Painting the walls in blue creates a backdrop against which you can play with the colour of the furniture, ranging from pastel colours to neutral shades or daring here and there with some brighter shades such as yellow or orange…

If you are afraid of being too daring by painting your walls blue, you can opt for a more ‘classic’ style, i.e. combine white walls with blue furniture, such as armchairs, a sofa or other objects, and combine the various existing types of blue: Indigo, Ottanio, Avio, Oceano etc…

It is not recommended to use dark blue in large quantities in large rooms: you may cause a depressing and gloomy atmosphere. Moreover, always make sure that the room is well lit by natural light, which, when combined with blue, will create bright and elegant shades.

Decorating the Living Room with Red

Decorating with red color 4

Decorating the living room with red: the colour of passion adds a touch of exclusivity to the room.

Decorating with red

All lovers of red should know that very little is needed to brighten up a monochromatic and characterless environment. If your living room is therefore monochromatic, you can decide to add small touches of colour, such as the upholstery of an armchair or a sofa, to give more personality to the space.

Decorating with red 1

So how best to use red in living room furniture? A good strategy, as we were saying before, is to choose this colour for single elements: for example for a chair, a sofa, a desk, a sideboard or a pouf. Alternatively, if you are not afraid to be daring, you can decide to distribute red in small doses throughout the room: for example, choose red cushions, curtains or carpets with a red print.

As red is a warm colour, it tends to make a room smaller: for this reason, in a small, dimly lit living room, it is better to avoid painting all the walls in this colour… Red is an energetic and lively colour: for this reason, it is better to use this colour only in the living area and not in the sleeping area.

To make your living room harmonious, you can combine the red colour of the walls with brown and in general with all shades of wood. A furnishing that skilfully combines white and red is certainly very impressive.

A large rug in the centre of the living room also gives a sense of warmth and completeness to the décor.
