Lighting, We often neglect the magical effects light can have on a room. So what is it about lighting that can make a place more inviting than the next? It may seem strange, but with just a few fixtures in the right place, a room can appear bigger, taller, longer, or even cozier. It's especially important to have multiple light sources in a living room - brighter ones for larger gatherings, smaller ones for more intimate gatherings or a night in. Table lamps can bring lighting down to a human level and make a room seem cozier. So consider placing several table lamps around the room for a more intimate atmosphere. Another easy trick is to switch 'cool' toned light bulbs for 'warm' tone ones. It's a tiny investment, minimal work, nearly instant cozification.
When design meets both form and function, it feels like money well spent. I mentioned in the previous post that we had a major heating issue in the house last winter. Upstairs was extremely hot at night. (It absorbed all the sun from the day and the rise of the heat from below). But the downstairs was an ice chest throughout the day. We have one system for the house, so when we'd heat the downstairs, it'd make upstairs perfect for hot yoga. We now use the fireplace as a heater to the first floor, and it's working beautifully. We've barely had to run our heater this fall. So here's our cozy modern living room. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm glad we waited a year plus to add the fireplace. It took us that long to get to know the room and the house.
Avoid having fans directly above seating. Ceiling fans cool in the summer and improve air circulation for heat distribution in the winter, but rotating blades aren't psychologically comfortable to have spinning over your head. Even if they're securely anchored, many folks feel apprehensive sitting directly beneath them.Locating a ceiling fan central to the room but over a circulation space or even a coffee table, as shown here, is a better approach. Maximize greenery for better health. The decor in this room is gorgeous, but the fiddleleaf fig in the corner is what leaves a lasting impression. It's well-known that plants are good for our well-being, boosting our moods and cleaning the air. Not bad for a comparatively small investment that also adds a lot of natural beauty.
