Let me guess - most of the rooms in your home have one light fixture in the center of the ceiling and no other source of light in the room. 

That one fixture provides the bare minimum when it comes to lighting your room.  

In order to have good lighting in your home, you should have more than one light fixture. 

Having multiple sources of light not only looks better, but it allows you to customize the lighting per the time of day and activity in the room. 

Use at least two of the following types of lighting in each room to have proper lighting in your home.

Most of the people I meet want their homes to look like a design magazine, but they don't know where to start when it comes to home styling. 

Even if they have lots of pretty things, they don't know how to put them together correctly to get a designer look. 

I am going to let you in on one of my designer secrets for home styling. 

This technique uses tall, medium, and short items to create a designer look. 

This method is especially relevant when decorating a dresser, night stand, coffee table, sideboard, fireplace, or entry table.
