Modern and Versatile Paint Trends

Color Tips, Inspiration

Picking the perfect paint color for your living room means selecting a color that is adaptable, timeless, and displays your style and personality. Living rooms are often the heart of the home; they tend to connect the house to multiple rooms. While there are many variations of colors to choose from, picking a versatile color is always a great decision because it gives you more flexibility in selecting colors for the connecting rooms. ​​Try applying neutrals and calm grounding tones in your living room for a modern, versatile look. Here are some tips on playing with neutral tones in your living room.

Try A Warm Neutral

Shades of neutral white, beige, and ivory are timeless colors that seamlessly connect your more dramatic shades in adjoining rooms. Neutral colors allow for easy changes in your living room design, like tossing in your favorite accent pieces and changing art and decor as frequently as you like without worrying about the colors clashing. Show off your favorite fabrics and textures, and colors by going bold with furniture and accent decor.

Use a versatile collection of warm neutrals. You’ll love the softness they bring to both formal and casual rooms.
We recommend trying Sherwin-Williams’ Accessible Beige and Shoji White. These colors soften your space and make it look timeless but still cozy. Warm neutrals are much softer and more forgiving than their cool-tone neutral counterparts.

Calming Gray

If you are a homeowner looking for a rich color that doesn’t overwhelm your living room area, gray neutral is a perfect choice. Grays with a stronger undertone of color, such as blue or green, create a nice balance for those who want a bit more individuality in their design choices.

Our favorite, Comfort Gray by Sherwin-Williams, is a soothing color with the softest touch of green. Comfort Gray is a perfect way to introduce bolder colors into your home without feeling too overwhelming. You can accent your room with whites, blues, and green fabrics paired with warm wood and gold accents, or try woven textiles with dark wood flooring, creamy accent pieces, and lots of greenery.

Ours was a particularly hard job, 1000 sf great room with 20' ceiling, lots of trim, doors, windows, etc; and lots of issues, like sheetrock cracks, backed out nail heads, etc. The Pro1 crew tackled the job like champs, keeping the mess to minimum, using the best paint products, making great sheetrock repairs, and applying the paint in crisp lines... with little to no slosh over. We are very pleased with the final job and the Pro1 personnel, especially Jamie, the job manager, and his crews. All the Pro1 staff (beginning/end) acted in a professional and courteous manor. We would be pleased recommend Pro1 to more

Had my popcorn removed. The team was promptly on time everyday. They were very respectful to my 77 year old mother which was appreciated. The finished job on the ceilings look like they were smooth finished when built. Mess was a minimum and they cleaned up daily. I would absolutely recommend this team for your project. I will use them for... interior painting more

We were able to schedule the work the same week I called. The team did a wonderful job of correcting a very rough concrete finish. They have a good color selection for the finish they applied to our sunroom and patio floors. The men performed the work in a very timely manner, and the result is beautiful. We highly recommend Pro 1 Painters for a... guaranteed beautiful floor finish that will hold up for many years and be comfortable more

I can’t say enough good things about this business. They are professional, on time, and reasonably priced. They respect your property and your time. They show up when they say they will and work continuously until the job is done. I would give them 10 stars if it was possible. Great job.
