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