When choosing furniture for your living room, go neutral. Shades like beige, tan and caramel go wonderfully with many other colors. With neutral furnishings and flooring, you can easily change or update the look of the room with accessories like throw pillows, area rugs, window treatments and wall hangings.
Once you have got your neutral furniture, figure out what you would like your accent color or colors to be. Jewel tones like ruby, emerald and sapphire always make gorgeous accent colors. However, sandy pastels like peach and periwinkle can bring a Southwestern flair to your living room. Almost any color that you like can look fantastic in the living room.
The living room should be attractive and welcoming, yet comfortable. The best living rooms are the ones that make you feel at home, where you are not afraid to kick off your shoes and relax!
