The living room, often the heart of a home, deserves to be a vibrant and inviting space. One way to achieve this is through the clever use of color. In this exploration, we unveil seven eye-catching living room color combinations that defy the mundane, offering a burst of life to your interiors.
Browns, Blacks, Whites, & Greens
Abstract Elegance: Step into architect Paul Bates' hillside Birmingham home, where a white-walled living room becomes a canvas for sophistication. Dominated by abstract paintings from Belgian artist Jean-Marc Louis, the space is anchored by an Italian articulating movable chandelier in black and brass, hanging gracefully from the vaulted ceiling.
Deep Plum & Mossy Light Green
Personalized Opulence: Journey to the Upper East Side, where designer Lucy Doswell transforms a parlor into a personal haven. A tufted deep plum corner couch stands boldly against a graphic mossy light green wallcovering, beautifully balancing loftiness with a touch of intimacy.
Burnt Red & Light Yellow
California Dreaming: In the California home designed by Palmer Weiss, burnt orange drapery by Logan Montgomery Textiles takes center stage. Surrounding a wall of windows, this color combination comes to life with additional yellow accent pieces like a chair and pillows from Lee Industries, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Pale Apricot and Blood Orange
Warmth in Abundance: Explore Summer Thornton's Chicago townhouse, where an enormous orange sofa reigns in the apricot living room. Complemented by a velvet mohair chair with woven bouillon fringe (Samuel & Sons), the room emanates warmth and style.
Beach Pink and Soft Blues
Subtle Serenity: On Block Island, designer Miles Redd orchestrates a living room inspired by a flowery linen by Blithfield. Delicate pink and barely-there blue hues cover plush sofas and tufted armchairs, enhanced by the use of rattan drum tables, creating a beachy vibe that soothes the senses.
Reimagined Red, White, and Blue
Dramatic Contrasts: In an Upper West Side pied-à-terre, designer Anthony Barrata defies vast spaces with striking colors and dramatic furnishings. An American picture by Tomory Dodge takes advantage of expansive height, reimagining the classic red, white, and blue palette.
Sunshine Yellow and Muted Peach
Vibrant Personality: Designer Angie Hranowsky infuses personality into every room of a late-20th-century Tudor in Austin. The bright living area, adorned with vibrant yellow wall colors, reflects a sunny disposition, giving each room a distinct and lively personality.
