That being said, remember that overhead lighting is great so long as it is accompanied by additional task lighting such as wall sconces or reading lamps. This is to avoid casting shadows, creating glare, and causing eyestrain from insufficient lighting at eye level.
Mission Furniture Style
Before buying living room furniture, room space planning often pays by helping you to avoid clutter. If there was one thing the Victorians were good at, it was clutter. They seemed to fill every inch of available space with furniture and accessories and forget that people needed space to walk in!
If you decide on mission furniture, then wooden flooring would look good, with plain or lightly patterned rugs to absorb sound and prevent that reverberation or booming you can get with all wood flooring and plain walls. Curtains or drapes, wallpaper and rugs absorb sound waves, so that you can't hear everyone talking anywhere in the house.
However, irrespective of whether you prefer black and white or traditional earth colors, for a truly holistic approach to your living room furniture and furnishes you must also take the accessories and accent pieces into consideration. These include occasional pieces of furniture, rugs, lamps, candlesticks and even paintings and mirrors for your walls.
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
