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.
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.

A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross.

Whether you’re stumped by a living room layout problem or you’re looking for ways to change up your space, don’t forget the value of strategically placing your furniture. Not to mention, if you’re looking to buy a new piece or two, consider the needs of the room before making that purchase. A little forethought can go a long way in creating a living room that is both stylish and functional. Happy decorating!
