How did you manage to light the space without using pot lights?

We used a variety of lamps to light the space - we usually opt for a brighter wattage clear globe bulb and put them on a cord dimmer. It allows for bright light when desired, but still offers softer mood lighting while sitting in the room. I think this room had the one table lamp and the arc lamp (both shown) as well as another up-lit floor lamp.

Thank you very much. The client wanted to have the large tv in the main living room, so we were looking for a way to "hide" it so that it didn't seem overwhelming in the space. The black on black wallpaper did the trick perfectly. I think that many wallpaper companies are now offering similar papers, so there are lots of options!

I would consult the paint company that you purchase from and would think it would need some priming.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Decluttering: Minimalism With Children
9. Interchange your small bins. One successful organizational tool is to separate toys into bins (blocks, trains, baby dolls...) and interchange the bins between rooms. You will be amazed at how this change in environment will spark new play.
Samantha Schoech added this to Thank You for Sharing: The Family Living Room
Double-Duty FurnitureLet's face it: To a child, that upholstered ottoman is a launching area, and those round poufs are landing pads. Furniture that can take a beating and still look decent is a great way to design for kids and grownups. Basically anything you can flop onto will work.
