The living room is one of the most important rooms in your home. It’s where you and your family gather throughout the day to hang out, chat, read books, watch movies, play games, laugh, cry, relax, and generally live. (Hence, the name!) Because of how important and well-used living rooms typically are, it’s a good idea to have yours decorated and painted exactly the way you want it. After all, you’ll be spending a good deal of time in your living room…and you won’t want to if it’s painted a rather ugly color or if the decor is clashing with your sense of style.
We want you to have a home that’s beautiful, one that you can truly love and call your own. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of several stunning paint color trends that can turn your living room from ‘drab and dull’ to ‘delightful and daring’. For the best results, you’ll probably need to call professional painters to do the job well.
Check out these eight living room interior color trends to paint in your luxury homes:
1. Rich Blue Colors
If you want your living room interior to subtly reflect a bygone era, the luxury of royalty, and similar vibes, then rich, royal blue might be the way to go. There are plenty of different shades and paints to choose from. Make sure you go with a good quality paint that has a rich, long-lasting hue. You’ll want to immerse yourself in your living room and never escape.
If you really want to go with the royal, antique vibe, gold-toned decor is a great option. Otherwise, you could present a more lowkey look with muted greys and whites in your decor choices.
2. Warm Whites and Glowing Reds Colors
In luxury homes, warm whites and glowing reds are among the most popular living room interior color trends.. You may want your living room to be tranquil and peaceful, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with the space as well. No more earth tones for you! Instead, a combination of creams and crimsons may be just want you need to keep that relaxed atmosphere while still adding amazing pops of color.
Start by painting your living room a rich, warm cream color. Then get to work filling up the decor with rich reds or even deep oranges that will make your living room that much more beautiful.
3. Bright Yellow Colors
Does your living room get a lot of natural light? If so, having a yellow-hued living room can take that natural light and make it seem that much brighter, virtually flooding one of your favorite rooms with that gorgeous, gorgeous sunlight. Now, when we say ‘bright yellow’, we don’t mean ‘lemons’ (though if lemon yellow is what you want, go for it–there’s no judgement here). There are plenty of shades and variations that you can choose from. Go with the one that speaks to you.
4. Pretty Pastels Colors
Pastel shades are sometimes the best. You get a great color while not having that color overpower the whole room. Pastels aren’t for everyone, but if you can find a lovely shade of pastel pink, blue, green, yellow, etc. it can give your living room a chill, relaxing, no pressure vibe that will allow you to rest and focus on what really matters to you.
5. Pink and Mint Green Colors
Pink and green might seem unbearably Easter to you, but it could actually be a great color choice for your living room. You can have your walls painted a soothing shade of mint green and have mostly pink accents, or you can paint your walls a faded or rosy pink color and have the decor be a light, simple mint green. Have fun with it!
6. Simple Greens Color
Green is a solid color choice for when you’re not sure what you’d like for your living room walls. Depending on the shade, it can be dependable, a little crazy (but cool), reminiscent of a forest at midnight, a summer’s day, or any other number of things. Go through some paint chips and see what color jumps out at you.
7. Light, Cool Grey Color
If you’re looking for a simple, understated paint color for your living room, grey might be exactly what you need! It may seem boring at first, but it can actually provide a great ‘blank slate’ for colorful decor, pictures and paintings, and so much more. Plus, the right shade of grey can be calming instead of gloomy.
8. Sophisticated Black and White Colors
There are few color trends that marry elegance, simplity, and excellence so well as a simple (yet powerful) palette of black and white. Yes, this choice can come across as stark or even spartan, but there are ways to harness the power of black and white in order to make your living room an amazing visual treat. Paint your walls white (bright white, muted white, creamy white…it’s up to you and each variation will give your room a slightly different vibe) and then invest in some quality black furniture (think leather couches and easy chairs).
You could/should also have your decor (rugs, throw pillows, etc.) in either black or white. Maybe consider adding some chrome/metal accents as well! One way to keep the black and white from looking too gloomy and/or sterile is to have a few (very few) pops of color throughout the run. Maybe a gorgeous, color-rich painting of a sunset hanging on the wall or a cheerful yellow throw pillow against other black and white throw pillows. It’s up to you!
