Help me give my students the calm, cozy environment I hope for them to experience with soft lamps and cafe lights in the classroom!

I work with students who are learning English as a second language. I teach a class of each grade level of 1st grade students up to 5th grade students. I also work with Kindergarten students in small groups. My students come from all over the world with different backgrounds and experiences. They amaze me every day with their resilience and hard work.
One of the most rewarding parts of my job is having students who come with no English vocabulary be able to chat with me about their weekends by the end the year.
With some of my students come from war torn countries or dangerous situations and I want my ESL classroom to be a warm, inviting, and comfortable place for them to learn and grow!
I have wanted to change the lighting in my classroom for years. The florescent lights are hard on my students eyes and often times they ask me to dim or turn off the lights. Adding cafe lights and lamps around the classroom would make my classroom feel more like a home away from home.
This year I have worked hard on adding plants, cozy spots to read, and just making the classroom more inviting and friendly for learning.
The addition of lamps and cafe lights are always something I felt would make students feel at home and allow for them to relax and enjoy learning.
