Doreen Le May Madden - Lux Lighting Design

This is not the best scenario for a one function space, for reasons mentioned by dreamdoctor, but if you need to absolutely have this as one room, you need to create and extend the line of the lower ceiling visually into the higher ceiling space. You can do this with paint, valance lighting, or fabric. You could also have a more formal side with a more casual dining side, but I am not sure if this is what you intend.

Any advice on how best to light a walk-in closet? Recessed lighting seems like it won't hit the hanging clothes at perimeter of closet. I'm actually thinking track lighting might work best as can be adjusted at angles. Anyone?

I don't get too excited about closet lighting - I have bare bulb fixtures. Consider daylight spectrum, linear LEDs like they have in the clothing stores, so you see the true colors of the clothes and have plenty of light.
