The first on the list is one of the favorites for upcoming year .
It's green .
The color of life , nature and healing green is the most stressful and relaxing color of the spectrum .
So it's common to use as a background in residential spaces because as human beings , we are used to seeing it in large quantities .
There are a lot of green shades to choose .
But one of the favorites right now is sage green , a kind of gray green perfect for small spaces or when you're looking for a fresh appearance , since green is the color of nature , you can get inspired by it to create the entire color palette for your living room .
Pair your green tone with warm neutrals and materials like wood jude seagrass , golden details , linen leather sofas or armchairs as green is on the side of cool colors in the color wheel .
I recommend combining it with warm materials and texture to create a balanced color palette .
Also black accents are perfect to create contrast , use them in lamps , coffee tables , handles or accessories .

The second color is dark gray .
The favorite one if your living room has a contemporary minimalist industrial or Scandinavian look , this color is elegant and dramatic , but before using it , ensure to have a good amount of natural light in the space and a good lighting plan for the night time .
Since it's a neutral color , we have an infinite choice to combine depending on your living room style .
If you're looking for a or Scandinavian look , you can combine a monochromatic color scheme with other neutral tones like white and light gray .
If you want to use this color scheme , I recommend adding some elements in wood , natural materials and greenery sparingly in the room to create a cozy atmosphere .
Dark gray is a good choice if you're looking for an industrial style to achieve this look paired with other neutrals like white , beige tape , brown , lighter grays and textures like rustic wood brick brush , gold and tan leather .
Another way to use dark gray , especially if you're looking to have a contemporary glam style is to play it with vibrant colors such as mustard emerald green , orange or pink .
Use it as an accent in your pillows , arms accessories or sofa .
Let's continue with the next color which is the timeless white .
When talking about colors for the living room , we can't forget to talk about white .
White is the most versatile color in interior design because you can change the mood of your space using your furniture , decorative items like pillows , flowers , ottomans or by painting an accent wall in your favorite color , a wide living room doesn't have to be dull .
Some of the most popular color palettes used in white are the contemporary color palette .
This is versatile and elegant .
Combine your white walls with warm neutrals , black and wooden furniture .
If you prefer a relaxing look , you can go for all white .
No , it's not a boring palette if you use the right texture and materials .
This color scheme is convenient if you're looking for a minimalist and timeless living room .
When using all white in interior design , they keep is to include tactile texters and warm materials like wood to create contrast include patterns and texture fabrics in your sofa , armchair , pillows and dry wall coverings like molding or panels to give dimension to the room .
Another way to create a color palette using white is by pairing it with your favorite color as an accent .
You can have all the background and essential pieces in white and include small accents using your favorite color skin .
For example , use white and two contrasting colors like blue and orange or green and pink for your pillows , armchairs , ornaments or artwork .
Guys combining your favorite color is very easy .
I will leave you the link below to my video and free guide on combining colors using the color wheel .
I'm sure it will be beneficial for your decorating journey if you like neutral colors because of their versatility but want something other than white while still maintaining a timeless look .
I think you'll enjoy the next color gray .
A color that is the perfect balance between cool gray and warm beige .
This tone is very popular for residential spaces because it's versatile .
Also trendy design styles like and contemporary Scandinavian use it as the primary color of the space because it helps achieve warm and inviting dead calm and serene rooms .
Since it's a neutral and soft color , we can try different color palettes depending on your taste .
If you're looking for a warm candy look , carry a warm gray stone with other neutrals like white gray or beige .
In this case , adding touches of black mat through the accessories will anchor the composition also , wood and natural materials will create a balanced living room .
The gray is a perfect tone for people who love neutral spaces .
But if you want to add a pop of color , you can do it but make sure to pick muted colors like sage green or dusty pink .
A piece of advice is to be careful when selecting a gray stone for your backdrop .
Some can look more beige and some can look more gray depending on the mix of the two colors .
Select the best one to complement your furniture and Decor .
The next color is blue .
This color doesn't need a long explanation by green .
Blue is a favorite in residential spaces because it has a common effect and goes well with many colors and styles .
Most importantly , it's a color that doesn't go out of style blue is a versatile hue that can move from dark and moody to soft and calming .
It's a good color for contemporary traditional bohemian to more fancy styles like art deco and glam .
Depending on the style , you must pick the blue tone for your space .
If you're looking for a clam , elegant look , pick a dark blue tone and combine it with materials and textures such as velvet , golden metals , marble or crystals .
If your style is leaning toward contemporary , combine dark blue with neutrals like gray beige or white .
In this case , touches of natural materials can work very well to a warm and modern look .
If you prefer a fresh and calming feel , balance a light blue tone with warm neutrals and materials such as wood , jute sea grass , rotan cane weaving and fabrics like cotton or linen .
In this case , a black accent could work very well to maintain a humble and a slick look .
Natural materials pop against this shade of blue , use it evenly in all the living room to get a cohesive space .
