The living room is the space at home where we spend more time, whether with family, friends, enjoying a good book or a movie. Or simply abandon ourselves to the pleasure of dolce far niente. It is a place where, above all, we want to feel comfortable.
That is why it is important to decorate and renew it with small details that convey joy and optimism. And nothing does it better than a few notes of color. And they do it in record time. But what are the best colors for living rooms? And how to add them? These 45 rooms stand out for having all of the brushstrokes or even large strokes, in a wide variety of colors.
1. A PAINTING THAT COLORS THE LIVING ROOM
In this room decorated by the interior designer Rubén de Matea, the touch of color has been reserved for the large painting that presides over the living room wall. A painting that was made expressly for this room and based on which the textile accessories were chosen, such as the sofa cushions.
2. A WHITE LIVING ROOM WITH A COLORED CARPET
Reserving the color for textiles and accessories is always a success because if you get tired it is easy to renew. In this case, the decorator Ajanta Velasco designed a living room in white, and to break with the total look she opted for a long-pile pink carpet, which gives joy and personality.
3. A LIVING ROOM WITH A BLUE ACCENT WALL
Betting on a more daring color on a living room wall, as has been done here, always adds personality to any space and is an opportunity to risk a little in the decoration. In this case, the color has been chosen, which fills the room with sophistication. In addition, its intensity highlights the light wood furniture even more.
4. WITH A SCULPTURAL FIREPLACE IN BLACK
The decorator Bárbara Sindreu opted for a neutral unit in the living room, but so that it would not be too bland, she reserved an ace up her sleeve: she painted the entire chimney flue, which occupies a central position in the space, black. Only with this touch of color, the living room looks more elegant and personal.
5. PLAY WITH TEXTILES TO GIVE COLOR
Textiles are the great allies for coloring the living room. Here, where a neutral base is imposed, the cushions and plaids have been played to give color, dynamism to space and add a note of the trend, with the so fashionable mustard and khaki green.
6. WHEN THE COLOR COMES FROM THE CEILING
When you have a beautiful coffered ceiling like this, what less than to make it the protagonist of the space! And this is what the decorator did so that nothing could compete with this marvel, she opted for pieces of neutral tones and natural fibers.
7. THE POWER OF PINK IN A LIVING ROOM
The rose can be delicate and romantic and powerful. The wide spectrum of this color makes decorating with it have numerous possibilities. Here is the result of how with the (fair) touches of fuchsia this room gains strength and personality.
8. IN WARM EARTH TONES
Colors ranging from ocher to brown combine and dot this room through decorative elements such as cushions, pouf, blanket, or carpet.
9. A CHEERFUL AND SERENE LIVING ROOM
Orange is a happy color and, according to chromotherapy, it invites creativity and is the best ally to keep depression at bay. The cushions and flowers are just the right touches for a lounge that invites you to relax.
10. SERENITY IN GREEN AND BEIGE
Going for a colored upholstered sofa can make the environment look very loaded. Balance is achieved by “playing” the opponents. Two sofas: one beige and the other green, complementing and balancing the decorative harmony of the living room.
