For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
It is not necessary to stick with the same decor style - unless you want to make a strong statement about that particular style. If updating a traditional room - a contemporary or modern lamp may be the right choice. But, be sure to relate the existing decor in some manner - through color, scale, and/or material. Typically, conical shaped shades provide a more traditional look, whereas a drum shade provides a more modern look.
Bedroom lamps: If you don't have overhead lights in your bedroom, use floor lamps. It's also wise that you install bedside lamps. In addition to complimenting the look of the house, also ensure that they are smaller than those in the living room. To avoid the asymmetrical look ensure that the table lamp doesn't overwhelm the nightstand that you place it on.
