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.

Classic and Chic



Despite the homeowner's apprehension, an old metal chandelier was spray painted to serve as the focal point of this room, helping to transform a desperate and drab master bedroom into a romantic, unique retreat. Design by Lise Simms and Daniel Kucan.

High Style Sparkle



An expanse of marble countertop like this one calls for ample, beautiful lighting. A classic, over-the-top chandelier takes this traditional kitchen to the next level. Design by Lori Gilder.

Family Room Functional



Vern Yip isn't one to skimp in the lighting department. This dramatic chandelier is also family-friendly, designed to shine brightly for activities and to dim at day's end.
