Take the flower wall paper down; its time to start really thinking about living schemes. Most people never even thinking about living room, because the colors are already chosen for them with the furniture that they like, and the home that they have purchased. Think about how many people buy furniture unstained, or uncovered, and at the same time, purchases a home that has yet to be painted on the inside. Right, not too many people do that, so we must focus on the obvious truth about living room color schemes, much of it is already chosen for us. The best way to approach a schemes is think about what you can do, not what you can not do. This means to look at whatever you have the ability to change, and change it as much as possible to match some type of living room color scheme.
The single choice of paint color will change the entire atmosphere of your living room. To find the perfect color for your home, start by deciding what you want the room to feel like. Making the choice of what color to paint your living room can be difficult because of the myriad of colors available at every paint store. Dont start out trying to pick the right color and the exact shade. Break down the decision process and begin by looking at the big picture. Try to decide what you want the room to feel like. If you want the room to be peaceful and relaxing, think of light, natural colors, such as soft whites, creams, beiges, sage greens and other earth tones that give you a soothing feeling. If you want a cheery room, pick cheery colors, such as bright white, yellow, warm pink or any color that feels sunshiny and happy. For an invigorating, classy room, choose warm, dark colors, from burnt orange to eggplant to chocolate. To make your living room cool and posh, pick stark black, white and cool blues.
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.
Wherever possible set furniture against the walls to open up as much floor space as you can. Remove any clutter, and steer clear of knick-knacks and other small accessories that make a room look congested and cluttered. To add color to the walls without taking away any visual space, use no more than one large accent per wall, preferably something brightly colored that will help light up the room. Leave windows bare if you can but if not use light-weight fabrics or sheers. Cozy up a Large Room Perhaps you have the opposite problem - your living room is way too big! This often makes a room appear a bit cold, making it feel as though it is lacking in personality. To make this room look more intimate and appealing, use rich, dark colors such as burgundy, navy and green. Browns, gold tones and autumn colors will work as well. While you dont have to paint every wall a dark color, consider painting two opposing walls a rich shade as a contrast to the other walls. If you have a high beamed or cathedral ceiling, consider painting it a darker tone as well. This will visually bring the ceiling down.
Synchronizing Colors and Themes The first thing to do after you have decided which decorating style theme you will use for your living room in your new home or while renovating your existing home, you have to decide which color scheme you will use. You have to keep in mind to color coordinate with the color theme of your furniture, upholstery, furnishing accessories, floor covering, carpets, etc. Another option is to begin with the furniture and coordinating paint colors with it. You may try to start with the major piece of furniture in the room or the rooms central point. Either use balancing colors or make the focal point stand out with something light around it. Choosing Classic Colors That Still Works
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.
