Living Room / March 6, 2018 / Priscilla Douglass
Planning a light scheme for the living room is a crucial part of designing the living room. A living room should typically have three types of lighting; an ambient light scheme, focus lights for wall art and curios and task lights in the form of table lamps. While the light itself enhances the room, sometimes the source of this light need not be seen. Cove lighting is a style of ambient lighting that has become very popular. This style of lighting is muted but gives the living room a stylish edge. When it comes to picking a table lamp, there are a number of styles to choose amongst. While a lamp base is ornamental, the lamp shade has a more functional purpose and its style determines the amount and direction of light emitted.
If the living room has a beautiful view, then shifting the focus to highlight it can completely transform the ambiance of the space. Change the windows to optimise the scenery outside. Picture windows are ideal. Instead of curtains, install blinds so that nothing hinders the view.
