My Living Room Needs Color! :)


I am trying to add color to my living room. It is way too dark right now. I am not in the market (budget) to buy new furniture so all large pieces must stay. I am looking at possiblities of adding a rug under the table, pillows, and different panels (maybe even changing to a full length rod) Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Yours is an easy fix.
Pillows would add a good splash of colour. Like lime green or powder blue. The candle on the table already pops.
You could add a vase or some other object in the same colour to the mantle.
It wouldn't hurt to lighten the shade of carpet, especially with a baby. Darker shades show every tiniest piece of lint

First off, you have a lovely home. Maybe, you could change the color of the curtains and throw pillows. You could also put a vase somewhere with flowers bursting with varied colors in it.

Here is a picture of things I am trying. The panels are obviously the wrong size (length) but I liked the color with the pillows and will order longer lengths if color works out. Thoughts? What else should I add?

Hi,
Your livingroom furniture are in dark colors so, u have to have light colors in walls.
Some interior designers recommend having a lighter colored floor and ceiling and darker walls in smaller spaces. This give the illusion of increased space.
but kindly note u have dark furniture as in the photo

Do you need to have any curtains at all? Will the blinds be enought to block out the light? I find the curtains to be really distracting and attention-grabbing, when they should probably just melt into the decor of the room. If you need to have the curtains, I would try something even lighter, a very light tan or light olive green to match the olive in the pillows and candle.

You have an interesting mix of modern and traditional elements in your home. Perhaps the curtains could have a modern, funky pattern with olive, white, tan colours?
