There are many decorative ideas that we can find for our living room, and among them we have to mention, of course, the fact of applying different colors that are trend and that even combined can give us a spectacular result to our living room. Therefore, we talk about the paintings for living room: Modern ideas for 2020.
There are many ideas that we can find when choosing a good color or paint for our living room and although it always seems to impose ideas that do not go out of style such as the use of white, so that everything looks more spacious and illuminated, the truth is that today we can opt for the color that we like, without taking into account the space as before.
The latest painting trends for the living room 2020
The key is to know how to combine tones and that these are as I said, much more varied than in previous years.
In this way, we can opt for the neutral tones, which are trend and that like white we will allow the sensation of amplitude to be greater. Or we can choose more sober or dark tones, that combined in a successful way will renew and improve the appearance of our room.
Let’s see now, those ideas that will surely convince you to make your living room look like never before and completely modern and renewed.
We can start then with a room that is gray, since this is the tone that seems to be imposed among the many novel proposals for decoration 2020.
In this way, the idea of having a room in a soft gray, combined with furniture and a sofa that can be of the same tone, or a similar one. You can also combine different shades of gray on the different walls. Or combine it with white as we see in the following example.
On the other hand, we have the option of choosing a room with walls in gray, something darker than the previous one, and how the idea of combining it with white is really spectacular.
If in addition, we add some furniture in blue, resulting in the space looks very modern. The mixture of gray and white is especially ben in modern or minimalist rooms and has the advantage of combining with virtually all styles and colors.
I’ve already said that neutral tones are a trend this year, and among the many options to choose from, one of the coolest is the soft blue or sky blue.
In this way, if you have a room to decorate completely, just by painting it in this tone we can change its appearance completely. Of course, it is a color that will be very good if the space is large or if we choose to decorate it to the minimum.
If we continue to see the latest ideas of neutral paints for the living room, we must also mention, of course, beige, one of the colors that is why we are betting more on the decoration of living rooms.
In this way, our living room can be completely renovated, if we opt for a beige or “egg” color like the one above. Painting a single wall, while the ceiling can go white and the furniture will also be the same tone. What do you think of the example of the image?
If you are looking for a more intense color in your living room, the variety is also wide and among the many trends, perhaps the orange is the most current of all.
You have to be careful when painting the orange room since it is a very strong and strident color, which makes the space appear more flat and reduced. That’s why we recommend combining it with white, to dose its strength.
In this way, as in the above photo, we can choose to paint a living room wall with an intense orange, leaving the rest white. The idea is that the room is not reduced in space because of the use of that striking color and the result is without a doubt, spectacular.
Orange and beige are definitely colors, very similar to the ochre color, one of the most used tones currently in interior decoration. A tone that also combines very well with other shades such as neutral or white. You could say that orange is the riskiest option, while beige or ochre are the most conservative (although quite modern anyway).
Neutral tones, earth tones, and nude tones are imposed for spaces such as the bedroom, although we can also opt for them if we have to repaint the room.
You will achieve with this that your living room looks more elegant than ever, whether it is a decoration, modern or more eclectic. In addition, with walls in the mentioned tones, we will be able to combine it with furniture of more intense colors.
As we say, this painting is especially good in decoration rooms more urban style, or even with an eclectic and minimalist style.
Green is another of the trend colors in decoration for this 2020, so that your living room can be as modern as the one you see above, if you choose the idea of painting the walls with a fairly intense shade of green.
Although a large room is the best option, the truth is that what we have to know so that our room is well with the green on the walls, without looking smaller, ideally we paint those walls or wall near the window or balcony and that the furniture and sofa are also arranged in the direction of natural light that enters us.
Continuing with the intense colors we have to talk about the commitment to red. A color that is perhaps too striking but that has become very fashionable for living rooms that also have other colors such as gray, which we can choose both for furniture and for the sofa.
Yes, be careful with the shade of red we choose, because we could end up getting tired of it soon, since it is a very powerful color.
And a brown room? Many paint brands every year launch new shades of this color that ultimately can be imposed for the walls of our living room. Of course, the best option is to combine the intense brown on the walls with furniture that is lighter or neutral tones.
Until recently the brown color was totally discarded if it was about paintings for the living room. However, as you can see the modern decoration does not reject any color
Sometimes we believe that for a living room to be modern and attractive it must be painted in some original color. However, white is still one of the great references. Why not paint our white room?
Of course, white offers a large number of advantages. First, stick with almost everything. The living room furniture may not stick or do not look good with other colors, but they will do it with white. others, it is a color that transmits, peace, purity and tranquility. To make matters worse, painting the white room is the best solution if we have a dark room or that does not get the sunlight.
Therefore, from here we defend white paint for living rooms as an option to be taken into account, as current as it has always been.
The good thing about white, in addition, is that it combines with everything. We have seen before combinations of white and blue paint that can give the room a very special touch. But we can also choose other more curious blue tones, such as the turquoise we see in the following image.
This turquoise color seems to add extra warmth to a cool color like blue, and that warmth is reflected in the room. If you like the touches a little special and exotic, turquoise could be a good choice for painting your living room.
We continue with the coldest colors, but they go slowly to warm. The purple or violet are colors that, increasingly, are becoming a trend in what refers living room painting.
Although it seems that no, the purple is a color that gives life and joy to the living room and that combines quite well with other colors. Of course, we must also take into account the type of furniture or decoration that we want for the living room since in some cases it would not be too good (for example, we did not see it in a rustic style room).
The only downside that we can put is that some shades of purple are quite dark and it is not advisable to use them in rooms that do not get the light too well.
There is always the idea that pink is the favourite color of girls, and in many cases it is true. However, within the decoration of living rooms has always opted for other types of paintings less “ñoñas” or children.
But, what if we tell you that you can paint the rose room without looking like a girl’s room or the room of My dear pony? You can use a shade of pink a little darker, and combine it with white in other walls of the room. In this case it is true that painting the entire room of this color may be a bit excessive.
In any case, do not discard the rose as a color for your living room and if you have doubts check out some photos on the internet and get some ideas and examples that you see.
The yellow is usually regarded as a strong and garish colored, instead of relaxing makes us nervous and alert. It is also a youthful color, cheerful and with march. Many people think that yellow is not a pleasant color to look at, especially to be surrounded by it in our living room. But we return to the same as in the previous example. If we combine in a wise way, it is a very usable color and, in fact, it could become our favorite for the living room.
The red is one of the most chosen for paint colors classroom because it is a warm and inviting color. However, it is also true that there are many types and shades of reds, each with its own characteristics.
For example sure that there are people who prefer a more discreet and dark red, pulling almost already garnet. This color is also one of the preferred ones at present for the decoration of living rooms. The best is the touch of elegance and satisfaction that it gives, without forgetting a point of warmth and sensuality.
There are innumerable options to paint our living room. The important thing in this case is to make the decision taking into account the furniture we have and the feeling we want to create in the room.
