Red, White & Taupe
It’s amazing how you can modernize a traditional palette by tweaking one color. The red, now a lighter, slightly rosier shade, instantly gives this combo a trendier, more feminine feel. If your furniture is primarily neutral, this is a MUST try.
Ivory, Gray & Spruce Green
Nature’s a pro at creating beautiful color palettes. This slightly earthy combo works well together thanks to its natural simplicity. Keep ornaments, gift wrap and décor in shades of ivory and gray, and let your tree and garlands shine.
Chartreuse, Gold & White
We love this combination for its versatility. The white and gold are seasonal classics, so chances are you already have décor to work with in these hues. The chartreuse is a clever addition that gives it a fresh, perky vibe.
Orange & Teal
The holidays are all about indulgence and there’s something really decadent about orange and teal together. They’re also somewhat opposite one another on the color wheel which is why this delicious pairing works so well.
The monochromatic teal color scheme of this modern living room pops against background elements in neutral tones of gray and white. Gold accents bring a modern-retro vibe to the polished space. Roman shades have a similar hue to the paneled accent wall, allowing them to "disappear" visually while still adding privacy and filtering light for TV viewing.
Traditional Living Room with Neutral, Modern Color Palette
In the living room, designers have given new life to this traditional space. The furniture has been reupholstered to blend with the updated, modern colors of the space. This neutral color palette blends with the traditional artwork hanging on the wall to create a room that marries old world charm with new world style.
This neutral living room is accentuated by pops of green and orange with the addition of throw pillows, artwork and a shag area rug. Amidst the retro color scheme, a skirted sofa, bamboo Roman shades and matted artwork ground the contemporary design.
Transitional Living Room Boasts Trendy Color Palette
Dusty purple, navy blue and cool gray create a deep, trendy color palette in this tasteful living room. A wood media console adds an earthy touch to the design, and a fiddle leaf fig tree breathes life into the space.
Transitional Living Room With Coastal Color Palette
Designer David Bromstad transformed this once empty and lifeless space into a beachy getaway. A neutral palette with pops of sea-inspired color is a breath of fresh air for the living room. The sun-drenched look of the laminate flooring enhances the room's beachy appeal.
Waterfront Living Room Features Coastal Color Palette
Glass doors and an abundance of windows allow natural light to flood this waterfront beach cottage, making the soft ocean breeze almost palpable. A light, coastal color palette of neutrals, soft blues and coral enhances the breezy, beach-inspired atmosphere.
Eclectic Living Room With Monochromatic Color Palette
Looking at it now, it's hard to believe that this space was ever dark or outdated. With its tall ceilings and expansive windows, the living room called for an unassuming, monochromatic palette that would allow the garden views to be the main attraction. So, designer Veronica Solomon framed the views with willowy curtains in white and then pulled in stylish, neutral furnishings.
