If the living room is too elongated in length, do not place the dining area in the center. Visually align the room with the help of massive cabinets and chest of drawers along the end walls, so the room will become more square.
In a wooden house, spotlights, which are often mounted in ceiling structures, look too alien. For the main lighting is better to hang a wrought-iron chandelier with imitation candles.

Textiles enliven the interior. Without curtains, bedspreads, tablecloths and cushions the room looks uninhabited. When choosing textile décor, purchase linen or cotton fabrics. Cloths with 100% flax or cotton content are crumpled and tend to sit down when washed, so a small amount of synthetic fibers in the composition is acceptable - this does not affect the appearance, but it improves the performance characteristics of fabrics.
Important! In rustic interiors look perfectly processed fabrics, for example, unbleached linen.
