#Decorating With Lights

Lighting is one of the most important elements of interior design, without proper lighting, even the most stylish space isn't truly complete.
Lighting is essential for creating the mood and ambience of a space.
When choosing lamps, consider the style you're going for in your home first. Is it traditional? Modern? Eclectic?
Interior designer Judith Balis says:"Think of a lamp as part of the jewelry of a room.You need to select the right piece to complement the rest of the room."
