Soft bedroom lighting can be from several sources. The best bet is to have more than one option/source for your lighting so that it can be customized for mood, reading, tasks, etc..

Consider having reading lights at the sides of the bed. 3 way bulbs are a good option for varying degrees of lighting. Wall sconces on either side of the bed can be for ambiance and/or task lighting.

For overhead ambient lighting choose a pendant fixture, recessed can lights or even a soothing chandelier (not the huge one's that go in a grand foyer).

Depending on how large your bedroom is you can also have wall washing lights in a soft wattage from behind the bed, or soft cove lights from overhead in a tray ceiling.
