color to paint my living room


I just bought my first home, It's a new mobile home I am removing all trim peices covering the seams and filling them with drywall compount, the kitchen is done and painted. I went with white trim with sponge toffee for the walls looks great. The living room is connected to the kitchen, I am really puzzled on what colour to paint the living room, Here are a few pics, any idea's would be great.
Thanks

I like blue.

It reminds me of being outside.

But so does green.

I have a similar yellow (toffee) color in my livingroom which shares a wall with my dinning room. I painted the shared wall a burgundy wine and it compliments very nice. However not sure such a deep color would go well with your furniture.

I would stick to a lighter color. It's a small home so you don't want to overwhelm it with color and create claustrophobia. In general light colors create an illusion of space. I would suggest a soft taupe or cream color to compliment the yellow.

I like the shade of yellow you used. Just painted our FR a similiar color.
I think the color depends on what type of atmosphere your trying to create. For example if you want dramatic-lively then go with a contrasting color in the blue or red family. For more subtle-cozy use a complimently color in the earthtones. I agree with AlyssaQB, darker colors will close it in so I would opt for a lighter shade. Also I would suggest switching out the vertical for wood or faux wood blinds.

I would recommend a lighter and more toned down version of the same color for the living room area - that way the colors will flow and look related, without overwhelming the space.

Hope this helps,

There is too much neutral colors in this room. Choose a lively and bright color to freshen up a little bit. My suggestion would be no beige or creamy colors this would make your room boring. Paint it in a fresh light greenish color this would give your room freshness and life. Add some similar color pillows on your sofa.

I would go with a light earth tone color. Beige perhaps.

the white color goes pretty well with light apple . . . i have seen it rarely but it looks very much catch and attractive with the white color . but i prefer using your favorite color in your living room . cause you are going to spend most of your time in your living room .

I agree with most of them to stick with lighter shades. Earth colors would make the whole place warm and cozy.

Why don't you paint it the same colour as the kitchen?

A mossy green wall color would work in harmony with your kitchen color. Personally I wouldn't pick the cheerful yellow, but color is a personal choice.
