No matter how light or dark or rich colors are, about half of them are warm and the other half are cool. Youll be able to tell pretty easily which category each color falls into, but dont get distracted from the way it will make the room feel by how pretty they are. Cool colors will give your living room a more impersonal, peaceful feel, while warm ones create an atmosphere of warmth, hospitality and excitement. Cool colors often coordinate with blue, and include pure white, black, gray, blue, all shades of purple, pink, and pastels. Warm colors have a closer relationship with gold, such as cream, brown, golden yellows, orange, orangey reds, and most greens.

Before you can brighten your interiors, you will need to discover what factors are creating the dark feeling.

Geometric patterns never go out of style! If you want to add a splash of color to the living room, a geometric pattern is the best way to do it. Either choose a wall for the pattern or just a part of the wall and create a perfect conversation piece. You do not have to stick to simple lines. You can make a bold statement with geometric patterns. Choose a dark color with a subdued color to make a subtle but strong statement. On the other hand, you can go all out with bright colors for a geometric pattern to make it look modern and quirky.
Painting the floor is the simplest way of giving a make-over to the living room.
