A home, I believe, is a reflection of who we are and lighting up your space with a little attention to detail can cheer you up like nothing else can.
Here are a few good tips to keep in mind when you think of lighting your home. Always have a provision spotlight on the wall that shows off photographs or paintings. Invest in one good central light and take your time while selecting this. It can be modern or traditional piece to go with the decor of your home. From a conventional chandelier to Moroccan lanterns, from paper globes from Auroville to a modern assembly of bulbs, the options are endless. For your dining table, choose a ceiling downlighter or a floor uplighter. A cane lamp or an industrial metal one or a suspended plank above your table packed with candles of different types...again choose what works for you.
These days, string light art is a big deal with people putting them in bottles, making shapes with them on walls, highlighting plain drapes with them, wrapping them around bed posts and more. An alternative way to light up your dresser or mirror in bedroom could be to use LED string lights as they give a wonderful twist to a functional space and imbue it with romance.
