Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
You may decide on a color theme that could involve either matching shades or contrasting primary colors. Alternatively, you may prefer a combination of wood and leather: solid wood occasional and cocktail tables, and leather sofas and chairs, whether individual pieces or sectionals. Let's have a look at some options based on leather upholstery combine with solid American woods such as maple, oak and cherry.
When choosing living furniture, most people will choose the furniture they like irrespective of the décor or the general furnishings of the room. They may see a lovely sofa with chairs to match, or a sectional unit that they can switch around as the mood takes them. However, few take the whole look of the room into consideration, or take a holistic view of furnishing their living room.
Finally, make sure you are using everything at your disposal to create the optimum living room lighting ambiance. Believe it or not, this includes the walls, rugs, curtains, and furniture too. Dark colors absorb your well-planned living room lighting options, swallowing most of its efficacy. Soft, bright shades, on the other hand, will help enhance the light. Stick to these tones when decorating your living room to create the ideal living, entertaining and relaxing area in your home.
Carefully placed mirrors not only offer a unique approach to home decor, but can also make a smaller living room look larger. By arranging the angles of reflection of a number of mirrors, you can not only make the best of the more interesting components of your living room décor, but also make the room appear much large than it is. You can use lighting along with mirrors to enhance this effect.
Not all furniture stores offer an online room planner, which is why those that do tend to be popular. By using a living room planner you can avoid becoming Victorian and retain your space and roominess while making sure that you purchase living room furniture that fits into the area you have available.
