Living Room / January 12, 2018 / Leah Venegas
To give your living room a warm and comfortable appearance, pick furniture with soft curves and plush seats. Be careful however of how the piece will look in relation to the size of your living room. While heavy carved wooden furniture will complement a spacious living room, it might overpower a compact living room. These smaller living rooms are better suited to light, contemporary furniture. Instead of choosing regular rectangular coffee tables, pick a table that is rounded or organic shaped.
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.
