      When you consider the paint colors for living room walls, the color of the wall should be coordinated with the furniture and the outdoor environment. After all, the furniture, such as sofa sets and tea tables are relatively more expensive, so when you are choosing the paint colors for the living room walls, often match them with the furniture. If the furniture color is very deep, you can choose some bright paints, otherwise the whole environment will be very dark and appears to be gloomy. If the outdoor is a green belt, when green light scattering into the interior, the light and warm decorative wall, such as pale purple, yellow or pink, will create a sunny-like outdoor atmosphere. If the outdoor is a big red brick or other red reflective walls, the best living room paint colors should be light yellow or light brown, which gives a person a kind of smooth feeling.

      The modern paint colors for living room can be bold. The traditional sense of color matching taboo has long been broken by designers, therefore, "hit color" has become a fashion. Red is the most beautiful color to arouse happiness, but too much of it will easily get people upset. A large area of the peak green with some red, will resolve the conflict of peak green coming up with the red color, and also make the space more vivid.

      Many people think that the paint colors on the color card are exactly the same as the color of the wall, but it is a misunderstanding. Because of the light, the reflection and other reasons, after all sides of the room are painted, the color of the wall will look deeper than the color card. Therefore, it is recommended that you choose the paint colors for your living room walls with a slightly lighter color number in the color card. And if you like dark colors, you can tune with the selected color card.
