Lighting is a key factor in any room but even more important in a small room. The key to lighting is to layer it in the room, from floor to ceiling. The use of multiple types of lighting helps darken all areas of a room, which can close in a space and make it feel small. Multi-layering lighting entails the use of the natural light you have in your room paired with floor lamps, table lamps, ceiling lights, sconces on the walls and even artwork lights. All types of lighting work together to brighten dark corners and light up spaces that feel closed in by darkness. Evening time is one of the most obvious times of day where a room can lose its sense of size and can be rectified with a generous amount of artificial lighting.
Going with the same theme of the wall colors, light colored furniture adds space to the room as opposed to darker colored furniture. Dark colored woods on furniture can shrink a room and draw your vision inward rather than out. Light oak colored wood has less vision weight compared to dark woods. Furniture with legs also gives you more floor space visual and allows you to see more of the floor, adding more square footage to a room where as furniture that sits directly in the floor, eats up flooring and makes a room feel small and tight.
Brick walls aren’t something you traditionally see just on the outside of a building, but they are becoming common place to see as an interior design, and living rooms are the common place you might find a brick wall. Living rooms are the gathering place in the house. You gather to visit, entertain, watch television, read and just relax. Home owners want the living room to be inviting to family and friends, and one way to achieve a warm and cozy atmosphere is to incorporate a brick wall in the room. It may not sound like a brick wall would be a warm and cozy décor scheme, however, the right choice of brick and you can create a whole new look and feel to the room that adds character and an interesting focal point.
Tall ceilings, large windows framed by fluid curtains which let the natural light in, different materials and textures, exquisite furniture and an overall elegant look also given by the neutral color scheme make us want to stare forever at the pictures in the gallery. The dining area is the most sophisticated space of the whole living. Sleek shiny floors, oval dining table with black chairs and a marvelous lighting object hanging above the table are just the main elements that characterize this incredible space.
