A nicely-lit living room asks a mix of accent ambient and task lighting. In this living room, recessed fixtures cast general lighting, wall-mounted lights showcase artwork and an adjustable floor lamp provides light for reading.
Light layers must be placed to bounce illumination throughout a space and eliminate shadows. In this living room, a burnished metal chandelier furnishes visual interest and overall light. Twin sconces mirror and define the area throughout the hearth and supply soft accent lighting. A scrolling floor lamp offers task lighting for the seating area.
