Living Room / January 12, 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.
Bring a dull living room to life by changing the curtains. Choose elegant sheers that don’t completely cut out the natural light in the area. Add wood panels to a blank white wall and clad it with tiny mirrors to create a stunning and unique art installation for the room. Step it up a notch by reupholstering the sofas with velvet.
