Lighten Up in the Living Room
For tips on designing a lighting plan, take a look at the living room in the 2009 HGTV Dream Home. A minimal yet impactful chandelier is the centerpiece overhead. An assortment of reading lamps offers task lighting. The library bookcase illuminates what's inside, and candles are at the ready for a romantic night in or an intimate gathering with friends. Design by Linda Woodrum.
