Create layers of light. You need to create light layers that bounce illumination throughout the room in order to eliminate any shadows that might be in the corners. You should use a chandelier to provide overall light and visual interest.
This kind of inviting nature can be achieved by using some easy design principles such as use of bright colors. If lighting is used with these colors then a very magical play of colors can be used enhance the living room space. Lighting primarily is categorized in two types : Natural lighting (Direct sunlight) and Artificial lighting.
Sconces or wall sconces if you prefer are a very popular lighting fixture with models designed for both indoor and outdoor use. Wall sconces generally don't jut out too far from a wall like wall lamps can and are usually fixed in a single position. They can be uplights or downlights and some designs can even be mounted in either position. This feature just adds to the sconce's versatility. Sconces work well in almost any room but are ideal for halls and entryways and can even work well in dining rooms.
However having an elegant looking in the living room is a great idea. This is a place for the visitors to stay when they are in a person's house. So it is usually this particular room where a person considers best putting a sparkling and elegant crystal chandelier.
Artificial lighting is a wide area of study of interior designers. Unlike sunlight in this type of lighting every aspect of light right from its color to it's intensity or even it's area of spreading can be controlled with various controls. Also depending upon the requirement of the living room space a single or multiple number of lights of various intensities can be used. But for creating a "moody" environment lights are used in specific areas of the living room such as ceiling corners or along the edge of the room. In creating a mood it is necessary to hide the light source and only show its effect. By hiding the light source using a "false ceiling" and projecting the light on bright colored ceiling panels such kind of mood can be created.
Natural Direct Sunlight. Natural light received from the Sun is the most obvious and healthy source of light we receive during daytime. Though the intensity and quantity of sunlight coming inside the space can be controlled using diffused glasses or curtains on windows. When the direct sunlight falls on the inside walls the color of the walls temporarily changes to a mixture of sunlight plus the original wall shade. This particular phenomenon can be use to our advantage. By finding out the wall that received direct sunlight and painting that wall with bright color a beautiful diffused and "reflected light" can be created absolutely free. This "reflected light" will help in creating an ambience in the living room. Also shadow patterns on this wall will add to some extra excitement if used creatively.
