Are you bored of your tired living room colors? Do you feel unrested or uninspired whenever you enter the room? This special space is not only the first room that your guests will typically enter, but it is also a sanctuary for you to unwind in at the end of your busy day.

Fall in love with your living room all over again! Check out these 8 unique paint color combinations and choose a look that’s right for your space:

Complementary Vibrance: Cornflower, Tangerine, and White – You might think that blue and orange, while complementary, can be a bit blinding, but these lighter shades are soft enough to make any space cheerful and bright! Use shades of white as your main color and sprinkle in these soft hues of orange and blue in your accessories, throws, and pillows.

Warm and Traditional: Chartreuse, Peachy Yellow, and Oatmeal – Is your style more traditional? Give it a fresh new update with this warm color scheme! Peachy yellow makes a fun and infallible alternative to boring beige, and chartreuse is the perfect shade of green to pepper in as accent pieces. Tie it all together with oatmeal-colored furnishings to create a warm and inviting space!

Modern Vibe: Sky Blue, Gunmetal Gray, and Soft White – Who says gray isn’t cool? Make your living room a modern space by painting the walls a cool gray. Intersperse plenty of blue to give it some life, and choose a soft white to give that extra bit of warmth to the space. Wood furnishings would go nicely with this color scheme as well!

Green Dream: Leafy Green, Cream, and Coal – If you love spending time outside, you can bring the outside in with this color scheme! Use cream as your wall paint and sprinkle in natural green shades in your accessories and furnishings. If you want to stay away from a heavy theme, try using patterns and prints in your curtains or smaller pieces of furniture! Hints of coal black will lend the space an air of sophistication.

Maritime Getaway: Crisp White, Pale Turquoise, and Coral – Is the beach more your scene? Bring the sand and surf to your living room for a daily getaway! A crisp white on the walls and in your larger furniture pieces brighten up the room while watery shades of turquoise glimmer in your rugs, vases, pillows, and lamps. Throw in hints of coral red in smaller furnishings to complete the look.

Fresh Countryside: Citrus Green, Wheat Beige, and Driftwood Brown – Pastel, citrusy greens do such a great job bringing warmth and playfulness into a space! Bring this same feeling into your living room by painting the walls and choosing some pivotal fabrics in this hue of green. Wood furnishings and rustic pieces help tie in the feel and make the space comfortable. Don’t forget to intersperse some clean some white to uplift the space!

The Bold and the Blue-tiful: Cerulean, Mustard, and Khaki – Who says a living room has to be nothing but pastel colors? We think it would be fun to take a risk with some bold color combinations! All you need to do is balance your bold color (in this case, cerulean) with neutrals, and you can pull off the look you want! Be daring and paint those walls with cerulean blue, and balance it all out with a khaki colored sofa and table. Sprinkle in mustard yellow accents to give your room even more contrast and vivacity!

Punchy Pinks: Fuchsia, Raspberry, and Warm Browns – Turn your living room into a pretty pink dream! Use plenty of warm neutrals like various shades of brown in your major furniture and light white on your walls to provide a neutral base. Next, use rich hues of pink, fuchsia, and raspberry in both solids and patterns throughout your room to tie it all together!
