To create a cozy yet sophisticated look, don’t just rely on overhead fixtures. Layer lighting throughout the room via table lamps, sconces, and floor lamps. Put a few on dimmers to change up the mood of the room.
"I always make sure there's a dimmer on every light switch, and that I have plenty of lamps throughout a space. Adjusting the lighting in a room can make it moody, cozy, romantic, relaxing, and definitely luxurious." -Julia Noran, President and Site Director, Editor at Large
Evenly spaced recessed can lights truly enhance the gold and metallic hues of this luxurious master bedroom. For additional lighting, four table lamps deliver focused task lighting around the bed and dressers. Plus, dark floor-to-ceiling draperies make it easy to shield the natural light from the window and quickly set the mood. "Think boutique hotel rooms with blackout curtains; augment with a myriad of light sources on dimmers, of course. It'll always feel like you're on vacation at home," says Jamie Laubhan-Oliver of D Home.
