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.
Hammer Heads carpenter Carmen De La Paz says, "Another mistake that homeowners will often make is not taking into consideration the lighting in their home. The lighting in your home can completely change the colors, the feeling, the ambiance."
Designed to Sell's Lisa LaPorta adds, "There are really three main types of lighting: general lighting, task lighting and drama or accent lighting. You need a combination to have a really good end design."
If your crib is situated in a dark portion of your nursery, a pendant light may be a great option. For safety, hang the pendant on the far end of the crib and high enough that’s it’s out of baby’s reach. Woven, basket-like pendants made of materials like wicker or rattan are totally on-trend, and their natural color can blend with just about any color palette.
