The 9 Best Lighting Picks for Your Bedroom

Though bedrooms are primarily for sleeping, they aren’t meant to be dark all the time. A bedroom should have a combination of both portable and installed lighting to provide illumination for tasks like dressing and reading. More than that, your bedroom’s lighting should also create a calm and soothing atmosphere for relaxation. If you think about it, the lighting ideas that pertain to the rest of your home apply to the bedroom as well. br/br/Lighting experts agree that you should aim to light a room in layers. The most basic layer is general, or ambient, lighting. This allows for safe movement throughout the room and serves as a base upon which you layer the rest of your lighting design. Task lighting supplements general lighting where detailed activities take place, like reading, dressing, or applying makeup. Accent lighting highlights architectural features, artwork, or other focal points. Finally, decorative lighting creates the focal point itself, either through its fixture or the light it produces (i.e., a pattern on the wall). br/br/When planning the lighting for your bedroom, keeps two ideas in mind to help you achieve the right feel: abundance and flexibility. Multiple light sources with lower wattage are preferable to a single bright fixture. And don’t overlook the power of dimmers: Installing them can help you achieve the right mood when it’s time to wind down at the end of the day. Click through for nine types of fixtures, each with its own place and functionality when it lives in the bedroom. Then, install a medley of these bedroom lighting ideas, and you’ll be one step closer to your own oasis.I can easily imagine having a cool desk and office for my husband and I similar to the one of the photos pictured in this Bob Vila article.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and Informative, December 5, 2017
I confess that this 2017 single issue magazine that is United States Armed Forces Magazine A Salute to America’s Heroes (Centennial Legends Special Edition) caught/attracted my interest out of curiosity from my previous familiarity of getting a taste of military life (I was in active duty navy for around 8 and a half years). Anyhow, some of the following details are included in this detailed one of a kind magazine; a picture of Dwight D. Eisenhower on page 22, some information on Dwight D Eisenhower and Douglas MacArthur on page 22. I understand how I may be judged for writing this, I admit that it just dawned on me that the MacArthur Center mall in Norfolk Virginia must have been obviously named after Douglas MacArthur), a picture of Norman Schwarzkopf with his troops pictured on page 23, a feature on iconic marines that starts on page 44 (Chesty Puller,John Glenn, John Lejeune etc), Global Reach feature starts on pages 54 and 55 (an accompanying picture of the aircraft carrier the USS Carl Vinson from April 2017 around south of Japan’s Tsushi-ma Island), a picture of the United States Navy aircraft carrier Gerald R Ford on pages 56 and 57 with some of the sailors featured, another picture on page 58 of Captain Gregory Fenton of U.S. Naval Forces in Japan with some sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS George Washington in 2014, a picture of the aircraft carrier USS Bunker Hill on pages 68 and 69, pages 84 and 85 include pictures of Eddie Rickenbacker Joseph McConnell Chuck Yeager accompanying details on General Dan James Jr Jeannie M. Levitt etc. and much more info in this single issue military themed magazine.

I intend to completely watch season 1 of Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off by January 10, 2018 or sooner. However I was able to get a lot from episode 1 Fusion Impossible with Rachael Ray and Robert Irvine, and I noticed that one of the kids getting sent home was still determined in a self confident way to continue their cooking journey and even take some cooking courses.

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I admit that one of the reasons why this kindlebook of Get Smart!: How To Think and Act Like the Most Successful and Highest Paid People in Every Field Caught my Attention because of my intent to become both wiser and braver. There have been multiple opportunities for me to grow my courage/bravery muscles in all areas of my life and I have intuitively and logically noticed that some of the people who have shown courage andor bravery successfully have also expressed the bravery/courage in wise ways (whether intentionally or unintentionally). Some of the details included in the Get Smart kindlebook by Brian Tracy; thinking long-term by projecting at least 3 to 5 years and making a firm decision on which steps to take to go towards that reality/realities,writing down the details, gathering information, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, December 5, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
First off, I must make it clear that I feel blessed to have my current job and I intend to think both wisely and carefully about my long-term career future as I am intuitively aware that you bring your energy vibration with you wherever you go (plus I would obviously like to be extended at my current job for the next semester). However to express some of my thoughts both wisely and bravely, I have to look at myself in the mirror when it comes to at least two phone interviews and two in person interviews connected to my current company to where I could have had it in the bag for the year round job yet I now intend to find out more about what I need to brush up on in my interviewing skills. Fortunately just from watching The Job Interview Season 1 Episode 1 Xendoo I have seen from the men and women who bravely agreed to be televised how important and powerful self confidence can be-an area which I am in the process of improving. I also noticed in the episode a positive unexpected benefit that one of the interviewees got in the episode because of their sunny disposition and self confident outlook.

Does your idea of a dream getaway have you waking up to a mountain vista, skiing down pristine slopes, trekking tree-lined trails, or simply people-watching in quaint villages? For your next weekend road trip or holiday vacation, leave your low-altitude lodgings to live the high life in one of these beautiful American mountain towns.

Source: The 20 Best Mountain Towns in AmericaAll of these pictures featured on the Bob Vila website pertaining to The Best Mountain Towns in Every State are beautiful in their own way yet I admit that the picture featuring Sedona Arizona jumps out at me for some reason because my late adoptive mother shared with me a dream when she was still alive of visiting the Grand Canyon area in Arizona.
