It's best if you plan the decor of your living room with the lighting in mind. The most important fixture for creating the right mood is the table lamp. So place table lamps in strategic places like the side tables on either side of your sofa or next to the armchair where you like to sit and read. You can also place table lamps on a sideboard a wet bar or a chest. Table lamps act like accent lights lighting up only their surrounding areas. They create interest in the room because there are pockets of light and shadow and the different areas in the room are lit selectively. If your room only had a ceiling light the entire room would be uniformly and perhaps quite brightly lit creating an uninviting cold feel.
Artificial lighting is a wide area of study of interior designers. Unlike sunlight in this type of lighting every aspect of light right from its color to it's intensity or even it's area of spreading can be controlled with various controls. Also depending upon the requirement of the living room space a single or multiple number of lights of various intensities can be used. But for creating a "moody" environment lights are used in specific areas of the living room such as ceiling corners or along the edge of the room. In creating a mood it is necessary to hide the light source and only show its effect. By hiding the light source using a "false ceiling" and projecting the light on bright colored ceiling panels such kind of mood can be created.
Consider the space of your living room when choosing the crystal chandelier. If the space is huge go for a big crystal chandelier. If the space of the room where you are planning to install the crystal chandelier is small go for a small piece because a large piece in small room makes the room look clustered crowded. So it is a must to consider the size and space of the room when choosing this sophisticated piece of art.
This kind of inviting nature can be achieved by using some easy design principles such as use of bright colors. If lighting is used with these colors then a very magical play of colors can be used enhance the living room space. Lighting primarily is categorized in two types : Natural lighting (Direct sunlight) and Artificial lighting.
