Elegant Accessories

A delicate chandelier over each bedside table brings a touch of elegance to this earthy master bedroom. A bright wall of windows shows off a stunning view of the desert, a look that is echoed in the nature-inspired decor and colors found in the room.

Funky Fixtures

The traditional reading lamp is given a stylish twist with a pair of mid-century modern globe lights fixed to either side of the bed, which is the perfect solution for a bedroom that lacks the space for bedside tables.

Illuminating Combination

Three gorgeous chandeliers light this sexy master bedroom designed by Lindsay Pumpa. The eclectic mix lends a dreamy, whimsical touch to the luxurious space.

Deliberate Design

Recessed ambient lighting just above the bed creates a soft glow in this traditional master bedroom. A large mirror leaned against the well helps to reflect the light while also making the room appear larger.

Enchanting Atmosphere

The perfect combination of lamps, sconces and a stunning chandelier creates a soft, romantic atmosphere in this roomy master bedroom.

Sunshiny Day

While an abundance of sunshine is the primary source of light in this delightful bedroom by designer Lindsay Pumpa, stylish bedside lamps featuring metallic branch bases offer just enough task lighting for reading.

Smart Space

Space is at a premium in this eclectic bedroom by designer Ashley DeLapp. Personal, mounted lights assure each bed receives adequate light without sacrificing space on the shared nightstand.

Work of Art

A backlit panel hung from the ceiling creates depth and interest in this modern bedroom by designer Andreas Charalambous. White walls and a white ceiling keep the room bright and draw focus to the interesting accent lighting and vibrant artwork above the bed.

Bold and Bright

A beautiful bronze drum chandelier is the main source of light in this colorful master bedroom that is full of eye-catching patterns. Apple red lamps adorn the bedside tables and give the room an extra dose of color. Design by Ashley DeLapp

Let Light In

Ideal for early risers, gorgeous, large windows offer plenty of natural light in this contemporary master suite, while simple bedside lamps provide extra task lighting when needed.

Luminous Details

This calming bedroom design by Emily Henderson is full of little details that add major impact. Wooden accessories, delicate wallpaper and an ultra-chic globe light give the room a rustic contemporary vibe.
