If you are blessed with a larger living room, you can be more adventurous with colour: try experimenting with a darker decorating palette, add a striking feature wall or get creative with bold paint colours.
When it comes to living room decor, there isn’t a look more dynamic than an industrial setting. This high contrast style can be achieved with or without the exposed ceilings or naked pipes. With a bit of imagination, you can take any living space and render it industrial with the right accent furniture.
Once you've chosen your main room colour, pick out one main accent and another one or two accent shades to use in smaller doses. This gives you the opportunity to add warmth to a neutral scheme, cool down a bright scheme, link together two ends of a long or open-plan space, and perhaps even to tie your living room colours with those of your hallway for whole-house cohesion.
As a general rule of thumb, pastels and pale colours are better suited to a small living room, whereas bolder and brighter colours can be used much more freely in a larger space. The other pivotal factor is determining how much sunlight enters the space. Think about testing a colour on a small, discreet area and see how it changes throughout the day.
