For an easy splash of color, outfit windows in treatments with bold hues and unique patterns. Here, unlikely chevron curtains transform this muted space into a fabulously lively living room. Place a few accessories mimicking the color scheme around the room, such as the striped vintage chairs shown here. Stacked white frames placed between the windows tie the neutral wall colors together.
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.
Modern living room colors and patterns partner to infuse flair into this living room. A combination of navy, aqua, and mustard yellow make for a relaxing yet vibrant color palette. Stripes, ikat, and other geometric patterns help the eye travel through the spacious room. Varying the scale of the patterns, along with large swaths of neutrals, on the sofa and walls, helps pace the exuberant look.
Living room colors can be easily incorporated into a space in stages. See how to layer colors for a stunning final result. Balance bright colors with strong neutrals for a look that is colorful but livable. Accents of peppy pink, lime green, and yellow are sprinkled over a foundation of assertive neutrals: on the brown chair, gray sofa, dark wood floors, and black lighting.
