Step One: Lighting
Place a light in three different areas in a room, in a triangle pattern. These can be table lamps, floor lamps or candles.
Even if this is the only thing you do---your room will feel more cozy.
Now, you have to have the lights turned on! Using these instead of the ceiling fixture will create a more intimate atmosphere. A warm inviting space.
You will find that you want to spend more time in that room.
Notice the lighting, it creates a warm and inviting feeling. Now there are other specific principles that made a difference in this room. But for now we are looking at how the lamp and the candle change the whole feeling of this room.
