Need suggestions for living room lightining

skubaMay 8, 2013

Hi All,
1940 San Francisco house, first owned house, first remodel. I need to make some decisions on lighting for the living room to tell the electrician.

Currently it's setup for sconces on all 3 walls. I am wondering about closing some of those sconces and putting 1 surface mount light on ceiling. With sconces on the middle of all walls how can I decorate, let's say put a picture on the middle of the wall? Maybe leave just sconce on back wall close to entrance.

Thoughts? If you are into the surface light idea, what would you use?

I am attaching a picture but on the link below you can see the other pictures and dimensions of the room.

Thanks so much

I'd try the decorating forum, this one tends toward more technical lighting discussions

Depending on size of room, how about 4 or 6 recessed cans with CR6 downlights in them?
