Fresh Ideas for Your Home By Hunter Douglas: Lamps
Lamps play a key decorative role, in addition to providing needed illumination. A beautiful room isn’t perfect until the lighting is complete. Selecting lamps is often an afterthought, but it requires as much thought as other home fashion purchases, not just for the light the lamps provide, but for the aesthetic quality they bring to your decorating scheme.
Lamps should complement the other decor in your rooms-in color, style, shape and scale. They can be simple and streamlined to blend in and not draw attention, or they can be bold, unique or ornate to become a focal point in a room.
Even the lamp shades are worthy of your attention to detail. They come in many shapes and sizes. Your selection should be compatible with the lamp’s style and scale and also shine light the way you want it diffused in your room.
Sometimes just moving your lamps around in a room can make a big change in the look of a room and how it functions. For visual interest and a broad diffusion of light, it’s most effective to use lamps of different heights.
Keep in mind, most rooms need three kinds of lighting: ambient, task and accent lighting.
