We spend a lot of time in our living rooms. Some are formal spaces in which to receive guests and host gatherings, others are casual hangouts for the whole family. However you choose to use your main living space, the decor scheme should be both welcoming and engaging. Neutral design schemes have their place, but how about creating something a little more memorable? We’ve put together a collection of 40 two-color combinations for your living room that are sure to brighten and enrich your home. We’ll look at why these hues complement one another and how best to apply them to your interior for maximum impact.
