Colors For Modern Living Room, Chromatic Vitality
The living room is the central room, that backbone of any home, whether a house or an apartment. It is the space where you welcome guests, where you socialize and catch up with the family and relax at the same time. Under these circumstances, the room deserves a little more attention from you, be it furniture, accessories, colors and other details that make the difference. We will this time take a look at colors and see how carefully picked and mixed hues can give a room a strong touch of vitality. Below are several examples to inspire you in choosing colors for modern living room:
The first image shows a room with a seemingly sober look, but the colors come quickly into play and remove that impression swiftly. The dark to light tones of grey blend with the winter white harmoniously, creating two separate chromatic plans. Their dominant presence is broken by spots of vivid colors in the accessories, pillows and lamp shade.
Again a mix of colors that lends dynamism to the living. The combination of shades of turquoise, jade green and yellow-green giving the room a cohesive and sophisticated look.
Others prefer neutral colors which make a fine background in any room. If you add accessories in stronger colors, like muted red or bright hues, then the room gets a chromatic balance, exuding a peaceful air for a perfect respite place.
Colors and patterns, a combination that brightens up any room. In the image below, the black and white classic color palette s quickly offset by insertions of different blue tones. The room thus appears to be visually layered, with the black and white foreground and a blue dominated background.
A modern living with a classy presence, full of soberness. To keep the space from looking too dark, the designer chose light cream furnishings and draperies, visually balancing the whole room. The wall lamp and the flower on the table come to bring extra light and vitality to the inert space.
Again, colors make the best statement in this next image, perfectly combining and giving the room a dynamic and energetic look. We tend to believe we are looking at a classic living unless the splash of colors reminded us of modern interior design trends.
