If you want the room to be peaceful and relaxing, think of light, natural colors, such as soft whites, creams, beiges, sage greens and other earth tones that give you a soothing feeling. If you want a cheery room, pick cheery colors, such as bright white, yellow, warm pink or any color that feels sunshiny and happy. For an invigorating, classy room, choose warm, dark colors, from burnt orange to eggplant to chocolate. To make your living room cool and posh, pick stark black, white and cool blues.
A close floor plan layout consists of living room that has all four walls and a door much like an apartment or an older house. With a close floor plan, you will have more paint choices and can pick colors within different color from light to dark spectrum. Darker paint color adds excitement to a room with closed floor plan. You can accentuate beautiful moldings and other ceiling details with accent colors. If your living room is open to the foyer and the kitchen, be more careful in your color choices. It is much better to choose lighter paint color for an open living room adjacent to the kitchen and the hallway. You still can bring in accent colors on certain walls as you infuse the space with darker accent walls.
Decorative Painting Options - There are several different decorative painting options that you can use to decorate your walls. Some of these include stenciling, stamping and sponge painting. You may want to use a pattern from a piece of furniture or even an area rug. One way to tie the room together is to take the pattern from the area rug and then make a stencil using the pattern. This can then be transferred to the wall. This is easy to do as you only need to use tracing paper and acetate. Once you have a stencil, you can then put the same pattern on your wall as is reflected on your area rug.
Want a one-of-a-kind work of art for the living room? Well, you can hire mural artists to conceptualize and create a mural on the wall.
