Living Room / March 1, 2018 / Leah Venegas
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.
One way to make a room look elegant and well-designed is to let one colour dominate the space. A sophisticated shade such as dark grey is the perfect option for bringing modernity into the hall. Of course, you can always use subtle accents such as colourful throws and cushions to break the monotony.
