Using accent and focal lighting, you can direct the attention to your room’s signature piece. The focal piece should set the tone for the rest of the space – so if your piece is contemporary, your room’s accent pieces should compliment that design.
Layer your Lighting.Layering your light allows you to set the mood of your room based on the activity in your space -- Hosting company, watching a movie, whatever the activity, layered light allows you to offer the ‘perfect’ lighting for any task.
