Lighting is a crucial part of decorating a room. I consider myself a modern-industrial kind of girl.

For our living room makeover I chose a set of classic lamps with an industrial touch.

For one side of the sofa I chose a table lamp and for the other side a floor lamp.

I did this because I knew that the different heights were going to bring dimension and movement into the room while the similarity in design was going to bring the space together!

For the ceiling I chose a really unique ceiling fan. Summers around here are HOT and this light feature proves that ceiling fans can be practical and simply cool. I purchased mine forever ago and it was love at first sight!

When you are decorating with neutral colors paying attention to layering and using a ton of different textures is crucial for the over all look of the room. This is your chance to kick boring out of the picture.

Fabrics, pillows, rugs, baskets, throws and accessories will be your best friends at this point!

There is a total of seven pillows and three throws  in this room and just two of the pillows are identical…

…Mix and matching is my favorite!

For the floor I chose a black leather rug… I can’t tell you how much I love it!

It is fun, modern, unique, and it has a lot of texture!

Now that you have the lighting and texture down, it is time to bring in the final accessories to reflect your personality!
