Living Room / June 21, 2018 / .
As with all the uniquely designed rooms in your home, you will want to have a focal point for your living room. This focal point is where your eyes are instantly drawn when you enter the room. Without a focal point, your room can feel like an overwhelming mix of decorating themes, each competing with the next for attention.
Some of the best living room wall color ideas are a part of a well thought-out theme. Favorite sport teams, vacation spots, or a beloved era could all influence a familys decor style. Here, layered shades of red and blue mingle to add dimension to this patriotic space. The rustic wood beams and red-hued leather chairs give off a warm, retro vibe. Large, blank walls offer a display for art and patriotic accessories.
A can of paint is one of the easiest, fastest and least expensive ways to completely change the look of your living room. Two great living room paint ideas include adding an accent wall and adding texture to your walls. If your living room lacks a focal point, or if you want to further emphasize a focal point, an accent wall can emphasize a particular shade, or you could use a complementary design like stripes or two hues separated by a chair rail. In a small room that a bright tone may overwhelm, you can still incorporate your favorite shade on one wall while the others boast a more neutral color. If your decor pieces can best be described as eclectic, an accent wall can pick up on a common hue and make each item pop.
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!
