In the study, just like in the bathroom, a mixture of direct and indirect light sources should always be used. A warmly lit background creates a pleasant atmosphere, while the well-lit desk makes for a pleasant working atmosphere. As a rule of thumb, it is advisable to use at least three light sources in living rooms. In addition to a dimmable ceiling light, floor or wall lamps and candles create a sense of well-being. Anyone who has ever vacationed in Denmark or another Scandinavian country will have noticed that there are candles on the tables and windowsills in almost all rooms, even in cafés and stores. This not only looks romantic, but also helps to banish the winter blues.

Designing living spaces: Furnish skillfully

The fact that clear forms and functionality became permanently established in interior design with the Bauhaus is no coincidence. The clearer the furnishings, the easier it is to design a room according to one’s own taste with a few stylish home accessories. Therefore, when buying furniture, the rule is to hold back on the purchase of extravagant pieces of furniture. The more timeless the furniture, the more freely curtains, living rugs, candlesticks, pictures and vases can be arranged into an artful ensemble, in the midst of which you immediately feel at home.
