Despite the long list of ideas on how to create a cozy living room we set out above, the dominant attribute of a cozy living room is the color scheme.  Specifically that it uses warm colors such as earth tones.  You’ll see most of the examples below have warm colors – beiges, browns, deep reds, soft oranges, cream, etc.

Another type of hanging light is a chandelier. A chandelier is a hanging fixture with multiple branches containing numerous lights. Often, chandeliers have crystals or some type of glasswork as well. These lights are great for designs which are looking for an elevated or sophisticated appeal. The glasswork and crystal do well to refract the light, spreading it over the area. Chandeliers are also vulnerable, and can be quite expensive, so you want to be very careful with them.
