Because of its presence in nature, warm shades like honey, coffee and rust are often associated with the life-sustaining, nurturing qualities of the earth itself.
These kinds of neutral colors are often recommended by professional decorators for their timeless appearance of quality.

The following shades will bring calm and be most relaxing in (or for) your living room:
Almond cream (evokes the warmth and calm of sandy beaches)
Earthy red (this provides a dose of energy without the “hyper” feel of regular red)
Taupe (brings a soothing timelessness)
Leaf green (tied to renewal, nature and is the color of harmony)
Mediterranean blue (relaxes the brain’s impulses; the color of the sea and sky)

In contrast to neutral walls, bright red accents (a rug, lamp, throw pillows, mantelpiece, artwork, etc.) will totally stand out. Combined, the colors lift the spirit and make the room warm and inviting.

When warm tones like beige are accented with cool white, the effect is a balance called homeostasis (maintaining an internal equilibrium). This color scheme leaves you in a very positive mind-set.

Beige with just a hint of yellow or pink on the walls is a perfect way to create a calming background for other natural colors.

Sunny yellow, grass green, and sky blue accents really “pop” against beige walls and provide cherry bright spots.

Buttery leather and natural fibers (wool, cotton and linens) feel wonderful against the skin, so furniture covered with these materials are naturally more inviting to sit on than nylon or polyester (which are man-made).

Paneled walls can surround a room with warmth, but if they’re too dark they can make the room seem closed in.
The solution is to paint the paneled walls a light color.

Soft lighting creates a mellow mood.

Choose a chandelier, some table lamps, ceiling lights, and candles-these work on several levels and can be dimmed.

You can place a casual design (like a pin-dot armchair or lounge chair) with a sophisticated one (like a floral pattern rug). You’ll create what decorators call asymmetrical balance-an effect that’s very eye-pleasing.
Using casual fabrics for formal, upholstered pieces adds casual charm (an old bedspread can be re-used as a window treatment).

The abundance of flowers in the living room-whether they’re real or in the furniture and rugs-makes it feel warm and inviting. But flowers and floral prints aren’t the only elements that produce this  effect. Green plants and botanical artwork can have the same soothing influence.
