Problem #5: Not Enough Light. It's particularly important in the living room, where we often spend quite a bit of time. However it's a tricky space to strike the right lighting balance, thanks to the many different functions the living room serves. Small homes are often lacking natural light because of two reasons: Builders know that windows are expensive, and they also know that they take up valuable wall space, and well, there's only so much of that in a small space already. Solutions: Don't take up too much valuable floor or table space with lamps. Choose recessed, wall-mounted, hanging or shelf-mounted lighting. Floor up-lighting is also a great way to enhance a small space. When decorating a small living room that doesn't have a lot of natural light, choosing light shades of flooring, furnishings, walls and decor can do a lot to brighten your space.
Living rooms serve different purposes for different people. In some homes they serve as the main gathering area for family, while in others they're more of a show room, used only when company comes over. Either way, there are certain issues that always come up when trying to arrange living room furniture. Check out these tips for placing furniture in your living room. Step back and look at your existing furniture and decor. To make space, get rid of furniture that's damaged, outdated, too large, too small, or that you just don't like anymore. If it's a family heirloom or a piece you want to keep that doesn't fit in the living room, give it a new spot somewhere else in your house.
Traditional, when we think of traditional, country or classic homes, white isn't the first shade to spring to mind—we're more likely to consider deeper shades and neutrals. But white can look great in an older home, particularly when showing off wall panelling (like the swoon-worthy moldings in the above image from d-raw) or shiplap to its best advantage. Boho, when I think of bohemian style, I generally think of color and texture. In fact, many colors and textures layered over each other, with a healthy smattering of house plants to boot. All that visual interest looks its best and brightest when set off by crisp white walls, don't you think? A clean palette of white and neutrals might just be the perfect backdrop for relaxing and kicking back in your very own "she shed".
