Living rooms require three types of lighting: ambient, task, and accent. Ambient light provides a room with overall illumination, task lighting directs light to certain work zones, and accent lights highlight specific objects. Within those basic requirements are a world of options. Whether you want something fun like this room from Johan Adler, or something more subdued, there's a virtually endless supply of living room lighting ideas for every taste and setting.
A mix of different types of lighting, placed at different points in the room, is essential for creating a proper living room lighting scheme. While the first thing you tend to see in this room in London's Johan Adler is the central statement fixture, there are also three table lamps, one-floor lamp, five pot lights, and an accent light in the ceiling on the window side of the room. They all combine to create a layered and robust lighting scheme, free of shadows。
When it comes to living room lighting the most important thing to do is have a little fun and trust your stylistic instincts. While the lights in this room from Johan Adler are all a little wild, they beautifully as part of this fun, eclectic room.
