It doesn’t really matter if you’re in a small apartment in a busy apartment block or in a big and wide house in the suburbs, the odds are the biggest room in your home is the living room. Being the biggest space in your home, it gives you more liberty to decorate. But before concerning yourself with furniture shopping, you should think of the most important decorative motif, the walls. Painting walls could be a rather dull task to do, but choosing a proper colour for your walls can impact the entire space and set the tone for the rest of decoration and art display. But, as the following images prove, there’s actually no wrong colour when it comes to the living room. So sit back and enjoy the following interior design ideas for your living room that CovetED Magazine chose for you.
