Classic chandeliers work well in modern interiors.
Think outside the box when gathering interior design living room ideas, especially if you're going after a more contemporary or modern look.
A good example of going against "old decorating rules" is the more prevalent use of chandeliers. Although typically used in more traditional and formal settings, ornate classic chandeliers look great with modern furniture and decor!
The picture above is proof...what a great combination of stark black and white furnishings, a splash of yellow from decorative pillows and an unexpected gold chandelier!
I'm currently renting a hip loft in downtown Chicago. When I first looked at the place I noticed the owner had a chandelier as the main source of light in the bedroom.
I wasn't crazy about the idea because I used to think a chandelier was only appropriate hanging above a formal dining room table. But it really grew on me and now I truly agree with the interior design experts who claim chandeliers can look shabby chic in a variety of room scenarios. View loft decorating tips here.
Think of lighting as an interior design element.
If you're using an interior designer, you’ll find living room design ideas often include decorative lighting.
Today there are so many options available that lighting can be both functional and decorative at the same time.
So, why use just a functional light source when you can add to your living room decorating style?
When thinking of living room ideas, why not think about lighting as a home décor accessory?

And loft living rooms need extra attention when it comes to lighting due to their large open spaces and high ceilings.
