Start think about the different zones of your living room and choose light sources accordingly: you'll need task lighting, such as a standing or table lamp over an armchair for reading; a dimmable central pendant light for those occasions when you want the room brightly lit; and plenty of accent lighting in the form of low-level table lights, picture lights and even lighting hidden within alcove shelving.
Regardless of whether you’re a socialite, who loves to host get-togethers, or a homebody, who prefers to lounge in comfort, you can treat living room décor as your canvas. This is a room where you will spend quality time relaxing or entertaining guests. Why not put in the extra effort for the sake of self-expression through living room décor.
If you have the space, and particularly in through living rooms, arrange furniture to create purposeful zones. Sure, have a sofa that is just for TV worshippers, but also create a defined reading space by putting an armchair next to a window or table lamp; assign a dedicated work space to a corner with a console table, desk or home office hidden in a cupboard; or separate a children's play space from the rest of the room with open shelving.
If you’re the sort of person to walk around without shoes on inside, carpet helps to keep your feet warm and radiates an aura of cosiness. Ultimately, what you choose should depends on the conditions of the room and your lifestyle. As we mentioned earlier, think about the effect you want to achieve. Is your living room your mecca of peace and comfort, or a statement room in your home?
