Living room interior colors and combinations
Basic rules for color matching
According to the well-known rule of designers, these proportions are used – 60:30:10. The main part is occupied by the main coloring, 30% is additional, and 10% are bright accents and blotches.
An example of such proportions: beige complements green, and interspersed with a turquoise tone (curtains, throw pillows).
Additional colors should be in harmony with the main one. It can be a contrast, differ by several tones, but in any case be combined with the main one.
Sometimes designers make the two colors the main ones, but it also requires blotches of another range.
There will be spectacular colors in the living room interior, if you combine several similar shades from the color wheel.
Sometimes designers in this way combine 4 – 5 shades.
Living room in a dark color should be well lit and spacious, as such tones hide the area.
The choice of textures and patterns
Inexpressive textures of small and medium size, combined with a calm pastel range suitable for small rooms. They will give the room coziness, especially if imitating textiles.
In fairly spacious and bright rooms, you can use expressive textures against the background of rich and bright palettes.
The living room will appear visually a bit more spacious and airy if you use mirror surfaces or facets in combination with light colors (wall, ceiling or panel).
Bright surfaces with beautiful glossy gloss will make the main room more visually, and also create a feeling of purity and freshness.
Good colors for the living room and their combinations.
We suggest you to consider the best colors for the living room and their successful combinations.
The living room in white looks elegant. Such a room will give everyone a sense of freshness and cleanliness.
Depending on the selected combinations, it can express frosty freshness (combination with blue, blue), sea breeze (blue, azure, turquoise) or summer breath (lime, orange, yellow). Also white is in harmony with black and red.
Drop the stereotype that the living room in black colors will look gloomy and dull. In skillful design hands, black will personify chic, impeccable taste and elegance.
But it should be realized in a spacious and sufficiently lit room. It can be used in a duet with a different color, and as expressive inclusions.
White, red, yellow, light gray, green goes well with black.
