What are the Best Colors to Paint Your Living Room?

Many predicted the living room would fade into obscurity as people get cozy with mobile phones and social media. However, the living room is making a comeback when it comes to design and home improvement.

Trending this season are calm neutrals with pops of color that are popular with designers, painters and homeowners.

Read more about these trends and then find the Atlanta painting company to freshen up your living room with the latest styles.

Welcome Yourself Back to Your Living Room with These Paint Colors

Make Your Living Room a Sea of Tranquility

Decorators are choosing colors for interior painting projects based on aesthetics as well as the psychology behind color. For example, Tranquil Aqua creates a soothing but artistic mood in a living room. When mixed with the mysterious purple of Grape Mist, your living is transformed into an inviting space for recreation and relaxation.

Gray is the New Black

Gray may seem like an odd choice for living room spaces that are perfect for relaxing with a good book. However, the use of conservative or cityscape gray works well alongside more vibrant colors like Forsythia yellow or Reynard orange. These types of combinations break traditional monochromatic color schemes found in residential painting projects.

Pour on the Maple

This warm brown has nothing to do with a ham or pancakes.  Birdseye Glaze, with its rich undertones, is a noticeable neutral.  Birdseye Glaze coordinated with restful white brings warmth into living spaces and creates that comfortable, ‘lived-in’ feel homeowners are looking for this season.

Go for the Gold

Gold can be a bold color for a living room. However, the right shade of gold can give your living room a sense of elegance and make it welcoming for family and friends. Paint colors like Olde World Gold, when accented with Vogue Green, elevates the living room while keeping the space down to earth.

Hire the Right Painter for Your Living Room

Certain colors may be en vogue today but quality craftsmanship never goes out of style.  Be sure to hire a painting contractor who knows about the latest colors and uses high quality painting products.
