The IKEA VILDAPEL plant pot made of bamboo can be used as a simple stand for recessed spot-lights. The spotlights can beam straight upward or at an angle depending on how the pots are placed. The spotlight stands can be placed below flowers or behind the couch which will make a beautiful ambilight.
A hole has to be drilled in the correct size of a recessed spot in the bottom of the plant pot for a straight-up light or in one of the sides for a diagonal beam.
I used 12 Volt multi-color recessed spots from iDual with a nice remote control which provides several nice color programs!
