Modern and Versatile Paint Trends

Color Tips, Inspiration

Picking the perfect paint color for your living room means selecting a color that is adaptable, timeless, and displays your style and personality. Living rooms are often the heart of the home; they tend to connect the house to multiple rooms. While there are many variations of colors to choose from, picking a versatile color is always a great decision because it gives you more flexibility in selecting colors for the connecting rooms. ​​Try applying neutrals and calm grounding tones in your living room for a modern, versatile look. Here are some tips on playing with neutral tones in your living room.

Try A Warm Neutral

Shades of neutral white, beige, and ivory are timeless colors that seamlessly connect your more dramatic shades in adjoining rooms. Neutral colors allow for easy changes in your living room design, like tossing in your favorite accent pieces and changing art and decor as frequently as you like without worrying about the colors clashing. Show off your favorite fabrics and textures, and colors by going bold with furniture and accent decor.

Use a versatile collection of warm neutrals. You’ll love the softness they bring to both formal and casual rooms.
We recommend trying Sherwin-Williams’ Accessible Beige and Shoji White. These colors soften your space and make it look timeless but still cozy. Warm neutrals are much softer and more forgiving than their cool-tone neutral counterparts.

Calming Gray

If you are a homeowner looking for a rich color that doesn’t overwhelm your living room area, gray neutral is a perfect choice. Grays with a stronger undertone of color, such as blue or green, create a nice balance for those who want a bit more individuality in their design choices.

Our favorite, Comfort Gray by Sherwin-Williams, is a soothing color with the softest touch of green. Comfort Gray is a perfect way to introduce bolder colors into your home without feeling too overwhelming. You can accent your room with whites, blues, and green fabrics paired with warm wood and gold accents, or try woven textiles with dark wood flooring, creamy accent pieces, and lots of greenery.

I can’t say enough good things about this business. They are professional, on time, and reasonably priced. They respect your property and your time. They show up when they say they will and work continuously until the job is done. I would give them 10 stars if it was possible. Great job.

PRO stands for professional! That is what this company is. From start to finish Seab, Marissa, Austin, Dobby, Monica and Heather were awesome, professional and caring. They all exceeded our expectations and we appreciated their personal approach to details, including tips for our diy projects. We are selling our home and needed several full... rooms and a ceiling painted. They arrived on time, we’re respectful of our space and and it was done on time and at a fair price. We highly recommend Pro 1 painters to more

I had several references and estimates and what intrigued me was Mr Miller when he came over, was his professional and kindness while conducting his estimate. He handed me a brochure, told me about their warranty and that females would be doing the work! The next day Amanda came over and her enthusiasm and kindness was really great!So I chose... Pro 1 painters! Whomever is reading this, trust me when I say the job they did was mind blowing! Monica and Jennifer were also amazing from prepping, covering furniture, the cut work and attention to detail was beyond amazing. They exceeded my expectations ten-fold! Then Amanda came over after the work was completed and conducted a walkthrough to ensure I was satisfied! Who does this??I will definitely use Pro 1 painters again! Please call them, you won’t be disappointed!!read more

review written but for some reason it used my Childs name instead of mine nonetheless, we used pro 1 painters for our interior painting of foyer, staircase and living area and they did a fabulous job! Price was reasonable, the crew was quick and did a great job. The crew was trustworthy and completed the job with us at work and I had no issues... whatsoever with their trustworthiness or efficiency. Still amazed they worked as quickly as they did! We plan to use them again in the future and Id recommend them to more

Used this business for interior painting of our foyer & living room with 20 foot plus vaulted ceilings. Price was very reasonable. Crew was professional, courteous and very efficient. They were quiet as a whisper and worked very quickly. End product was great and we plan to use them again for another project!

Pro 1 Painting Company is all about family and friends. My husband works there and been employed for a little over a year. I had major surgery on Wednesday and today I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the owners. They really lifted my spirit. It's really heart warming to know someone cares whom you've never met but heard so much... about. Just wanted to share this and say thanks for your prayers, texts, and more

Hurricane Sally came through and blew over a huge pine which destroyed our roof and caved in our ceiling — Pro 1 Painters fixed it up, looks great. They also removed popcorn texture in one bedroom, and we're going to have them come back to remove it from a couple other bedroom ceilings too. It's literally better than new.
