I love designing rooms and if the colours and fabrics are the rooms clothing then the lighting is the thing that makes a room really shine, the jewelery. A few statement lights can be a really simple and potentially inexpensive way to add a wow factor to a room. Firstly think big, the bigger the better, there is nothing worse than a skinny little light fitting perched apologetically in the centre of the ceiling. Secondly more is definitely more, why stop at one if you've got the room go for a line of lights. A good electrician will be able to easily put the extra feeds in.

If you want to make an impact in your dining room or have high ceilings why not hang you lights lower to add a bit of atmosphere.
For real sparkly glamour you can't beat a chandelier to add a bit of style to a room.
If your feeling a little adventurous and want something a bit more creative and perhaps Wonderland-esque how about these?
My favourite lighting suppliers at the moment are Original BTC (all british made) and designers Moooi whose light designs are future classics.
