Living Room Colour Ideas & Inspiration

Your living room is an area in your home where you entertain your family and friends and simply enjoy your free time. Living room colours can help to create a warm and inviting environment for anyone who enters. We'll give you the best colour for living room walls along with living room inspiration to help you create your new favourite space in your home. 

Add a Pop of Colour

If most of the bigger pieces of furniture in your home are light or neutral colours, create contrast with a bold colour wall. You can pick three walls in your living room to be a more neutral shade and create a focal point by painting the fourth a vibrant shade. It could be a deep wine, coral blue, or any other shade that will create contrast. You can tie the room together by adding accents of the same colour around the room, such as cushions, throws, rugs or ornaments. 

Go Neutral 

Since people tend to flow in and out of your living room, set up a neutral space where the colours and themes in your other rooms come together. Neutral tones are easy to mix and match. Also, if you get tired of plain shades, it's easy to add furniture or rugs to add a splash of colour and draw your eyes around the room. Warm tones tend to be very inviting and cosy, while cooler tones give your living room a modern and chic feel. 

Don't Let the Light Wash Your Room Out

If your living room gets a lot of natural light, it can wash out the lighter neutral colours. You'll need deeper colours to counteract this. Interestingly, cooler shades do well with strong natural lighting. For north-facing rooms, consider adding warmer tones to wrap the room and give it an inviting look and feel. 

Use Vignettes to Catch Your Guest's Eyes 

Vignettes are small designs that draw people's attention. They're great for living room design because you can place them literally anywhere you'd like the eye to go. Get three or four small like-coloured accessories and group them together on an end table, shelf or coffee table. This grouping can make them seem like you have a collection. Check out our Gallery for some great ideas. 

Narrow Down Your Colour Scheme

For living room inspiration, choose three shades of your favourite colour. Narrowing down this colour scheme can make a more dynamic look and feel. Get a few accessories that match your chosen hue and spread them around your room to tie it all together.
