Decorative lighting can be used to highlight architectural features. Without the additional lighting around this fireplace, it's just a large stone surround. The downlights around the firebox strengthen the contrast between the smooth and rough surfaces, while the uplights on top feature the graceful curve of the entire structure.

Lighten up. Accent lighting above this firebox is situated against the back wall to create a scalloping visual effect. The indirect lighting at the top of the fireplace points upward and spills onto the ceiling. Tip: Designing the fireplace in the same color family as the adjacent walls allows the lighting to become the focal point.
