I have been pondering some living room lighting ideas today.
So our living is due a major makeover and I have all the big stuff sorted. You know those things you think about first – the furniture, the sofas even what we are going to do about the window dressings. They were easy because I had a very clear vision of how I wanted the living room to look. The bit I was stick on (as always) was the detail.
Always my sticking point. Cushions, candles and coffee table s always take me a while but after A LOT of online shopping I now have these pretty much nailed down too.
But living room lighting ideas. Ooh they take some thought. Lighting is so important to get right so I have spend t some time really thinking about this.
Living Room Lighting Ideas
You can visit OzLighting to see a selection of beautiful lights and they have inspired me greatly. I have decided to look t my living room in terms of lighting zones in order to decide what will work best
Reading zone – Desk lamp
I love to read it is absolutely one of my greatest pleasures in life. I have a little corner by my book case where I like to snuggle up with a blankie and read. I have a little table next to the book case where I place my coffee and snacks and it is absolutely crying out for a desk lamp of some kind to help me feel ultra cosy. UNlike a table ligh I can direct a desk lamp onto my book which would be perfect.
Dark Corner – table lamp
A lovely table lamp would be perfect for a dark corner in our living room and it would cast a lovely glow. I know juts the corner! I always think a little table light give s a cosy warming glow and this is perfect when you want to hunker down in your living room.
And doesn’t it just co-ordinate beautifully with the desk lamp from OzLighting?
What other living room lighting ideas do I have? Well I do have to think about the main lights an perhaps some picture lighting too.
Main lighting – Pendant for Living Room Lighting Ideas
I do like sleek and minimalist lighting it suits my style and it’s un-fussiness really appeals to me.
This pendant would be just perfect for my living room (and much easier to clean than a fabric shade!) This would cast a lovely lot of light too wouldn’t it?
Living Room Lighting Ideas – Picture Lights
I love art and I have a few really special paintings. To have picture lights under them or above them to really show them off would be a little bit of luxury for my living room and something I have never actually tried before. I think they would look super smart.
So there you go a little selection of lighting ideas for my lounge makeover – aren’t they all just lovely?
Did I miss anything? What lighting do you have in your living room?
