A modern room color scheme is simply a coordinated effort amongst all the colors in the room to create a group, or scheme that is noticeable from a distance.
Feature wall: A striking wall turns an ordinary room into an exceptional one. The intense richness of Redcurrant Glory on the fireplace in this image works brilliantly with Natural Hessian in the remainder of the room.
Warming orange living room: By painting both the skirting and the walls in Tuscan Terracotta we give the room an increased feeling of height. By doing this the wall looks like it travels all the way to the floor, rather than being chopped off by a pale skirting.

Painting gives a new life to your living room, it makes the room fresh, new and clean, But we all know one of the most difficult decorating tasks is choosing a color scheme. Are you still thinking about a color for those walls for your important living room? Oyster White, Navajo White, Cielo Blanco, Off White are but a few variations that builders use when painting the interior of most homes. That while these colors look clean and crisp when we first move in, it doesn’t take long before we tire of the look and want something with a bit more pizazz. Having said that, most people are a little afraid to step out of the standard for fear of not liking their color choice and having to re-do the process back to its original, boring Off White.
The most fashionable color today is still the various tone of white or off-white because it makes the room look very large and also makes small pieces, like lamps and tables, look larger. White also adds light to your living room while helping to keep it cooler in the summer months. However, too many rooms with white walls tend to make your home look sterile or generic, not to mention the time you’ll have keeping your walls clean.
Color scheme for living room
A living room color scheme is simply a coordinated effort amongst all the colors in the room to create a group, or scheme that is noticeable from a distance. Think about the stripes on a traditional prison uniform, the color scheme of that is easily identifiable as black, and white. Some rooms have single color schemes like brown, or red, or white. While most have multiple color schemes.
A great idea would be to add hints of colors to complement your white walls. You can use a little tan for your trim some tones in light green or blue, or a tan or taupe accent wall.
Brown: There is nothing like the shades of brown to bring out warmth and blend in nicely with just about everything. But be cautious to use brown colors in a small living room as it may dominate the room, oppressing the colors of your furniture and accents. Shades of Tan or taupe will work, although.
Yellow: Yellow is a difficult color to use. While it can brighten up a dark room it has also been found to increase anxiety in the elderly and the very young. On the other hand, it encourages conversation so is an excellent choice for a living room. Choosing the right intensity is the key to success when using yellow. A deep Tuscan gold looks wonderful next to all your dark woodwork. A creamy white with yellow undertones is more appealing than a stark white wall.
Reds: The color Red is a classic shade because they are so bold, vivacious and daring. Reds work especially well with light colored furniture, making it stand out even more. Still, people like to use red as an accent color with just a hint of that shade, more than a main wall color. But nowadays, a few people dare t o paint their walls red too.
Blues: Blues are cool and most often related with French country, Victorian or marine designs. In the more traditional uses, blue is great for expressing formality due to its consoling nature. Nonetheless, blue suggests countless different hues that can change outlook as well as atmosphere.
