Regardless of what décor style you prefer, the ultimate decorating goal is usually to create a cozy, relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. This is especially true in bedrooms and living areas. There are some simple décor features you can include in any room to soften the atmosphere.
As a general rule, most rooms need task lighting, general lighting and accent lighting. Your choice of accent lighting plays a key role in creating a certain type of atmosphere in a room. Wall sconces, recessed lighting, floor lamps and table lamps help set the mood in a room. Lamp base designs as well as the shape and color of lamp shade are also details to consider. Dimmers are a great way to soften the atmosphere in a room.
