Lighting done right can completely transform the look and feel of a room and Annie’s all-new lighting program includes a ton of new lighting options for every part of your home. But where to start?
Chandeliers and pendant lights can help to create distinct zones within a room. Perfect for the dining room, they can also be a great addition to the living room—especially when there is not a lot of natural light—and when combined with other light sources.
Accent lighting can be used to highlight specific objects or architectural details within a room. It’s also a great way to create or define a specific mood.
Task lighting –like table and floor lamps for your living room or bedroom— is important if you if you like to read or work in those areas. Pendant lights can also serve as great task lighting for kitchen workspaces.
Consider the Hue
Just as choosing the right lamp is important in decorating a room, selecting the right bulb hue is too.
• Soft (warm) white hues are perfect for living rooms, and help create a warm, cozy feeling.
• Bright whites work well in kitchens and bathrooms, reading nooks and other workspaces.
• Don’t’ forget dimmers! A dimmer switch is a great addition to your room’s lighting scheme, and enables you to adjust the intensity of light in that space.
