The second step to a Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Green Living Room is FUN Lighting. Whether it is a chandelier or a lamp for the side table, don't let it be boring. Look for beautiful green glass that will catch the light or illuminate the base. Your green lamp can either match perfectly with the color of your sofa or it can vary in a few shades lighter or darker - just be sure you have the same hue. Green can sometimes appear in a strange yellow-y shade that for the most part isn't ever a good color. It helps to go shopping with a small fabric swatch of your sofa.
