Create focal points

One of the biggest mistakes people make when decorating their living rooms is to either put lamps everywhere, or not install enough lighting. Our advice is to create focal points in your living room with the help of a pendant lamp or two, and even reading lamps. The juxtaposition of bright and dark will give your living room a comfortable and inviting look.
