A bedroom is perhaps the most intimate of rooms in a house. Nothing speaks of your personality more than a bedroom. From the art adorning your walls to the furniture filling up the space – your bedroom is a sweet haven of your own unique style.

Lighting is one of the most important factors contributing to a bedroom’s overall ambience. Different types of bedroom lighting options are available to create effects ranging from dramatic and romantic to relaxing and functional. That’s perhaps the reason why a bedroom typically has multiple lighting options.

Lamps are a perfect addition to a bedroom space. You can use lamps in various styles and finishes for decorative or functional purposes. Not only can lamps be used to showcase a bedroom’s style, but they also serve as additional sources of light when you want to entertain, read, write, or work.

Following are 10 lighting ideas for your bedroom. Created by international designers, these 10 lamps are artistic masterpieces guaranteed to lend your bedroom that "je ne sais quoi".

1. IC Lights C/W by Michael Anastassiades for the elegant couple’s bedroom. Available as a wall or ceiling fixture, use it as a single piece or create a family of IC lights to add class to your personal space.

2. Smithfield C by Jasper Morrison for the minimalistic bedroom. The direct light this ceiling mounted lamp provides is perfect to illuminate your work corner. This unpretentious lamp is available in both dimmable and non-dimmable options.

3. Guns Bedside by Philippe Starck for the eternal bachelor’s (or bachelor "at heart"). The bold design of this lamp is perfect for the confident single man not afraid to make bold decorative choices.
