Let There Be Light

Lamp Bijoux

Every good lighting plan needs three kinds of light: ambient, task, and accent lighting. While recessed lights and ceiling fixtures may be practical, they certainly don’t add any style to the design. Lighting for kids’ rooms can accomplish several of these tasks and do it with a creative flair. The lamp to the left serves as a beautiful accent, but also provides ambient lighting for the room.
