COLOR it YOURS

Soulutions for fading daylight.
Fall is here. As we change the clocks back and lose daylight, here are some ideas to keep your rooms well-lit without re-decorating.
Hang a mirror on a wall or resting on a piece of furniture to reflect light from your brightest window.
Place a lamp (if possible) in front of the mirror.
Add an up-light to the darkest corner of a room. It can sit behind a large plant or piece of furniture.
Re-arrange furniture so reading chairs sit closer to windows to capture daylight.
Add candlelight at your focal point whether it is a fireplace, A/V unit or other furniture - use flame less candles for safety.
Hang a lighted wall sconce for accent light - flame less tea light candles are a safe option.
Add LED lighting in niches, curios and other unusual places.
Place a floor or table lamp in a dark corner and use a plug-in timer or light sensor (www.lutron.com) to turn on and off at dusk and dawn.
