Oscar de la Renta may have said it best: "The most important thing? Perfect lighting at all times." The lighting in a home changes the mood of a room just as it does the perceived size of a room. And when decorating, people usually focus on furniture, carpentry and walls, but lights come as an afterthought. However, the power of good lighting plays a crucial part in one's home.

Effective lighting will make your spaces more livable, help create a sense of space, and let you play around with the atmosphere to suit your mood. And the key to good lighting is layering. It's all about striking the right balance between these three must-have types of lighting—ambient, task, and accent.

So shine on, scroll down, and discover our solutions to light the way.
