You must pay attention to the light in a room. Lamp style is important, but so is the quantity. The way you light a room will completely change a space and having multiple lighting sources allows you to control ambiance, mood and how you use the room.

Get the scale right!
Lamps can add color or a statement to a room...
I love to mix is up when I design a room. Lamps are an opportunity to add something extra to a space!
