Living Room / March 1, 2018 / Leah Venegas
Bring a blank wall to life by hanging a series of framed photographs or prints on it. It is a simple trick but works wonders in adding a highlight to the living room. Any collection, whether it’s decorative plates, trophies or vases can replace the photographs to infuse the room with the owner’s personality.
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.
