1. Save space with wall sconces. “With lit­tle sur­face area for lamps,” Spencer-churchill writes, “wall sconces are in­valu­able, pro­vid­ing use­ful ad­di­tional light.”

2. Keep the din­ing ta­ble for­mal and his­tor­i­cal. When en­ter­tain­ing, con­sider keep­ing to tra­di­tional can­dle and can­de­labra light­ing. This lends fes­tive, el­e­gant charm to the evening meal.

3. For the bed­room, sim­plic­ity suf­fices. “A bed­room rarely re­quires the pro­vi­sion of ad­di­tional work­ing light,” Spencer-churchill writes. A chan­de­lier, com­bined with wall sconces and lamps, will likely meet your bed­room needs.
