Small Living Room / September 9, 2019 / Raison Baudin
If a homeowner has a cabinet in a neutral colored livingroom but it’s placed next to an overstuffed chair with a reddish orange upholstery, he or she might want to paint the cabinet a pale, flat olive-brown, including the wooden knobs and drawer pulls. To allow the grain of the wood to be seen, there should only be one coat of paint over the wood. Another cabinet with a rustic dark wood countertop in a cheerful livingroom with lime green walls might be painted an interesting lavender color to echo the linen that covers an occasional table on the other side of the room or the print of lilacs on an upholstered wingchair.
Room Furniture Tonality: Try using earthly tones for your furniture elements. Color schemes are a matter of personal style but do guide yourself with expert opinion. Beige or earthly tones are generally easier to match than primary ones. Use toned down hues so in the future you can. In addition, more toned down hues could resist better the test of time. Be aware, sunlight can affect in the long run the color of your furniture.
