ok, here’s the deal:
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to finally break down and repaint my room…3 walls aqua blue, one wall darkish teal.
Trouble is, once the sun starts to set, my room is now about twice as dark as it used to be (it used to be a nice peachy color). The only light in my room is from a cheapie IKEA floor lamp in one corner; my house is about 20 years old and only one of the bedrooms (not this one) has any semblance of overhead lighting. So it’s very dim in here in the evenings.
The floor lamp is in a corner where light paint meets dark paint, and the dark paint apparently just sucks the light right up. So my problem is this: since I don’t have overhead lighting, and I don’t know any/can’t afford an electrician to rewire my room for overhead lighting, what can I do to brighten things up in here a little? What kind of lamps/lighting would you suggest?
I was thinking of running to IKEA and/or Home Depot and looking at spotlights and “tree” lamps and that sort of thing…but I’m still not sure. A little help here?
