7 Great Living Room Color Themes
A living room furnished in a harmonious color theme goes a long way in setting an interesting mood. It can also be a perfect take-off point to set the décor theme for the rest of your home. Here are 7 exciting schemes to explore and find something that suits your style!
Vibrant Contemporary – Combine a warm orange tone like tangerine or pumpkin with turquoise to bring into play a modern, trendy vibe in your living room. Play off these hues over a backdrop of creamy white to get them looking fabulous, not garishly frumpy.
Comfortable Country – Live in harmony with the countryside by using a palette composed of forest or emerald greens, dusky beige and rich brown. The shades of nature are what you’ll want to play with for this timeless theme, with plenty of wood grains and textures to re-create the outdoor aura.
Cottage Chic – Warm fawn with a pretty cornflower blue is classic and pairs well with pale cream, punctuated with a touch of foliage green. These hues pull together this all-time favorite color scheme that is perfect for a family room.
Casual Beach Shack – Create a seaside ambiance by using lots of billowy white, sandy brown, powder blue and sea green. Hints of coral enhance this look and brighten up the soft tones. Wicker furniture and accessories bring the breezy coastal feel indoors and complete the picture.
Upside-down – Take the color to the top of the room by painting the ceiling with sage green or cool lilac and keep the walls clean and pale in pearly white. Round off this unusual theme with drapes, cushions or ottomans in the color of the ceiling.
Girl Power– A saucy tint of pink like fuchsia or crimson, when teamed judiciously with pastel coffee browns like latte can work beautifully to create a dashingly feminine room without resorting to humdrum baby pinks.
Elegantly Gray – Bring in the ombré rage to your living room with shades of grays for an unexpected yet elegant theme. Smarten up those soothing tones with silver, and add pops of navy for a sophisticated finish.
