One of the quickest ways to make a big statement in design is with color. It always has a big impact. If you love color, then filling your home with bright, vibrant colors is a wonderful way to embrace it. The results can be truly spectacular.
A living room is a great space in which to use lots of color. Generally, it’s the space where you will entertain and want a certain amount of energy to be flowing, making it the perfect spot for color that will stir up those emotions. There are a lot of different ways in which to use it. You can keep all major elements neutral, such as the walls and sofa, and bring in color through your accessories, or your biggest pieces can be the statement-makers in full color and you can balance it with neutrals elsewhere. Either option can be beautiful.
Here are 10 examples of colorful living rooms to give you some ideas and inspiration.
