From the moment you wake up to the moment you fall asleep, lighting is essential to getting through your day. When natural sunlight is unavailable, a calming bedroom light is your only solace. In Taos, we like to make our bedrooms as peaceful as the landscapes around us, so our lighting choice often reflects this gentle, soothing environment.
Here are our recommendations for calming bedroom lights:
If you’re looking for the perfect reading light, look no further than the Comfy Eyes Table Lamp. The modern design features a sleek bronze finish and a flexible neck that makes it easy to maneuver while in bed. Most importantly for readers, the full-spectrum Compact Fluorescent Lamp has been scientifically proven to increase visual clarity and reduce eyestrain. With such comfortable lighting, you might stay up late reading longer than expected!
An all-white table lamp might not appeal to you immediately until you discover its hidden secret: the night light. The White Glass Lamp, with its glossy white finish, cotton white shade, and silver cord is versatile enough to match almost any modern bedroom décor. The night light makes it even more compelling because it improves the quality of late night tasks and minimizes strain when your eyes are most sensitive. It’s your ‘white knight’ in the dead of night (cheesy, but true)!
Large Tower Lamp
At four feet tall, the Large Tower Lamp would stand prominently in your bedroom. While that might seem standoffish at first, the soft lighting it exudes makes it rather appealing and inviting as if the sun is peaking over the mountaintops behind Taos. In addition this lamp is a product of fair trade, uses eco-friendly material and has handmade attributes. If you’re looking for a gentle light to fill a void in your bedroom, this large tower is your ticket.
You can breathe deep knowing that this lamp and its modern Zen design are available for your bedroom. The Wright 1 Light Table Lamp embraces Asian inspiration, clean lines and tapered arches to create a soothing light for a bedside table. With warm-toned shading and an oil-rubbed bronze coating, it feels like you’ve brought a little piece of paradise to your large Taos bedroom – along with all the peace and serenity that comes with it. Namaste!
Sometimes the most calming bedroom is the most functional one. The Callahan Torchiere is your classic floor lamp with a twist and places emphasis on a balance of function and style. The main lamp features an aged bronze base topped with a large smooth glass shade for standard lighting. Attached to its hip is a smaller lamp designed for task lighting. The understated details and traditional motifs make this floor lamp perfect for any bedroom décor.
The importance of bedroom lighting cannot be overstated, especially during these cool autumn and winter days. As night falls in New Mexico, your bedroom becomes a haven for reading, relaxing and sleeping and our Taos Lifestyle lighting options can help you maintain that calming feel you desire.
