The color of a room is very important. We all know that colors have the ability to make a room appear larger or smaller, but they also have the ability to effect our moods. For that reason, it’s always a good idea to go with calming colors, especially in a space where people will be spending a lot of time. After all, nobody wants to feel depressed or stressed every time they want into a room, and calming colors can definitely help alleviate that problem. Some of the colors that are said to have a calming effect are lavender, light yellow, light blue, brown, and green. These colors are also known to create the perception of more space, so when it comes to your living room, using one of these options can definitely be a win/win situation.
