Light up your life: Red, orange & yellow lighting

Light it up with red, orange, yellow

Everything we see is about light -- its presence or its absence -- so the way you illuminate a room is one of the most important things you can do to instill a mood. Try out some of these lamps and lanterns to give your home something special: a warm glow, sensational shadows, a splash of color... or all of these in one!
