Almost everyone loves a spacious room, and if your room is small then you just have to do something about it. You can make your room appear bigger by placing mirrors in strategic positions. Doing this will increase the width and the breadth of your living room from the reflection.
Lighting is vital in any room and the living room is no exception. To match your contemporary design style, you need to look at light fixtures in terms of both style and type. The majority of living rooms can work with a table lamp combined with recessed lighting. When you will be incorporating a contemporary style, take a look at a chrome ceiling fixture with recessed lighting but steer clear of anything which is scrolly or fancy.
Instead, balance it out with a mix of rich and subtle neutral shades of color, with perhaps just one or two pops of color in the rest of your furniture, such as a sunny yellow sofa or a few colorful ornaments on your oak bookshelf.
