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.
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.
