Try this easy approach to living room color ideas: commit to two main hues dispersed evenly throughout the room. Here, bold black and shimmery gold accessories are placed symmetrically to create a visually stunning space. The stand-out gold frame against the painted wood paneling drive the eye toward the center and make the black and gold pair even more dynamic. Choose asymmetrical art featuring the same color scheme for an element of surprise.
Use an L-shaped sectional as a room divider. Another great place for your L-shaped sofa is between two seating areas or dividing the living and dining spaces in an open-plan space. Fill dead wall space rather than letting it go bare. In a large space, it is nearly always best to pull furniture off the walls, creating cozy arrangements closer to the center of the space. The trouble is, this can leave a great deal of wall space bare, do not let it go to waste!
Grey living room ideas should not remind you of a rainy day. Use a neutral background as the canvas for pops of bright color, clean lines, and funky patterns. In this living room, a coat of chic gray paint on the walls, a handsome stone fireplace, and chocolate brown tables give a foundation to the bright plants, art, and accessories, which keep the room from looking cold. When you feel like a change in the color scheme, simply swap out the accessories for a whole new look.
Hang bright, graphic artwork to amp up the style of a cozy family room. Here, a floating gallery shelf with blue prints puts a surprising contemporary twist on a traditionally rooted room. On the adjacent wall is proof that you can fill a bold-patterned wallpaper with artwork. The key to doing this is to keep the color scheme, in this case, black and white, consistent between the wallpaper and the print.
