Living Room Designs for 2018: Color Trends
It appears that the color trend will be making a subtle comeback in 2018. Color was notably absent in the market this year after more neutral shades were placed in the spotlight. Consumers have already started purchasing furniture pieces with bright and bold color palettes. Want to try doing this for your home? Let your imagination run wild with neon green tables, mustard yellow armchairs, and neon lamp shades. The key is to draw attention to the piece, which means you should be more careful so as not to overdo it. Take the example above, two mint green recliners adorn the living room to add a subtle yet modern touch.
Think of a picturesque location that you’ve been wanting to visit . . . and recreate this in your living room! Be sure to incorporate the beautiful and natural colors of the environment. For example, if your destination of choice is the lavender fields in Luberon, France, then try contrasting a bright lavender couch to a burnt orange wall to mimic the fields during a sunset.
Pastel shades are also becoming a huge part of the home trends for 2018! It will surely be refreshing to see more pops of colors compared to the overflow of gray hues this year.

Alternatively, large sofas and tables make convenient dividers when you want to create dimension in the room.
