The living room is usually the largest room of the apartment or house. Normally, it must provide enough space for several pieces of furniture such as a comfortable sofa, a storage system, a TV stand, a coffee table, and sometimes armchairs, a chest of drawers, a console, etc.
The right choice of paint color for living room plays a crucial role so that it does not seem cluttered and to create a visual coherence between different furniture and decorations. We offer you great ideas about harmonious color combinations in the contemporary living room.
If you have a large and spacious room, the color of the walls does not have to be light. You can opt for darker shades or, at least, more saturated like cobalt blue or ocean blue, slate gray or graphite gray in the cold palette and chocolate, wine red or ruby red in the warm range.
If the room is small, you should instead opt for light colors and bright shades. Ivory, green beige and silk gray are well suited for visually enlarging the living room. Add decorations in bright colors such as green, yellow, orange or red, depending on the main palette you have chosen.
The lighting conditions also play an important role in choosing salon color. The rooms, which are flooded with natural light, for example, those facing the south, can afford at least one wall in dark color, even if their dimensions are not huge. Keep in mind that the lack of natural light can often be offset by the choice of appropriate lighting fixtures.
The north-facing living room will have a light wall color such as pastel blue and pale green or a strong sun-like color.
