We have a bedroom with a celing fan fixture, but the
ceiling lights were removed from the fixture by the previous
owner. Thus, the room is poorly lit and has no overhead lighting.

Thanks for any advice!
Well table lamps, floor lamps or replacing the removed ceiling fixtures

to do with my irises.
I wonder if one of those torch lights that point up would do as well
as a ceiling fixture, if you have white walls and ceiling. Not sure.
