You will also find tips for keeping it looking like new as it survives the abuse that your family, friends and pets put it through during the course of the year.

Adding Splashes Of Color To Your Living Room


If you have a living room that you have decided to decorate in basic colors, such as beige and white, then you may be wondering how you can add just enough color to keep things looking lively enough without throwing off the uniform color scheme you have worked so hard to achieve. There are some things you can do to add colors subtly, without overdoing it and this article will point you in the right direction.

Hang pictures that add a little color

Since your living room is done in specific colors, you want to get pictures that include one or more of those colors, while adding a few other colors. It's important for you to make sure the added colors that the pictures have are also balanced out by including those colors in one or more of the other ideas offered in this article. Otherwise, the living room may appear uneven color-wise if the only place those colors are added is on one wall of the living room.

Set out a vase or another decoration that has a bright color

You can use a decorative and colorful vase, colorful candles or other types of decoration that help to put those extra colors out there. Keep in mind that you can use just about anything to add those colors in the living room, including some large and colorful books strategically placed in the right location.

Use the right curtain ties

If your curtains are largely colored in one of the main basic colors, then you can add the perfect splash of color to compliment your extra coloring by using curtain ties. Since you can find them in just about every color and shade, it will be easy for you to find ones that really help give you the desired affect that you are trying for.

Use an area rug

A fantastic way for you to pull all of the colors together in the center of the room is to get the right large area rug for the space. You can find area rugs that display so many different blends of colors that you can find the perfect one that really helps you to complete the exact look you are aiming for with regards to both your decoration style and the colors you are trying to incorporate. You can also get smaller rugs you can put in other areas that help you to expand the feel of the living room to other areas, such as hallways and dining rooms.
