Light Complements

When choosing lighting for your bedroom, remember that beyond serving an obvious function, it can also provide a stunning accent within the space. Designer Pierre Jean-Baptiste suggests choosing one primary source of lighting and then choosing smaller fixtures for soft additional lighting. "Each light can be used for a specific task or in conjunction to set the mood of the room," he says. Plus, you can easily alter the tone of the room by using a dimmer on the main source of lighting. "This gives you flexibility on those early mornings when the full light may be too bright, but if dimmers aren't an option, try a three-way bulb — the varied wattages will allow you to create the mood you want without changing out your switch."
