Interior designers call lighting the jewelry of home décor for good reason: No room is complete without it. A statement lamp has the power to add instant personality and ambience to any space and can even make a cramped room feel bigger. When decorating my tiny living room with Decorist celebrity designer Jeremiah Brent, one of the best lessons I learned was that a carefully placed light has the power to visually trick the eye and create the illusion of space.
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.
