There is nothing quite like a fresh coat of paint. Your living room is a great place to relax, entertain friends, and spend time with family. It may feel dated to you after staring at the same walls for years and years. Redecorating and covering furniture can be so expensive that it’s hard to enjoy the room once it’s done, but the perfect affordable alternative is to update it with a fresh coat of paint. Take a look at these color ideas that will transform your living room today.
Taupe is a great color to create a peaceful environment. It mimics the natural state of wood, and it has a rustic and clean feel to it. You can paint your living room taupe to give it a new look, and it will go with any of your existing furniture and accent pieces. If you want a splash of boldness, paint an accent wall orange.
Deep teal reminds people of the ocean, and it can bring harmony to your living room. It looks particularly amazing with lighter wood colors and accessories throughout the room. If you have light flooring and a few cream-colored accent blankets or pillows in your living room, this color could really bring a new vibe to your living room.
Mint green is a fresh and crisp color that is sure to make you feel relaxed and calm when you enter your living room. It will look great with almost any of your current furniture pieces, and you can add a few plants to enhance the serenity of your space.
Pale pink can bring in a feeling of innocence and freshness. You can pair it with most furniture, and it will open up your space. Try to use a shade of pale pink that touches on the peachy side, and it will go well with mustard yellow or gray accents. If it’s just too much pink for you, try using it as an accent on one of the walls. It will freshen up your living room beautifully.
Gray has been popular for a while, but if you go with gray with an icy blue tint, it adds some charm to the room. Paint your molding and window trim white, and this color will be crisp and fresh. It will especially look nice with plush light colored furniture.
It may take some nerve to paint your living room lilac, but this color will make your living room the coziest in the house. If you want to ease into it, start with an accent wall in this color. Once you see how bright and cheery it makes you feel, you will be ready to paint the rest of the room this color.
The deep, rich color of Merlot will add depth to your room, especially if you accent it with white trim. You can paint the entire room or try an accent wall. Either way, it will look lovely with yellow or navy blue furniture and accessories.
