Colour Blocking For A Modern And Vibrant Art Deco Living Room

Colour blocking for the walls in homes is slowly picking up the popularity it rightfully deserves. This living room is a true testament to that. The combination of tan, white, pink, and blue matches the rug, giving the room a high-definition look. The use of neutral-coloured furniture is a sensible choice to balance the mix-match of the plethora of hues.

Shape-Shift With Creative Wall Painting Ideas For Your Living Room

There are millions of ways to paint the walls in your home for uber-creative style. One of them is playing with various shapes. For instance, in the living room below, we painted a rectangle and a circle in a slightly different shade to break the monotony of dual-toned painted walls (that could have made the living room look like a jail). Coupled with the paint, the digital-printed, geometric-patterned rug gives the room a much-needed contrast. Try this style to make your living room the centre of attraction.

Dual-Toned Grey Paint Living Room Ideas

When it comes to wall paint, the white and grey combination is eternal. Coupled with yellow decor or furniture, it elevates the style quotient by multiple notches. This uber-stylish living room is a proof of that. Furthermore, the yellow sectional by the white exposed brick wall and the modular chest of drawers in the same mustard yellow hue by the dark grey wall create a pleasant contrast that makes the space stand out.

Try Pink And White For Bright Living Room Paint Ideas

Individually, pink and white are bright colours that can make any space look airy. But when they come together, the combination can create magic. For instance, in the living room shown in the image below, the pink wall works like a charm for the TV unit. The remaining white-coloured walls reflect light beautifully to make the room look brighter despite having a low ceiling. The various natural elements like bamboo dividers, cane window shutters and pendant light, abstract wooden coffee table, and jute threaded sofa are raising the bar of decor. The whole combination of white, pink, and yellow natural elements creates a warm, welcoming, impossible-to-forget living room design.

Trust us; if done correctly, it looks otherworldly. Take a cue from the living room shown in the image below.

Modern Paint Ideas To Elevate Your Living Room

Nothing screams elegance better than a well-painted, well-decorated home. And when you are fearless and adventurous about decorating your home, it usually does wonders. The living room below is the perfect example of that fearlessness. The homeowner wasn’t afraid to use three separate painting techniques on the walls. And the result is a living room with one wall painted solid grey, one painted grey and moss green horizontally, and the wall by the TV unit with vibrant colour blocking. Yet somehow, it amalgamates beautifully.
