Color Palette Ideas for Living Room
Your living room is a place where chances are you spend a great deal of your time when you are at home as well as the place where you entertain guests so choosing just right decor is understandably something that people find very important. Whatever the furniture in the room is like though the real tone and feel of the room is determined by the colors it contains and choosing just the right ones is something that should be given quite lot of thought. Different color schemes evoke different moods and as many design experts can tell you the color in a room can actually affect the emotions of the people in it!
People use their living rooms for different purposes. For those who want their living room space to be a family friendly cheerful place that is a little on the casual side then color palettes that contain 'happy' colors like a buttery soft yellow, a subtle cream or even a bolder color like orange can all help the space feel that way to everyone who enters it.
Other people prefer that their living room be a tranquil place to relax away from the stresses of the outside world. Blues are great for achieving such a vibe as are soft pastel shades of purple and green.
There are certain colors that if you are going to add them to your living room at all you should do so very carefully. As well as being a powerful color red can also evoke strong negative emotions like anger so it should be used sparingly in any room. Black and white can work well in a very contemporary, sparsely furnished living room but it is not a color palette that is very warm or friendly so may not be the right choice for a space that the whole family will use.
