Living room lighting serves a dual purpose: it works as a light source, but also as a decorative accessory. It's important to have a variety of lighting that not just accommodates whatever events take place there, but also looks great in the space.
Decorating a small living room is often a cause of stress and frustration. Besides our sleeping space, we spend more time per day in our living room than any other, and we’re usually awake!
No matter what part of the room you're working on, be it the rugs, window treatments, or furniture arrangements, make sure you know the ideal measurements at which they should be placed. No one has it all memorized and nothing is set in stone, but make sure you’ve got a handy guide nearby so you can consult it when necessary. Remember, rules should be taken with a grain of salt. Ultimately you need to do what works best for you in your space but the rules exist as a guideline to help you figure out what is most pleasing to the eye.
