Here’s another prime example of how to mix different types of lighting (directional vs. ambient): You’ll notice that the floor lamp in the room above falls under the "ambient" category because the fabric lampshade would delicately diffuse light around the space. This lights a room more thoroughly, as opposed to the task lamp on the desk. The hard metal shade means no light can escape except for in the direction it’s pointing (hence, directional lighting). These are really great lamp types for reading, working, doing anything hobby-ish. The light is strong and bright right where you need it (and basically nowhere else). You’ll want to be sure this type of lamp is low enough (or can be directed down) that it doesn’t blind you.
Identify the existing colors in your room – and the color of any metal accents. This will typically be your palette. Try to stick to 3 main colors at most. Occasionally, if you have a monochromatic color scheme (1 basic color), you might use a floor lamp to introduce another color. Choosing a metal such as silver, brass, gold, bronze is also a good option. If your walls are white – you may want to consider using a lampshade that is a little darker so that there is some contrast to the wall.
