It is important for your living room to be well-lighted. You can use overhead spots like track lighting to highlight some areas. You may also use pin lights and some recessed lighting. You could also place a table lamp which can also be an added decoration and even some floor lamps. Do not place light near the television for it already emits light.
Use elaborate window treatments like swags, valances and tiebacks. Use fabrics that are silk, brocade and damask. Trim these with tassels, cords, braid and crystals to add more embellishments. You can also have a stained glass window if you are willing to spend money for it. To get that Victorian look, use decorative mouldings, ornaments, plasterwork and arches for your walls. Arches can create a grand look while plasters and mouldings give that look of authenticity. These things may cost a lot but would certainly give you the look you want. But if you want to save money, you can opt for walls with deep rich colors like red. You may also apply unique wallpapers with metallic or ornate prints.
A unique and simple centrepiece is surely an added splendour in this minimalist living room. With the dramatic effect of using stained-glass, the living room is given more life especially with the use of natural textile. Black, grey and white combined together works well in this minimalistic modern living room. The cost-effective and stylish design reflects success and youth which is the personality of the owner.
