If you’re trying to sell your house, any home stager will tell you that a room should be one of three shades: white, gray or tan. Those shades are represented here, sure, but if you’re not sold—and you want to explore some off-the-beaten-path options to truly make your space feel yours—look no further. These living room color ideas are designed to inspire you.
As you picture them in your house, consider weighing the same factors designer Karen B. Wolf does to find your perfect shade: “We think about how the color works in the room, how it relates to the trim, to the history of the home and how it evokes a feeling,” she says. Once you’ve found your favorite, all that’s left is to pick up your paint essentials (Backdrop conveniently sells everything you need in one kit), so scroll on and get started.
