Large living room

taptoesenaJanuary 8, 2013
We are testing neutral color paint now for the mustard yellow walls you see here. Any ideas for this large living room? It opens to the kitchen.

Do you mean paint color ideas or furniture?

So, are you painting over the mustard yellow? Are you keeping the red in the kitchen and teal in the hall?

The teal I think you're talking about is green.. That's the dining room and I'm turning it into a dark purple. I want the mustard to be neutral to tie the bolder colors in. But I want help on how to make the living space cozy.

I'm glad you're not afraid of color! I think I'd put a sofa on the window wall (maybe with a sofa table behind) and float two chairs facing the sofa with a coffee table. I'm assuming a tv will be on the big blank wall. A couple of benches on the kitchen wall (to pull up to the coffee table for extra seating). A console table with a lamp an nice above above on the wall heading to the hallway. Here is a sample arrangement (sort of). I'd do quality neutral furniture and add big pops of color with an area rug and accent chairs and accessories. Have fun!
