Make your living room more enjoyable

Proper lighting is essential for any home. It is important to maintain balance between personality and the functionality of the room when it comes to lighting the living room. One can transform the entire atmosphere of their living room within the proper use of lighting. One should remember that lighting not only has aesthetic and mood enhancing values, but play an important functional role in illuminating important task areas in the living room.

The living room is an important room where most people spend their leisure times with their families or friends. If your living room is large with different zones such as a dining area, home office or a lounging area, it is important that each zone has adequate lighting without overpowering other areas. While choosing the lighting, one should consider the atmosphere, one is looking to create and choose the bulbs and lamps accordingly. It is best to buy energy bulbs that can be dimmed easily to create an atmosphere of warmth and change the mood of the room whenever required. The work areas need to be properly lit and special places or paintings on the walls  or art works, one can use spotlights to bring attention to them.

Most people spend hours choosing the perfect sofa or the paint color for their living room, but they forget the importance of lighting. For a good living room lighting, it is important to use different kind of lights and at different levels that work together to create the perfect ambience. The lighting should not only allow people to carry on with their daily lives, but can also accommodate different events and parties that takes place. A bad lighting design can make your living room look old fashioned and unattractive. Thus, proper use of lighting is very important to bring the entire space together.

    I was as heartbroken as 健吾 todwars Kay Tse’s new album (or precisely the 主打歌).I think a negative review still has its own virtue. The undertone of 健吾’s review is the environment under this Kay’s latest album was produced; the priority is the consumption or reception rather than technicality. As I read along, Kay’s disappointing album was already out of my concern. I start to think about how her case represents in general the Hong Kong pop music industry .以音樂論音樂? I don’t think we can expect this in mainstream paper in Hong Kong. I envy New Yorkers. They can enjoy New York Times’ wonderful section devoted to quality and in-depth (and very musical) reviews of music, be it classical or pop, theatres, movies, and the like. There are just not enough platforms for pop music criticism in Hong Kong.健吾 positioned himself as an outsider; he relied on word articulations and apparent melodic structures, etc. Say for her Mandarin song, it brings forth the question who the target demographic this particular version is for, given her subpar Mandarin is not a matter in the recording. Have they brought in Taiwanese/Chinese producers to do the song? These small decisions reflect at least some aspects of the attitudes behind making a Mandarin version of the hit that made her a top Hong Kong female artist.Anyway, I wonder if there is really a problem here. From the start the industry has not nurtured good listeners. Who really listen to the key changes or chord changes crafted carefully and beautifully by the writers/arrangers? It was lucky enough to have an artist like Kay who can deliver these to the point.Kay is a happy outcome in this weird Karaoke-driven music scene. She was both an underdog and a warrior before she rose to fame; she questioned and did not compromise. Finally she reached the top but this unique brand of her didn’t seem to be registered in her new 主打歌. Yes I meant 主打歌. I know there are songs in her latest album that are so 謝安琪. But 主打歌 is what we wanted from her to strike a complete discord, now that she has assumed a mainstream position.
