Get Your Home Office Ready for a RemodelMarch 22, 2018
There’s nothing quite the same as the feeling one gets when exploring new living room décor options. If you love home décor, this is one of the biggest rooms that you have to work with, both in terms of its actual size as well as its importance in your home. Your living room is obviously one of the big centers of home life and you want a décor job that’s going to look and feel good day in and day out while still wowing guests on special occasions. That begins with finding the right color scheme to govern your living room. Home décor, just the same as fashion, can go in and out of style.
To that end, here are the leading color trends for living room designs in 2018.
Bold Colors Are Back
We live in dramatic times and our living room palettes reflect that. While there’s still certainly a big place for minimalism in the world of interior décor, and we’ll get to that in a second, the fact of the matter is that bold colors are back and in a big way! One of the biggest living room painting trends is going with big, bright colors and solid patterns. Whether you opt for deep blues, rich purples, or even lush greens, these types of colors can be a great way of brightening up a room while making a space look incredibly modern.
A Regal Look
White, tan, taupe, beige, cream – these are some of the most common living room paint colors. One color that most people never consider for their living rooms is purple, yet it’s poised to make a splash in the living room decorating world in 2018. If you’re looking to make a splash with your living room paint job, you might want to consider giving your space a regal look with a shade of purple.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that every living room needs more purple than a Prince or Jimi Hendrix cover. It really is a matter of matching different shades of purple to your existing décor. Another great option? Using that purple not as your main color but one to accent the boundaries of your room.
As stated, bolder and brighter colors are back. That said, you want your living room décor to stand the test of time and not be out of style a year or two from now. The great thing about purple is the fact that it’s a bold and bright enough color to fit in with today’s trendy design ethos while still having a classy look to be lastingly fashionable for years to come.
The New Direction of Minimalism
For the bigger, bolder direction that many are taking living room décor, there’s still a lot to be said for minimalism. While an understated, minimalist approach can still make for an elegant living room, you may want to add a few dashes of color to keep up with the times. For example, you can add thin accents of complementary colors along walls painted in white, cream, eggshell, or other traditional minimalist colors. This allows you to retain the overall minimalist tone of your room while adding some bolder colors as well.
All this and more can help you make your living room décor pop in 2018.
