There are rare colors to paint the house, and colors that simply do not work in rooms like the living room. These 3 take the prize!
RED, TOO INTENSE A COLOR
The color red is always related to passion and intensity. It is not surprising, since it is the most visceral tone, 100% identified with our instincts. Therefore, if what you want is for your living room to be a room where calm and tranquility reign, forget about the color red. It’s also a bad option because it dwarfs spaces, creating a claustrophobic and oppressive feel. The ideal colors for the living room? Neutral, green, and blue tones.
PURPLE, WATCH OUT FOR THE DARK
Purple, when intense, dwarfs spaces and, like red, causes claustrophobic and overwhelming sensations. This is also explained because purple has a part of the red color. And although we know that it can be tempting in times like autumn or winter, we recommend opting for lighter tones or, failing that, to paint only one area in this tonality, as long as the living room is spacious enough.
BRIGHT YELLOW, ENERGETIC BUT VERY STIMULATING
Painting the living room walls in bright yellow is like having five cups of black coffee in one sitting: you end up oversaturated and stimulated. Despite being a tone that transmits energy and positivity, when it acquires so much intensity the energy transforms into nervousness at all desired as it is a room intended for relaxation and disconnection. Bye, bye!
