New ambient lighting.
Currently listening to The Yes Album, on vinyl, the way it should be.
I value low level ambient lighting instead of overhead single bulbs
Some historic home I toured had similar lighting, but all the way around the room, and with the actual lights hidden behind a ridgeline, so only the softer reflections could be seen directly. It was a very nice effect.
I have been wanting to do this kind of thing too! But I am hoping for more responses and Ideas from others here.
I have a friend who put painted guttering around the room, in his basement, and layed the light strips inside the guttering. This had a nice glow around the perimeter .
No, the proper way is Black Lights, Glowing Posters, and a Strobe, along with various Lava Lamps
We have a Philips Hue system, I recently purchased a Hue Go portable wireless light that is quite good even on its own without being connected to a bridge. I haven't taken pics though, here's a pic of the light from he web...it can be quite bright, enough to illuminate an entire room any colour you wish.
I have hue lights around the house. In the office, I have a couple of their strips behind the monitors. I have some cheaper LEDs connected to the back of my Expedit bookshelves in the living room, but I much prefer the Hues.
I'm with these guys. Lights like you already have, placed inside a channel or gutter along the perimeter of the room would work great.
MY rule of thumb with most lighting in my home is that I do NOT want to see any portion of the actual bulb, only the light reflected off walls and surfaces. There's exceptions of course, but you will find me using a lot of uplights and such in the home. Where I cannot do that I'll use fabric shades or frosted glass shades to shield me from seeing the bulb, and to soften and even out the light.
