Q: I have a small bedroom with putty colored walls and poor natural light. What are some ways I can make it warm and cozy? A: First, use lots of white (white sheets, white furniture, white lampshades) and make sure it’s consistent. If it’s just here and there, it will look sloppy and you’ll lose the sleek lines you were going for. Second, opt for a glass overhead fixture. In any tight space, glass pieces are functional, reflect light, and won’t weigh down a room. Third, repaint the room in a semi-gloss paint in lieu of a flat paint. It shows more flaws, but the gloss reflects the light and makes a dark room seem brighter.
