General Points for lighting
The ceiling is the barest part of all rooms. Consider an eye-catching pendant be it; a strong design statement, a suitable classic in time with the house style or something dramatic, classical or comical.
Matching Lamps suggest balance and symmetry.
Do not under budget for lighting. Many people over budget for carpets, flooring and furniture. The ceiling is an opportunity to decorate also.
Classic shapes are easy to live with. Blue and white lamps are a safe key piece in decoration.
Use smaller shades to show off lamp bases and economise on space. Consider oval or rectangular shades.
Smaller shades will enable the use of accent colours without dominating.
Darker shade = less light. Soft shade = less light. A light coloured, hard lined shade is best for maximum light.
Match your shade to your lamp, not your shade to your room colours. Consider it as an individual item.
Not a hard and fast rule, but just another way to look at it. The only rule is no rules.
