Bedroom lighting should evoke a feeling of calm. Aims for a cozy, insular atmosphere, you still need ambient lighting. Bedside table lamps or wall sconces mounted above the bedside table provide task lighting for reading in bed. If you have recessed or track fixtures, angle them away from the bed, toward the dressing area. On a low table, include a small, intimate lamp with a tinted low-wattage bulb to mimic candlelight.
