Ambient lighting is provided by 13 downlights, lamps using myAmbience MR16 LED Bulbs.
The TV area was shifted to the opposite wall to create a space for the study. We now have a separately lighted space for the kids to do their work in the living room. That Ledino series lamp really floods the study table with enough light to work with. And it gives off very little heat too.
The kids have pretty much taken over the study area. They know how to turn on the Ledino lamp when they need to study there, or do their little paper projects. Joy even made a little tent there with her blanket and she and her brother "camped" beneath the table. When they are not using the space, the light is turned off and we rely on the ambient lighting to do stuff like watch tv.
At the play area, a very cute light with moon and stars was installed.
If you look to the left of the top photo, there is a Philips Decorative Presentation Fruit Platter. A little bit of whimsical fun, I thought.
To the left of the second photo, on my shelf of DVDs and CDs, are Philips IMAGEO CandleLights. These are really neat LED "candle lights" that are battery operated. You turn them on with a tilt. Because they are LED, they give off almost no heat and you can recharge the candles using the included induction charger.
The kids enjoyed playing with the candles that I had to stop them from doing it too much for fear they would drop my new toys. The wife now leaves them on in the house at night so that when I come home late, I can see my way around the living room.
My bicycles are now mounted on the wall, and lit with a Philips LivingColors LED lamp that comes with a remote and changes colour. Now my bicycles are no longer something the wife will complain as being in the way, but objects for display.
I also notice significantly less glare from the new LED light bulbs. I am going to look forward to less bulb changes (LEDs last for years and years) and the lower electricity bill.
My wife also got a Philips LED Reading Light to use for her Nook ebook (and paper books). It really lit up the reading area evenly.
We have gotten used to having different lights for different parts of the living room, as per our needs. I am such a fan of LED lighting solutions now that I bought other Philips LED lights for my kitchen dining area.
It's like getting a whole new living room, really. I think we are going to enjoy our newly lit space.
