Design and Decorate with Lighting
The Eiffel Tower was dedicated in 1889 in Paris, the city of lights. Paris is known for it’s clever use of illumination to create breathtaking views and dazzling sights. If you’ve got a drab room that needs sprucing up, take a page out of Paris’ book; start decorating and designing with lighting.
Today there are hundreds of lighting options to give rooms a whole new and exciting look. Inexpensive can-type lights sit on the floor behind a table or chair or under a plant and create dramatic effects on walls and ceilings. There are new floor lamps, clip-ons and track lights with halogen, incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. Many use dimmers to capture just the right mood. Take a trip to your local furniture and hardware stores to see what’s new.
