Light up my house

As I have said before, my husband and I are looking to fix up our house. Besides needing windows, we also need more light fixtures. Half of the living room area is lit pretty well but the other half is dark. While the darkness is good for keeping glare off the television, it makes it difficult to do anything else in that part of the room. You can't snuggle up and read a book over there. It'll be nice when we can finally use that part of the room for something other than just watching tv.
