It’s time to let your light shine! You may think that important lighting details should be reserved for the most prominent spaces in your home (such as the living room), but don’t overlook the significance of bedroom lighting. After all, your bedroom is your haven from the busy world outside. Shouldn’t strategic lighting help you set a soothing tone?
Today we reinforce the importance of bedroom illumination with some swanky pictures that play up the elegant drama of boudoir lighting. Featuring urban condos, deluxe hotel rooms and contemporary creature comforts, the images below reinforce the fact that your sacred space of relaxation deserves no less attention than any other room in the house!

Sometimes keeping it simple is the key. Bedside lamps work well in smaller rooms that get a lot of natural light. In these spaces, overhead lighting may not be necessary during the day, and a couple of bedside bulbs can do the trick in the evenings. Below we see a room designed by John Loecke, Inc., complete with the soft glow of white bedside lamps. [from Lonny]
Next we move to the bedroom of Jamie Laubhan-Oliver and her husband Larry Oliver. This space proves that stylish bedside lamps can help make a decor statement. It’s hard to resist a steel and gray color scheme! [from DHome]
Hanging Pendant Lights
Overhead lights add drama, and pendant lights are extra enticing with their geometric forms. Below we see two cylindrical pieces that nicely complement the room’s neutral shades. [from William Hefner Architecture, Interiors & Landscape via Houzz]
