The living room is one of the rooms most used in any house, condo or apartment. Just like the kitchen it is where everyone comes together, to unwind from a busy day, relax with a good book or watch T.V. and just hang out with family or friends. If guests come to visit or the neighbors drop in the living room is the hub of every home.
Painting the living room in a popular paint colour that is either trending or just feels right for your space is a good choice. Remember that trending paint colours change often. So what may be trending this year, may not be next year. But that’s OK because if you stick to mostly neutral paint colours in either dark or light hues you’ll always be trending.
The following are just a few samples of some of the popular paint colours trending in Ottawa area homes for the past 2 years running, and guaranteed they’ll still look modern 5 years from now.

It all depends on the look your wanting to achieve, and the undertone you are wanting to match your furnishings and accessories with.

It blends perfectly with some of the dark brown furniture, lamps and other accessories.
