The modern living room in contemporary homes serves as the nerve center of most activities of the family. This is the area of the home where the family gathers for relaxation, or where visitors are welcomed and entertained, and where we hang out with relatives, neighbors or friends who are visiting from somewhere else. This is also where we enjoy our favorite music, movies or television shows. If we think about it, in most homes today the living room would probably be considered as the actual dining area instead of the dining room as dinners are often eaten in front of the TV anyway.
In addition to the more easily identifiable pastel colors, there are also many off-white shades that are actually "barely there" pastel shades. These off-white shades have just the slightest hint of color, which can provide attractive warm or cool undertones to the room. If you were to look at one of these paint colors in the can, you might actually mistake it for pure white. However, after it's been applied to the living room walls, the slight color undertones will add the perfect decorator touch. These "barely there" pastel-tinted white shades can work well in contemporary styled living rooms. For example, a cool white shade with subtle blue or green undertones can provide just enough color to perfectly accentuate the other colors used in the room. These colors are especially effective when used to reflect light, due to the fact that they are almost white. As such, they can be used to make a small living room seem more expansive. They are also a great choice if you prefer a minimalist decorating style.
If you would like to indulge in the more dramatic, consider a strong play of colors for your contemporary living room furniture. Consider a blue and white contrast combination. Begin with heavy blue drapes on either side of your windows with a white billowy fabric in the center. Keep your furnishings to the same color scheme, from the upholstery on two square-cut armchairs to your cushions and the carpet, but do not let it become monotonous. Do away with the traditional sofa. Add accessories accentuating the color combination by way of candle arrangements on occasional tables and some tastefully selected pottery.
