Inspiring Living Room Ideas

Could your living room use a little more life? Is it looking just a wee bit worn and tired, making you feel a little less than energetic yourself? Then maybe these inspiring living room ideas will give your space just the lift you need which in turn will rev up your mood as well.

One sure way to create the right mood is with color. Below, I show an example with my own living room and the color swatch I made up for my other blog, Palette Wheel.

Every color has a meaning and is something to consider when decorating a room. This particular palette is nice for a living room because brown means comfort. Think about nicely worn brown leather. Shades of yellow are cheerful and fun, even the most subtle shades can brighten a room like a sunny day. The color of aqua is supposed to be soothing to the soul and open the lines of communication – perfect for a living room!

There are of course many palettes that work well together. For a more contemporary space, gray works great for a base color being that it is very neutral and refined and can be accented with a myriad of different colors.

Here is what I found for exceptional living room ideas that are full of uplifting and welcoming style.
