Your childhood memories certainly include your old home with its white or blue wallpaper and bold colored horizontal striped curtains. Such memories shape your early experience with color before you discover the fixed colors such as blue sky and sea and green land. Now you can shape your kids’ view of life outside their own rooms defining the perfect color combination for your living room.
The number of colors used in one room is a confusing decision, but you shouldn’t exceed five different colors in one room. However, you can use more than five different and balanced shades of green or brown to highlight the deep and sophisticated look of the place. At the same time, you can use just one color such as white, off-white, or cream along your living room along with accessories or pillows with a pop of color.
There are fixed or optional color schemes that will certainly match your lifestyle and the theme of the room. For example, the achromatic scheme that consists of white, grey, and black shades will be a popular option in 2017 along with black and white and analogous colors, as they will be a perfect neutral background to your minimalist living room. The monochromatic, blue and white, and blue and yellow schemes will create a dramatic and lively feel in your living room, especially with a balanced lighting system.
The temperature of your colors will define the visual look of your living room. For example, the warm colors such as red, orange, and dark yellow are perfect to relax your mind and attract your eye, but they will reduce the visual look of the space.
Contrarily, the cool colors such as blue, violet, and green colors will widen your sight and provide the place a spacious look. If you need more inspirational ideas for your living room colors, please brows Ruth Livingston’s projects and enjoy.
