Everybody is stressed out when it comes to the thought of repainting their home especially their Living Room ; and this is because you have so much to choose from. But once thought out in a peaceful state, the job isn’t too challenging . Start from choosing the kind of colour scheme ; light or dark, subtle or vibrant, monochromatic or complimentary and so on.
Here are a few key points, for example, a pale colour palette makes a small space appear larger, whereas, a dark one adds to the drama. If you have a small living space, opt for a maximum of three colours and run them throughout the colour scheme, including your walls and also the furniture. Those who are blessed with large Living spaces, it is easier to mix and match colours and elements and comparatively use more colours and patterns.
But this is not typical again, large living rooms with a monochromatic colour scheme look absolutely ravishing as well. Where browns, beige and creams look sophisticated, subtle and classy; bright tones and vibrant colours like shades of blue, pink and red offer enthusiasm and life to the space.
Matching furniture to the walls or keeping them in total contrast is an utter personal choice; both of these carry their own grace and charm. Doing a textured feature wall and keeping rest of the walls simple and plain is one of the safest ideas. But as they say, experimenting and creativity is the way to success, so it is never a bad idea to do something out of the box.
All is well that ends well; so there is just one thing to be kept in mind that it is ultimately your own space that you are decorating for your own self and there has to be no trauma about it.
