It’s finally a new year. What better time to give your interior a facelift with some fresh paint? Wipe the old slate clean and allow a new coat of paint to breathe new life into one of your home’s central gathering places: the living room.
There’s a lot to consider when deciding which paint color to choose for your living room. For instance, are you planning to use your current furniture or purchase new? If using existing items, you’ll want to choose a paint color that complements or meshes well. You’ll want to avoid mixing opposite color palettes, like having a gray couch then painting your walls tan.
On the other hand, if you’re completely wiping your living room slate clean with new furniture and accent pieces, you have more options for paint colors. Just make sure that whatever comes second — purchasing new furniture or painting your living room walls — it complements what came first.
Now let’s talk colors. Here are some ideas based on what we predict will be the most popular living room paint colors of 2021:
2021 Paint Color Trends
This year, PPG Paints picked three colors on its 2021 paint palette, all of which portray a natural, serene look. These colors mesh well together and can bring a sense of peace to any space — something we all can use more of after the whirlwind of 2020.
The first color on the palette is Transcend (PPG1079-4). It’s a gorgeous shade of deep beige that will look stunning against contrasting accents like white trim or matte black lighting fixtures. PPG describes it as “midtone, shaded, brown sugar beige with a gingerbread undertone.” If you’re looking for elegance in your living room, this is the color for you.
The second color on the palette is Misty Aqua (PPG1147-3). Can you imagine this color paired with white or cream-colored trim, crown molding, or chair rail? Then pair it with a light-colored sofa and loveseat, and/or a white-washed coffee table and side table. Your living room will feel like an oceanside oasis. It’s the perfect look, since PPG describes this color as “a soft, muted, tropical turquoise aqua with an aquamarine undertone.”
The third color on the palette is Big Cypress (PPG1062-5). What a unique living room paint color! You’re sure to impress guests and set the stage for a one-of-a-kind gathering space with this on your walls. PPG describes it as “a saturated, shaded, ginger orange with a persimmon undertone.” It would look perfect with deep, mahogany furniture and accent pieces.

But if you want to kick it up a notch and go for something more dramatic, consider:
But if you can’t decide on just one living room paint color, choose two. Select a bolder color to use as an accent wall, then a more neutral color to use on the remaining walls. Use the accent wall to draw eyes and showcase your most prized furniture or accent pieces, like that heirloom piano or a custom-made bookshelf.
No matter which paint color you choose, the right painters will make the process of refreshing your living room seamless and stress-free. Turn to the experts for interior painting done right. You won’t regret it.
