Cavernous living rooms don‘t just feel soulless because of their expansive floor space. If you are decorating a large lounge which is double height, the problem can be exacerbated. Nevertheless, take the same approach with a double height living room as you would with a regular one. Use visual cues that express a single storey height, but apply them from floor to ceiling. Use artwork that extends the eye line upwards. Fit drapes that cover the double height of the room, for the same effect, too.
Lighter tones reflect light around a room just as darker colors soak it up. As designers know, it is for this reason that most people choose to paint small rooms in off white and soft colors. For a larger room, that you want to make feel less spacious, opt for the reverse. Select walls colors that are inviting and relaxing and don‘t be afraid to cover entire walls with single tones of paint work. Good colors to choose include darker greens, soft browns and deep blues.
Another way that designers break up large expanses of wall is to go for bold art displays. In smaller rooms an eclectic display of several wall hung images works well. In a larger room a single statement, with an oversized picture, will usually do a better job. Single pieces of wall hung art work, dominating a facade, will make the entire room seem like it is more in proportion, even if it has not been filled with living room furniture. Alternatively, a single piece of functional sculpture, like a bespoke chimney flue, will help with the effect of making the room appear more cosy.
