If you watch TV in the living room, choose the surrounding lights carefully to avoid television glare. It can be distracting to have a bright overhead light above or in front of a TV set, so ensure ceiling lights are dimmable, or use offset wall sconces or floor lamps instead. Specific task lighting, such as reading lamps, are important if you read frequently, have low levels of natural light, and especially if you ever work in your living room. A floor lamp spaced between two armchairs can also count as task lighting, as conversation is a task, too (at least in living room terms). Low-level table lamps and floor lamps help to create a cozy atmosphere in the living room, especially at night. Evenly space these throughout the room, usually toward the walls, to create an even, warm glow that bounces inwards. Think creatively about this type of lighting: groups of candles even fairy lights count.
CHOOSE A COLOR PALETTE, color will set the tone for your room. A mostly blue and green room will have a calming effect, while vibrant colors (reds, yellows, oranges) are energizing. A neutral room of whites, tans, and grays is the perfect canvas for bright, bold accents. Pick colors you'll love seeing everyday. Take a peek at your wardrobe and note the hues you gravitate toward. Or if you're keeping an important piece of art or decor, select a palette based on the main colors of that item. The living space just doesn't feel right until you've found the perfect color palette. Talented design experts weigh in to help you get started right away on picking the best colors for your living room.
Pick an accent color (or two). After you finalize the paint color for the wall, choose another color from your palette for your draperies and throw pillows. "You can choose the same color as your wall for a monochromatic look or choose a contrasting color to give it a punch," explains Han. Use the contrasting accent color for any side chairs and accessories you'd like to use in your living room. "For added fun," suggests Han, "pick interesting patterns or textures." Be loyal to your palette, If you like to continually add items to your living room, then keep a photo with you and try to stick to your original color scheme. Stay true to your palette, and your living room will always look finished!.
