Do you fancy new living room colors? Then you are certainly glad to know that we are dedicating some consecutive posts to the color trends of the 2018/2019 season. In addition to the usual overview the current trendy shades, we want to systematically give concrete examples. Now we start with the trend colors red and green and their use in the living room. You can also use this article as a way to revisit next season’s interior design trends.
Different shades of green as living room colors give a layered look here
Living room colors for layer look
As we already do in another article on our site, the layer look for the upcoming fall / winter season is very topical. Since the green easily combines with many other colors, it can be very helpful in this regard. In the green living room above this text, the room was zoned out using a large green curtain.
It corresponds to a designer lounger and the mural. These each show a very dark and a bright and eye-catching green shade. The red color plays an equally important role in this case. It was introduced through the small carpet and the throw pillows. However, red accessories are not just an extra layer in this case. Without them, the room would be relaxed, but a little dark. By the way, radiating warm accents in more elegant rooms is a trend in itself. Read more about it in the next lines …
The modern effect can be achieved by combining, among other things, red and green
Ethnic pattern in green and red
Living rooms with global ethnic appeal are another modern trend. To stay in tune with this, you can consider wall paints or textiles with geometric patterns. In the example below, this project was realized through curtains and throw pillows of this kind. Thanks to the positioning of a residential landscape in a saturated olive gourd in the middle of the room, one also achieved a layered look. The smooth transition from yellow to blue, which appears natural due to the mixed colors, has been particularly successful. Entnic patterns would also be wonderful to pair with red designs. First of all, it works quite naturally, because in different cultures they occur exactly in this form. But they also make sense, because they could make the effect of the bright red look “gentler”.
Global charisma always disappears as soon as geometrical patterns are applied …
The colors for the living room – green and red are just as perfect.
Play with light and shadow
Often there is talk of the mood of “a nocturnal forest” in designer articles on current trends. Of course, dominate in such a concept, the green nuances in their dark versions. In addition to the topic of darkness, which is clearly in the foreground, one likes to use enlightening aspects in the interior design. Mostly these are pop-ups in purple, red or other shades with a similar character. One would like to combine dark green surfaces with very light – in this case – white. This resulted in a particularly exciting light-shadow game.
The procedure was different in the following example with the predominantly red living room. There is a rather evening mood due to the darkening, the saturated red nuances and the black furniture. The white pictures provide “light in the night”.
Red is a bright color. Nonetheless, sometimes it can look rather gloomy like this.
Glamorous and nostalgic
Glamor elements and glamor are striking in the interior design of the following seasons. But there is one special feature, namely that you like to combine it with nostalgic looks. They are especially common in industrial and vintage furnished living rooms and other premises. In the next room shown warm golden accents were introduced with the help of side tables and a work chair in a modern style. Nostalgic, on the other hand, are the beautiful industrial luminaires. But the whole thing could be quite bizarre and inharmonious if you did not have the balancing green color in its different forms.
Below it follows a room with red accented floor design, where geo-metric triangular patterns can be seen. The shine is set here by their surface and also by noble-looking furniture in scene. The balance is in this case from the interaction of red and green.
Nostalgia and glamor go hand in hand this season
Red and green are some of the best background shades!
Newnordic and natural materials
As in many previous seasons, the Scandinavian trend remains current. But here is more from the Newnordic the speech. However, one could consider the explanation of this tendency as a summary of the previous ones. The Newnordic is unremarkable, but has subtle luxury aspects that give the whole thing a bit of warmth. In addition, one likes to combine different noble wood species there. So neutral and so spectacular is this style and it would be perfect for the living room. What would be the ideal background? We believe that this role can be wonderfully taken over by the modern green and some modern muted reds.
