Bright colorful living room ideas for your home

A neutral palette is always a safe bet but if you’re feeling adventurous, we have the perfect bright colourful living room ideas for you

Your living room is where you sit down with your family after a day’s hard work, where you rest and repose on holidays, and where you host guests for fun meals and lively conversations. That’s why this one room needs to be all of it – warm, welcoming and cheerful and exciting. One of the best ways to create a space that’s all these and bring out your creative side is to go for bright living room colours. The idea may seem outlandish at first, but we’ve picked some stunning designs that will surely make you fall in love with the idea of a bright and colourful living room. Let’s check them out!

Bring The Space To Life By Adding Pops Of Bright Living Room Colours

You might not want to go all out with bright colours in your living room, and that’s completely understandable. But you can still make this room come to life and turn it into a unique, memorable space by adding just a dose of vibrant. A great example is sprinkling pops of yellow across a light-hued room. It works well to make the room look vibrant but at the same time, it isn’t too bright or overwhelming on the eye. The yellow in the pillow, chair and decor make this living room a delight to the eyes. While yellow is a great choice, you can go for any other bright colour like pink or orange that goes well with the overall colour palette of your drawing room.

Bright Colourful Living Room Ideas Are Incomplete Without Colour Blocking

Using two different colours for your sofa and the wall is a fantastic way to infuse some colour and vibrance into your living room. Coral and dark blue look stunning yet elegant together. While you can choose any suitable combination of colours, if this one impresses you, enhance the room’s look further with some gold furniture, table lamps and planters. Leverage the colour blocking technique in your living room by pairing a soft shade with a bold colour. The softness of coral perfectly complements the dark blue sofa set – in fact, it even helps tone it down – and the result is a modern-looking space.

Accent Walls Are Popular In Bright Colourful Living Room Ideas

Neutral-coloured sofas are quite popular when it comes to living rooms designs. But even if you go for sofas of those shades, you can still add some colours and spice to your living room through an accent wall. Creating a bright-coloured accent wall is a superb way to make your living room stand out without going overboard. Just choose a sofa set that’s white, grey, light brown, or of similar tones, go for a bright colour for the wall behind it, and you’ll create a living room that is sure to attract people.

Go Unconventional With Bright Living Room Colours

While using teal or related shades in sofas is still common, how often do we think of painting a living room wall teal? Not enough! That’s one thing that certainly needs to change – given how classy and elegant this teal-coloured living room looks. Team it with some grey furniture, coordinated decor, and add tinges of golden here and there. The final result will be a stunning living room that’ll not only be perfect for everyday activities but also a delight for guests. Other great shades for bright colourful living room ideas are mint green, powder or pale blue, yellow, tangerine, pink and purple.
