The living room is the heart of our home – it is where we invite our guests and where the whole family comes together to relax and enjoy each other’s company. As such, it gives us the opportunity to create a cozy living space for ourselves, while expressing our unique personality to the outside world. The colors scheme we select, the furniture we opt for, every artwork and decoration we choose, is a statement of who we are. It is therefore essential not to take the furnishing and overall design of our living room lightly. Would you rather have a unique living space that really makes a statement? A soft, pastel colored den that helps you unwind after a hard day’s work? Or perhaps a vibrant, creative living room that really sets your home apart? If you’re finding it difficult to choose, fear not! We have over 70 gorgeous living room color ideas that will inspire you to transform your home!

Darker tones add a touch of style and sophistication to a room and, when used with the right furniture and decoration, can make a lasting impression on your guests.
