting doesn’t have to only be utilitarian. Wall sconces can provide washes of light against the exterior walls of your home to create ambiance in the evening hours.
