Your living room need not be furnished and decorated to a specific historical period, but should at least appear to be matched and perhaps follow a certain theme in terms of color or period. For example, Amish furniture looks best in a plainly decorated room, and would look out of place with lush drapes, heavily patterned carpets or event brightly painted walls.
- For homes with size limitations, recessed lighting will take up less space and give the area a roomier feel.
- If you can't be bothered with 4-8 different fixtures (the average for a living room setting), then you will enjoy the flexibility of a dimmer switch on your main living room lighting source.
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.
If you decide on mission furniture, then wooden flooring would look good, with plain or lightly patterned rugs to absorb sound and prevent that reverberation or booming you can get with all wood flooring and plain walls. Curtains or drapes, wallpaper and rugs absorb sound waves, so that you can't hear everyone talking anywhere in the house.
