Multiple layers of light make a living room feel more open and spacious; layered lighting adds energy and sufficient illumination any time of the day, making the room more functional and welcoming to family and visitors alike. Designing a living room with layers of light is possible once you understand what makes up each layer and how to combine them. You can use all layers or pick the one that is most important to your overall design scheme for the living room.
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.
The glow of candlelight and firelight glow goes back to our oldest ancestors, and a fireplaces offers another form of flickering light and homey ambiance. We contain the heat, smoke, and lighting of a fire within a fireplace, directing the heat and light into the living room but diverting the smoke out the chimney or similar method. To get the same look, you can have a gas or electric log that offers the same lighting and environment as a traditional wood-burning fireplace without the smoke or smell of burning wood.
