Good Questions: Child-friendly Living Room Ideas?

ATDC reader Leigh needs help setting up a child-friendly living room:

"Hi! I need lamp, color and chair suggestions. I think my lamps are too short and the whole room looks too dark and heavy. I'd like a little more modern glamour. Any (kid-proof) ideas?"

Leigh,
We think you have some great bones, but agree the lamps should be more substantial. We like this crystal lamp from Target because of its height and transparency. As you can see in the picture below, it would match well with your dark leather furniture. We do think a soft neutral shade on the wall would warm up your room; again see the picture below for an idea how that would look.

Do any of our readers have alternative suggestions?
