When it comes to interiors, we all have our weaknesses, and good lighting is mine (okay, one of mine). Carefully applied, the right lighting can elevate any space, making it seem bigger, more welcoming, cleaner, more modern, more expensive — you name it, good lighting can probably do it. Similarly, poorly planned lighting can often let down an otherwise beautiful room.

I've found that the best way to ensure your lighting falls on the right side of that equation is to plan it early, and keep it simple. The simple, chic lighting rounded up here is neither aggressively modern nor stuck in the past; it's just there, lookin' good and doing its job.
