If your living room has furniture in neutral shades like black, beige or brown, you can add bold color accents with some stylish pillows. A white living room décor can get a marine vibe, if you add navy striped pillows or simple navy blue pillows. These are just two examples, but the possibilities are endless when it comes to changing the décor and adding color accents with pillows. Also, the sofa will definitely be more comfortable and it will become your favorite spot in the house for relaxation.

You do not have to paint everything, you can choose between your bookshelves, storing cabinets or even your desk. Choose a color that creates contrast in order to create the best color accent possible. Choosing two complimentary colors can be an option for those who want to experiment more with their design skills.

You can integrate your window frames in the living room design if you paint them in colors that can be found in other décor elements. For example, a white living room will look amazing with navy blue window frames and the striped navy pillows we talked about before.

If you don’t want to match the color of the window frames with other decorative objects, you can opt for colors that go well with your favorite curtains or window arrangements.
