When designing your living room, it’s important to carefully consider the color of your walls — as the right paint hue can completely change the look and feel of a room. Warm tones, like creamy beige, chocolate browns, rusty reds or desert-inspired hues, bring energy into a space and instantly make it feel more cozy. Cool tones, like popular crisp whites, classic gray, soothing greens and fresh blues, evoke feelings of calm and help small spaces feel larger. No matter what mood you’re trying to create, we’ve rounded up the best living room colors — including links to our favorite shades from Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore and Clare.
