The first step when lighting any room is to ask yourself: what happens here? Different activities require different types and levels of light. A well-lit living room will have three different types of lighting: general, task and accent. These are used at different times of day and for different purposes, and key to a functional lighting scheme it to know how and when to mix and use them. Not all homes have a ceiling fitting in the living room, and if you have lots of natural light during the day, you might not need overhead light at all. But if you have the fitting, a central pendant or chandelier helps to zone the space and create a focus. Similarly, potlights or angled spotlights will create a even layer of overhead lighting. In the absence of any overhead lights, a large, arced floor lamp will do the trick.
Opt for orange, create different moods in a neutral living room with colourful accessories. This cosy burnt orange warms up the whole room and works perfectly with the iconic 1960s chair. Large squashy cushions and table lamps in the same tone create a coherent colour scheme that can be easily updated for changing seasons and trends. Stick to large ‘look at me' shapes and be bold with your colour – the porcelain background can take a punchy shade. Combine complimentary colours, deep forest green has the unusual quality of making a room feel cosy and enveloping in winter but cool and shady in summer. Bring it to life with woods and leathers that have an orangey undertone for a pairing that's direct from nature. Add in a shot or two of indigo blut and whether you create a room that's rustic or glamorous – or somewhere in between – this colour mix will exude quiet confidence. Shine bright, Cherished gold might have been the colour of 2016, but it is still hugely relevant even now. Warm and inviting , in shades that vary in intensity from spun gold to natural shades of Maize and honey, it looks great in classic and contemporary settings. Team it with wood effect wallpaper and relaxed mid century styled furniture for a cool retro feel. Mix different tones of Honeyed Oak, Maple and darker timbers to give a room depth and character. A cluster of rattan mirrors gives a nod to 70s nostalgia and makes a great wall display.
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!.
