How lighting your home room by room can make all the difference

Create a Living Space That Makes You Feel Good to Stay at Home

Summer of 2020. You’re home. The weather is great. What a wonderful time for a staycation! Instead of an actual getaway, make sure your home has all the amenities for creating the perfect retreat for your family.

A beautiful, well-lit game room or media room, complete with your big screen TV, plenty of puzzles, games and wonderful books to read. And, oh yes, good lighting that is both decorative and useful. A multi-armed chandelier or pendant with a shade with great depth will illuminate the room, while a well-placed floor lamp or table lamp can light up a comfy armchair – perfect for curling up and reading or talking on the phone. Create a space that is calming, serene and relaxing.

To make the most out of your living space – consider a few minor modifications. Besides making sure your lighting is integral, a newly reupholstered chair, a comfy footrest, maybe some new bookshelves for all those bestsellers you intend to dig into – you will be surprised how much of a difference small changes can make in staying home. Add a plush throw blanket, or two, to wrap up in, and make sure your couch is comfy with plenty of squishy pillows. If the weather is getting chilly, a fireplace or woodstove adds to the coziness of the room itself and the warmth emitted relaxes all who enter.  Make sure your walls are painted with shades that transmit a calm and stress-free atmosphere in which to totally unwind.

The whole point is to make sure your interior home design is providing you and your family with an ambience to de-stress and be your best for those with whom you love and care for.
