    In a previous interview with Cosmopolitan Philippines, interior designers at Tanaw Studio already mentioned that lighting is definitely a home improvement factor that deserves more attention. “People tend to stick with one lighting option: general or standard lighting.

It can also change the overall goal, ”they explained.

    To set the mood, you may want to consider getting a lamp or a dimmer. Bulbs that produce warm yellow light can also contribute to the warm atmosphere. If you are feeling a little extra, string lights add a cute touch as well.
