7 Timeless Living Room Paint Colors

Living rooms are where we spend a majority of our time in our homes. It’s the most used room to host and enjoy time together. Don’t let your eye sore become the talk of the family this winter. Here are some ideas to get you started with timeless living room paint colors.

Living rooms have grown in recent years into great rooms. Since the color you choose will likely run throughout your kitchen-dining-living room, make sure you choose something you can live with year round. Color can help you enhance the mood or exaggerate the size of the space you paint.

Black, white and blue

Black and white is always on point. Add some color to it with a rich powder blue. Add a blue with warm undertones to avoid a cold feeling in the room. Use the color to inspire shades near it into accessories like pillows, rugs and decorations.

Red and cream

White, cream and beige are typical choices for walls for good reason. They make spaces feel bigger and cleaner than other colors. Don’t get lost in the shuffle of white and cream by adding a pop of red into the mix. You can choose to go bright and bold or deep and minimal. Deep cranberry throws are just as effective as bright red furniture.


Pink is making a comeback in home styling, like it or not. A muted, dusty pink is a way to add a feminine touch to your home without going really girly with bubblegum color. Use the color in your living room or kitchen space paired with a wainscoting or consider it as an accent wall. Match in natural woods and off whites for a liveable pink.

Burnt orange and gold

Warmth abounds when you pair together burnt orange and gold. The orange as a deep color can make the room feel overpowering. Use golden touches to reflect light around the room and liven it up. The orange can feel warm with the proper undertones. Make sure to choose a deep color, instead of sunburnt.

Chartreuse and turquoise

Keep the living area interesting pairing turquoise and chartreuse together. The colors are close enough to give you a monochromatic feel while still feeling moodier and deeper than blue and green. Your color choices within this palette gives you a natural color feel to pair with nearly any furniture style for a winning pairing.

Gray, gold and peacock blue

Spice up a rather plain white living room with the colors of a peacock’s feather. The blue and gold paired with gray gives you a vibrant but not overwhelming room to live in. It’s a rich combination of colors when used appropriately. Do not overdo it! Vivid colors can cause eye strain if it’s used too much.

Mint and Pink

Sure, it sounds like the colors of a candy tray, but these retro hues create a cool and calm feeling in your space. Add in some gold or white to break up the older feel of the scheme.
