Laurent. Living Room. October 10th , 2017.
Garden-view living room, opening a living room up to an outdoor space gives a fabulous view and a wonderful sense of flow, especially in summer when you can throw open the doors. The choice of seating here is classic with a modern twist. The mix-and-match styles and fabrics create a relaxed and inviting mood.
Mid-century style living room. If designing a living room for the family, consider using durable and family-friendly materials throughtout, such as concrete flooring, bricks and timber on the ceiling. For sociable gatherings, choose the biggest sofa your space can handle. This wraparound design works brilliantly when guest come over.
A formal, parlour-style living room demands decorative lighting to impress, whether it’s a statement standard lamp or a designer chandelier. You might also consider adding accent lighting, such as a picture light to draw attention to a favourite work of art. It’s a good idea to have at least two electrical circuits for your living room lighting – one for the main light, and one for softer lighting – as well as dimmer switches so you can control the level of light to suit the time of day, task and mood.
How to light your living room. Living rooms are multifunctional spaces, so they need lighting for all the different tasks they need to perform. First, you’ll need a general light source – a ceiling pendant light, for example – that will light the room at darker times of day when the household are milling about. Wall lights and table lamps will give a softer glow when it’s time to relax. An adjustable reading lamp next to a comfy chair will allow readers to focus on their book without dazzling the rest of the room.
