If you already have the furniture in neutral colors and dont want to spend money on buying new one, then a good idea to add color to your living room is to buy decorative cushions. Or even better, you can do them yourself! This way you will be able to choose the fabric you like most and the exact colors you want for your living room. Cushions not only add the color the room needs but also create a very inviting and comfortable feeling. Choosing cushions in colors that match or complement your area rug can make the room look beautifully put together. If your living room is of big dimensions and it is used for different purposes you can use room dividers to separate the areas for the different activities you do.
A color scheme is simply a coordinated effort amongst all the colors in the room to create a group, or scheme that is noticeable from a distance. Think about the stripes on a traditional prison uniform, the color scheme of that is easily identifiable as black, and white. Some rooms have single color schemes like brown, or red, or white. While most have multiple color schemes.One of the most iconic schemes of all time is the hunting lodge scheme. This is a deep brown color that most of the furniture comes out to be, matched with a dark green wall paper. The brown and green is then matched with natural wood accents from handmade furniture. This color scheme works well together because the green and brown contrast one and other to a point that is pleasing to the eye. While not all will want to go with the hunting lodge color scheme, there are plenty of other living room color schemes that one can utilize. One popular living room color scheme is that of grey on the walls, and tan on the furniture. The grey helps to keep the furniture the focal point, while the tan keeps the eyes from becoming too overwhelmed with color, this is a good example of a modest living room color scheme. Regardless of the schemes that you choose to implement, the important thing is that you become cognizant of what living room color schemes are, and how to create one that works for you.
Tip Number One: Brighter Shades Make a Space Look Bigger If you have a large living room, then darker colors might meet your needs. Or else, a lighter shade of paint is better. Eyes are usually attracted to the darker areas of a room, therefore darker colored walls can push your line of vision downward. Consequently, you will feel like the partitions tend to be closer to you than they really are. On the other hand, soft colored walls force your eyes to look up, and the result is a more open and expansive perspective. If you dont have an excessively big live able space or you are making the effort to decrease the feel of the size of the living room, you will want to use brighter shades connected with color.
Pottery One great common element that both the Moroccan decor and the Midwest decor have in common is the use of pottery. Pottery, although slightly different in style, unifies the two and allows some transition between the two decors. If you have generic, monochromatic, large pots or vases in your Midwest theme, you will probably be able to use them in the Moroccan theme, as well. Be careful with the colors and any possible designs that may be on the pots. If there are designs or decorations, they should be generic enough that they will look at home in the new decor. Fabric Another element that you will want to consider is the fabric that is in the room. While there are many different types of fabric in a Moroccan decor, it is important that there are no traces of the Midwest checks or plaids in the new room.
