A rich, late-sunset look for this Colonial-style house. This paint scheme is a lively balance of the rich burnt orange and crisp white trim. From Devoe Paints, this is called Antique Gold.
Nothing earth-shattering: the owner merely darkened the neutral on one wall and added a muted green to another wall. But what a transformation–it pulls the white trim away from the walls and adds more visual interest to an otherwise bland, monotone color scheme.
From Devoe Paints, a smart living room before and after color transformation. With just one accent wall color, the room is toned down considerably and the sofa pops right out. The picture and decorative plates also have a better background for display.
Earlier in our photo gallery, we saw Cabin Red, from Valspar/Eddie Bauer, in an actual cabin. Now we apply the same color to a room of a fancier style. It works well when juxtaposed with Oyster in traditional settings such as this one.
With just the right color balance, you can pair up blues and golden browns in your living room. From Dutch Boy.
A deep, rich cabin-y red, remarkably called Cabin Red, from Valspar’s Eddie Bauer collection.
The best thing about this color from Glidden (name: Soft Suede) is that it stands back and lets the pictures, pillows, and other accessories give the room its punch.
Ready for something completely different? These living room colors from Benjamin Moore, while ordinary in themselves, add snap and pizazz when laid across the walls as horizontal stripes; and when these stripes are of differing widths.
A strong brown from Ralph Lauren Home, Broadway (that’s the color) lends an air of sophistication to this urban loft. Add a splash of silvery chrome with Design Studio White on the right-hand wall to give extra power to this accent wall.
Instant warmth: these colors from Dutch Boy have tinges of orange and red to spice up your living room.
Ralph Lauren Home’s Tangier Island bathes this room with a soft, fresh feeling not found in the darker browns. It’s a great color paired with dark hardwoods and busy fabrics. Trim is called Tibetan Jasmine, also Ralph Lauren Home.
