Pick Lighting That Doubles as Art
Many people worry about choosing the perfect painting to hang on the walls, which is why some hotels skip it altogether and hang a bold chandelier in the lobby. These lights do double-duty, brightening the room while catching your attention.

If you're looking for an overhead light, try a rock crystal style over the classic chandelier or uber-trendy star pendant.
