This picture personifies the concept of layered lighting.
There is recessed lighting for general ambient lighting,
accent lighting over the fireplace so the wreath doesn't get lost,
and table lamps for reading. The lamps have the electrical cord
at the top by the socket--it's a look.
There is also candle light. Oh, and don't forget the beautiful
chandelier. With all the different types of lighting, you can
program different "scenes" for reading, dressing, sleeping
and romance. I don't know about you, but I love options.
I was so busy looking at the lighting I forgot to comment
on just how pretty this room is. The pale blue walls, white
molding and wood floors make for a classically beautiful space.
