Four ways to add color to your living room

When it comes to home décor, not everyone has time or money to do the entire makeover of the living room. But, don’t worry, you don’t have to spend large amounts of money to have a nicely arranged living room.

Depending on what mood you are trying to achieve, there are a couple of techniques and methods which can help you bring colors to your living room and make it feel alive again.

Make an accent wall

You don’t have to use a bright color to paint all of the walls in your living room. You would be surprised what kind of an effect only one wall can achieve. It will change the focal point without involving you in major decorating projects.

For instance, if your room has a niche, then that’s a perfect choice for extra color. You can select a bold shade, contrasting color picked from a floral decoration and sketches of flowers, or a subtle color darker than the rest of the walls. Any change in tone will add interest and splash.

Add a couple of pillows


Nothing can add a splash of color like a set of unique cushions. They come in various shapes, sizes and patterns, so your choice is vast. Whether you choose subtle ones for a floral sofa or colorful for a neutral sofa, they will provide you with comfort and break down the monotony.


Plants and flowers add color, scent, personality and they just feel good in about any space. If you aren’t in them or you just don’t have a green thumb, then ask someone to recommend you plants and flowers that require minimal maintenance.

On the other hand, if you are gone from home a lot, then you should settle for artificial ones. You can buy them anywhere. In this case, they only need to be dusted and you don’t have to think about the watering.

Put some color on the floor

When decorating some space, we rarely think about floors. But, if you throw a colorful rug, strategically placed in front of a chair or under a coffee table, it can add color and texture to your living room. It can be put on any flooring system, and you can choose contrast shades to make a more significant impact.

You should look for carpets that have an interesting pattern and fits into the theme of your room.
