Young America Accessory Round Up: Lighting ideas for a Child’s Bedroom
Lighting is an important aspect in the design of any room, especially a child’s room. The style of a light fixture will impact the overall look and feel of the space. In addition to a central lighting fixture, accent lighting can add mood and personality to the ambiance. There are so many options… night lights, twinkle lights, colorful lights…the possibilities are endless. Task lighting is also important, in particular, with older children who use their rooms for reading and doing homework.
Let’s take a look at some ideas for lighting…
