Get a color wheel. They're available online or in a paint store. The colour wheel is your guide to finding the shades that will work best in the space. To treat the space as an individual room, it's especially important to be cautious about the colors you create. A good location to start is by taking a look at the colour of your sofa, the most significant furniture piece in the living room. Make it the colour focal point around which you make all other decorating decisions.
The key to a comfortable and functional living room rests in the choice of lighting in the room. When you have some hard‐wired lighting but feel like table lamps and floor lamps would add a bit of subtle ambiance to the room, then check out some practical ideas. Lamps and floor lamps offer something that existing light sources don't have, versatility. You can place a floor lamp fixture or a stand lamp in a full time income room and dramatically improve the disposition and build of the room. Practice these simple suggestions for a full time income room that has harmonizing lighting.
Be sparing with the floor coverings and wall structure treatments. A simple carpet such as sisal or a Berber style over a hard‐surface floor is fine (but don't layer over wall‐to‐wall carpet).
