      Raise the ceilingUsing a fitting that throws light upwards to highlight a ceiling is a cunning way to make a room seem taller. Here, the height of the mega floor lamp exaggerates the effect even more. Meanwhile, the feature pendant’s lightbulbs are crown mirrored, which will soften and redirect the light cast dramatically, creating a low-key, dimmed effect.Browse lighting in the Houzz Shop

      Streamline your styleSo, you love minimalist, contemporary rooms, but you’re also partial to a throw cushion (or three)? Then choose a loveseat without arms to achieve a modern appeal without the fussy curves. Want to make the room feel more streamlined still? Match your loveseat to your main sofa – in shape, style and upholstery fabric.

      Go greenWe know it’s summer when nature turns green and abundant, so make a point of bringing that richness inside. An arrangement of lush foliage lends a cooling, refreshing vibe to interiors and is a quick way to make even the gloomiest of rooms come alive.

      Create multiple layersGrey is incredibly versatile, and when layered in a variety of shades, textures and finishes, it looks gloriously sophisticated. In this beautiful living room, even the painting is a melange of grey tones. The space feels calm and coordinated, but also full of detail, texture and warmth.See stylish ideas for bringing grey into every room

      Set the scene with mood lightingThe right lighting can totally transform an evening. Create a relaxed atmosphere by turning off the overhead light and switching to floor and table lamps. Or, if you want to get really into it, you could switch the lights off entirely. Have an idea of what works best for the different phases of the evening before your guests arrive.

      Layer your light sourcesHaving several, low wattage sources of light is a great way to create a relaxing, cosy mood. Here, the lights run from the cluster pendant up high to the mid-level floor light to the table lamp for an inviting, intimate mood.How to dazzle with cluster lights

      Complement a central light fixtureThe cluster light here is the main focus, so the floor lamp needs to take a back seat. To ensure two separate light fittings work together, try matching similar shades and tones. This lamp has a neutral shade and barely there base.Browse our pick of the perfect pendant lights
