Is your living room alive? This high-traffic heart of your home deserves a shake-up every few years to keep your home feeling inspired. Find out how to compare popular living room paint colors and furniture with Rhode Island Design Center's help to refresh your Providence or West Warwick home.

1. Funky Yellow

Mustard is the new talk of the town. Paint a single wall or your entire living room with this fun and funky color to contrast an otherwise clean, crisp home. Mustard yellow provides just the right touch of retro without feeling outdated. Throw in a few funky light fixtures or a well-placed mirror for added light, and you’ll have an instant living room conversational piece.

2. Bold Blue

Named Color of the Year for 2020 by Pantone, classic blue is a deep color that makes a huge impact in the interior design world. Perfectly poised between classic and modern, this shade of blue is a powerful option for your home. It may be too deep for your entire living room, so consider using it to paint an accent wall. Purchasing new furnishings can be a way to incorporate this color into your home without hiring a painter or getting out your paintbrushes.

3. Minimalist Gray

Whether you’re a minimalist purist or need a calm backdrop to powerful design pieces in your living room, consider a neutral gray for your walls. Unlike the commanding presence of blue or mustard yellow, gray easily blends into the background and adds a relaxing mood. Add a small place of personality with blue-gray paint, one of the most popular paint colors for living rooms.

4. Crisp White

If white walls make you feel uninspired or uninterested, you probably don’t have the right furniture. Don’t settle for an off-white or tan, which can be off-putting, but go for pure white to open up your living room. A single piece of boldly colored furniture can create a pop of color. If this isn’t enough visual interest for your home in Providence, strategically place a few wall hangings, plants, and other features to add personality to your living room.

5. Serene Green

Stately, serene, and simple, deep green walls offer a great change of pace in your living room. Compared to other colors, green feels much more natural and airy. Even if you don’t have a lot of natural light or windows to outdoor greenery, a dark green might be all you need to bring a little bit of the natural world into your home. Like deep blue and mustard yellow, a little dark green can go a long way. Start with an accent wall before committing to an entire living room paint project.
