A well lighted place...

I've noticed that lighting is one of those things that people seem to forget about. Either they don't want to invest the money needed to have "one of a kind" light fixtures, or, as is more often the case, they don't realize how bad the lighting in their home is! Think of it this way, when you go to a romantic restaurant, have you ever noticed how soft the lighting is and how GOOD you look? When you go to the butcher's have you noticed how bright red the meats are? Then you get them home and they don't look as good? It's because they have special lighting to make the meat look it's best! So, I know it is a little gross, but apply that logic to your home. A well lighted home makes everything look better. Often people have not enough light, but you can have too much too. Try and think about what function you will perform most in each room and light it accordingly; a kitchen will need lots of light coming from lots of directions to avoid shadows, a bedroom -not so much. An area where you read may need a task light and multiple sources that can be dimmed when needed and brightened at other times.
Here are a few light fixtures that I find inspiring:
