    Leon Tuberman, HubPages Author HOME Using Color Schemes to Set the Mood for Your Living Room See all 3 photos Many people have no idea to what extent the colors you they in their living room affects mood. Color is responsible for giving a room a cool or warm tone, for making it look rich, airy or elegant. Textures and pattern play a large role as well, but every item you place in your living room adds color, so you want to make sure you are setting the tone you desire for the room. In this article, you will learn how to incorporate color in your living room to achieve the desired effect. Yellow and Red Right now, you may be thinking these colors are “loud” or too bright, but quite the opposite is true. When you incorporate soft yellow tones with warm reds, you invoke the countryside of Southern France. Infuse a bit of bright green or moss green then add sunflowers, mustard toned ceramic pots, and floral prints for a look that is fresh, inviting and relaxing. White and Butter Yellow Strike a Paris Appeal Butter yellow walls and white furnishings offer a gently worn, French-inspired appeal. Painted furniture, white upholstery and aged pastels offer a romantic, warm atmosphere that is truly inviting. Rugs and draperies should be adorned with small splashes of pale blue and green, while faint touches of red outline throw pillows. Vintage fabrics really add an authentic flair to the room! See all 3 photos Go Sophisticated with Dusty Chocolate and Lime Love a sophisticated, modern look? Today, brown is not at all like the dull earth browns from decades ago rather it is a softer, muted chocolate brown that adds a richness and warmth to the room. Splashes of lime add vibrant color and perk up the atmosphere. Lime green ottomans and an elegantly painted canvas splashed with a touch of lime offer a lively, fun look. Oatmeal hued walls and throws, pillows and other accents with a nubby texture complete the look of the room. Blue, Tan and White – Oh So Relaxing Want your living room to have a relaxed and inviting “I'm on vacation” appeal? Incorporate pale blue, sand and white for a look that brings the ocean to mind. A pale blue rug, the color of robin's eggs, tops a wood floor; woven or rattan furnishings enhance the island appeal. White accent tables have a worn look, while white sheers on the windows add to the airy feel of the room. Include throw pillows and other accents that blend all three colors for a dash of excitement.
