How to light a large and dark living room.
October 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We need some lighting advice. Our living room has high ceilings lined with dark wood. We love the ceilings and are not interested in painting or staining them. We have a ton of windows but because we live in the redwoods most of the day we are in the shade so the natural light is pretty dim. Right now we have one ceiling fan with a two bulb light and some lamps which are not doing the trick. We are looking for ideas on more/different lighting to add to the ceiling to brighten up the room (we have to keep the ceiling fan for heat circulation) and options for around the room that will do more than a few lamps with CFL bulbs. Thank you!
