If you’re getting ready to decorate – or redecorate – your living room, the first thing you’ll need to decide on is a color scheme. By choosing a color scheme for your living room and sticking to it, you can ensure that your living room has a sense of style and gives off the right vibe. Having a color scheme will also make it easier to decide which furniture and home decor to buy.
In order to determine which color scheme is right for you, it’s a good idea to review popular color schemes for living room environments and understand what kind of ambiance they can help you create. To get started, review our list of 10 amazing color schemes for living rooms below. Which mix of hues will you relax in?
Black, White & Powder Blue
Add a subtle punch of color to the time-honored black and white scheme by simply tossing in a dash of soft, powdery blue. Whether you use it as a wall color, or for throw pillows and decor, it brings liveliness to a classic approach.
Consider: Black and White Adjustable Sofa
Turquoise, Yellow & Slate Gray
The quiet and shy gray plays an important role as backdrop to the pleasant brightness of the turquoise and yellow combination, making the saturated hues that much more vivid. These living room colors will make your Arizona home feel bright and inviting.
Gray, Gold & Peacock
This color scheme is fantastic when renting a home in which the walls must remain white. The golden touch adds an elegant appeal. The deep peacock hue and strong gray bring a vintage vibe when mixed with the gold.

Moody Blue & Browns
Perfect for a more intimate seating area, this color scheme lends an air of sophistication. It is great for an area of studying, reading or a cozy spot to enjoy your morning coffee. In our opinion, these are the best living room colors – and they are very popular in Arizona homes.

Mint Green & Pink
This is a wonderful color scheme for your living room if you are a lover of accessories and unique trinkets! The mint green and pink combo almost transports you into a Wes Anderson production – kind of vintage, but unapologetically poppy and fun.

Emerald & Black
This bold and confident color combination is quite dramatic. It is perfect for lovers of green and deep saturation, as well as those who want to make stunning statement.
Consider: Rockefeller Pendant Lamp
Shades of Purple

Ebony & Wood Brown
If you want to feel like you live in a cabin – even if you don’t – this color combination will definitely cultivate that forest feel. A dark ebony stain on staircases or walls looks beautiful against wood-finished floors and tables.
