Living Room Design Colors

In 2018, gray is still the “go-to” neutral of choice for many interiors. However, we suggest adding a pop of color to your living room design scheme with decorative accents and décor.

What color should you choose?

You can never go wrong with neutral colors. Yet, brooding colors such as violet, navy and striking emerald green create a lovely vibe to intensify your living room design.

Think beyond your walls.

Consider adding color to your living room in subtle and unique ways.

Furniture and art offer a great alternative to inject a splash of color into your living room design. Additionally, colorful armchairs, sofas, and tables provide a subtle functional accent while adding color.

Wall art, sculptures and colorful flowering plants also provide a fun way to add color to your space. Therefore, these elements all enhance your space!

 

Glam Dark Woods

Furniture is set to head to rich and dark tones in 2018.

We’re moving away from pale, bleached woods to darker wood tones. There are many options of rich woods to choose from: think rich walnut, deep mahogany, or intense cherry.

When it comes to wood, remember to think beyond furniture from the ground up. Rich wood flooring also adds a lovely look and feel to your living room.

You can even get creative reinventing the rustic style by highlighting the natural beauty of wood with custom built one-off pieces.

Add extra allure by selecting furniture pieces that combine the natural appeal of rich woods with the industrial elements of metallic handles and legs.

Consider the fusion of walnut, gold, brass, black and marble to lend a more sophisticated feel to your space.

These dark, natural woods provide deep rich tones which tap into the resurgence of retro inspired glamour while providing a unique take on modern luxe for your living room design.

 

Travel Inspired Living Room Design

Travel always influences interior design trends.

Beautiful colors and textures from around the world offer your living room design a unique and welcoming appeal.

 

Consider elevating your living room design by featuring globally inspired prints with earthy shades of clay, terracotta, or ochre.

These patterns, materials, and textiles all have a natural feel to add a subtle accent of cozy to your living room décor.
