There’s a myth that your hardwood flooring shouldn’t be too dark because it would shrink your living space even more. Well you know what? It’s true. Colors have a big impact in creating that spacious feel for your home. You can use cream, beige, or light lime. Also, you can consider using lots of mirrors they create that “large” feeling that you’re chasing.
Adding to them, rich hued and heavily embroidered drapes would usher in the traditional charm by all means. If you remember, we all used to and still do love our furniture and curtain clothes made out of velvet, silk or brocade. The enticing presence the traditional stuff brings into your living rooms is beyond compare.
This is one of the most sci-fi and intricate lamps you can imagine, but no less can be expected of sacred monster Artemide. There is a debate about how much usable light this lamp actually gives, but it is a spectacle for the eyes and that is also the reason it is bought at its painfully high price.
This pendant lamp is bold, wild, temperamental and exciting. Lampshades with a clipped, scissored aspect have the advantage of filtering the light and creating a sweet shadowplay, in addition to favoring the distribution of some indirect light to the ceiling. Thus, the contrast between the lamp and the surface of the ceiling is diminished. Red and glossy, a funky pendant lamp such as Devil easily finds its place in a modern, retro or punk living room.
You can even accentuate the need for tradition with the help of strategically placed rustic items that look aged but keep the overall look contemporary and clutter-free. Personalize your living room with creative and artistic accents that give that feeling of tranquility and comfortable relaxation for you, your family and your guests.
You can also add to the traditional lure by choosing different bold hues for your living room walls. But when you do that, make sure the colors stand well with your taste and that of the visitors too.
