Wacky Wall Lighting - Need Ideas!

My studio apartment has some amazing natural light - during the day, anyway! But it lacks overhead lights of any kind in the main room. I currently have three lamps that do a good job of keeping most of the apartment well-lit. But as we are getting closer to darkness descending at 5 pm and not 7 or 8 pm, I need to find a solution to having very little light in this section of the apartment:
See - no lamps in sight!
I don't want the bulk of a floor lamp, nor do I want a huge wall sconce. So I'm thinking outside the box on this one and exploring some wacky wall lighting! Here are a few of my ideas:

Have you come across any lighting techniques that might solve my problem? Space-saving is key, of course!


  1. whatever you chose, make sure it is easy to turn on! You probably wont bother reaching down for an outlet or lighting candles

    1. Good point about the candles...rules that one out!

      The outlet is really easy to reach, so plugging in a string of lights won't be too difficult. Maybe I can get a string of lights with one of those foot pedals to turn it on with? We had those for our Christmas tree.
