living room colour decor ideas – green, brown, and blue
In anticipation of our big move, I’ve started playing around with colour combinations for our new living room.
Our current living room is a combo of a grey/blue slate coloured couch (it’s darker than the colour in the photo … I couldn’t find an exact match and the colour looks very different once you add the green into the mix) and chair and dark brown bookshelves and coffee tables. Ideally I’d like to make the room pop a bit more so we’ve been playing with colour combinations online to see what appeals to us most. The room we’ll be moving into is very bright, decent sized, and part of my in-laws house, albeit a rental unit upstairs, so I don’t want to pick a colour that is too loud. And, I want to avoid yellow because after however many apartments over the years, this tenant is sick of yellow walls. So we’re looking at something in a light green shade. Bright enough to make the room warm, but not too sage or dreary that it reminds you of a hospital.
A long time ago I lived with a roommate who had apple green walls and I just loved it. In fact, to date, that apartment was one of my favourites because of the way it used colour.
So what do you think? Any suggestions?
