For some households, there is this debate: white lights or colored lights on a Christmas tree? Well, with the Philips Festavia lighting from Hue, you can have both! And so much more. To see what I mean, see this piece in The Verge.
I am a big fan of Philips Hue lighting. I bought a wide assortment of bulbs over 5 years ago and I use them daily and they are still going strong. So while these lights ain’t cheap, they may last you a long time. And give you much joy for years to come.
I love lamps and lighting. I have been known to have too many lamps in a room just because I can’t decide on one. If you are the opposite and in need of some lighting inspiration, I recommend this: Bring your home to life with these minimal 3D-printed Gantri lighting designs! – Yanko Design. That piece features quite a few different lights, including the one above. Simple and beautiful.
You may not be able to find these specific lamps, but they may lead you to some you might, be they at IKEA or some high end lighting place.
If you have Philips Hue products or are thinking of getting them, then I recommend you read this: Philips Hue super guide: How to set up and use your Hue lights.
The Hue is a great product, but it may not be the easiest thing to set up. This guide will help.
This, a Simple Lamp that Requires No Hardware by Emmanuel Gonzalez, is really as beautiful as it is simple.

Not so how to oriented, but this handful of links might give you some ideas and inspiration to improve your place:
Now that you are inspired, here are some good links I found for buying furniture:
Or if you want to build vs buy furniture, you might want these links:
Finally, if you are not so much into furnishing your place but more into painting it, then consider these few links:

For example, following the article, the image that the webcam produces goes from the bluish one on the right to the better looking one on the right.
Well worth reading.
