Hang string lights above your bed

Warm lighting can help set the mood in your room. Aside from the usual table and floor lamps, you may add a whimsical touch to your space by hanging string lighs. You can use Christmas lights with warm colors to make it work.

RL Tip: If there's no nearby outlet, you may use extension cords! Just remember to consult with an electrician if there are electrical concerns and problems.
