“Strongly hued colors, like exotic chinoiserie red, give homes a sense of impactful design,” designer Scot Meacham Wood says. And this is proven by the book shelves in this living room, designed by Marshall Watson.

To open up floor space in his New York City living room, designer David Kaihoi built a corner banquette, with hidden storage beneath the seats. “Everything has to have more than one purpose,” he says. The walls are painted in Purple Haze by Benjamin Moore to distract from the small size.

Located in an iconic Manhattan apartment building, Sarah Bengur’s studio has a personality all of its own. The warm coral walls, painted Colorhouse Clay .07, set off the neutral and colorful decor brilliantly.

The custom yellow paint job in this New Jersey living room is warm and offset by blue, coral, and ocher accents. “You’ve really got to sell your client on a yellow-lacquered living room,” designer Michael Maher says.

A new house on Alabama’s Lake Martin takes on the look of an old cabin with soft, washed-out colors and ebony wood walls. Designer Susan Ferrier chose a chandelier by Phillips Metal Works to make a lofty living room feel more intimate.

Philadelphia-based interior designer Mona Ross Berman used a baby-blue shade that extends to the flooring with a blue- and green-patterned carpet in this cozy living space. Grass-green elements are added to the soothing color palette with accent pieces: an upholstered ottoman, X-bench and cushions.

Hot pink may be associated with girly-girl style, but the color can also be used to brighten a neutral space. In this seating area by Abbe Fenimore, a cream sofa becomes the perfect backdrop for various shades of the juicy color.

Meanwhile, green textiles on the side chair complement the bright hue. The painting in the seating area, with its brown, green and peachy tones, ties the whole room together. Image courtesy Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25

Designer Suellen Gregory gave this Virginia townhouse a feminine update by painting the center parlor a custom high-gloss pink from Fine Paints of Europe. The patterned chairs add even more playfulness to the space.

Mixing and matching similar shades is an unexpected way to create a room’s color palette. Shades of burnt orange and citrus are layered together in this room for a lively mix. Image courtesy Hilari Younger of Ufunkshen

To bring a feeling of nature into a New York living room, designer Fawn Galli used a custom minty green: “I don’t think a color should be too saturated or strong on a wall.”

Go for glamour with a regal shade of purple. Hilari Younger pairs purple with black and white to create a room that has an Old Hollywood feel. A cool gray wall adds the final sophisticated touch to this seating area.

Designer Kristin Kong hid a door to the basement behind millwork painted in Sherwin-Williams Black Fox in her home near Atlanta. The ­trick “makes the room look less choppy,” she says, since the dark color helps everything blend together.

When designer Justine Cushing moved into her New York apartment in 1970, she had the living room walls painted a custom orange — a color she has never considered changing. It’s a dynamic backdrop for artworks by her grandfather, Howard Gardiner Cushing, and a red lacquer chinoiserie desk that is a family heirloom.

The walls are painted a subtle shade of blue, Benjamin Moore’s Lookout Point, in a New York living room designed by Christopher Maya.

Just because a rental might be short-term, doesn’t mean it has to lack style. In her historic Charleston rental, stylist Jill Sharp Weeks painted the entire interior a sophisticated gray that felt period-appropriate — Sherwin-Williams Pussywillow, to be exact.

The classic black-and-white color palette is given a refreshing twist when blue is added to the mix. Designer Abbe Fenimore painted the walls a crisp blue to present black-and-white furnishings in a bold new way.

Mixing navy blue and brown may seem dark for a living room, but the color palette works beautifully in this cozy seating area. Designer Lindsey Coral Harper covered the wall in a lacquered navy blue, and added bits of brown with wooden frames on the side chairs and art.

Designer Sam Allen transformed the main room in his Connecticut apartment by painting it in Benjamin Moore’s Split Pea. “I love green and purple together,” he says. “It’s very Palm Beach.”

Designer Sara Story lacquered the walls in a custom ocean blue color in the family room of this pre-war New York City apartment. The shiny walls help bounce light across the space, giving a bright and open feel.

To warm up the new Sheetrock interior in a Palm Beach house, the expansive living room is glazed a “juicy cantaloupe color that makes everyone smile,” designer Ashley Sharpe says. Even the coffered ceiling subtly picks up the tropical punch.

Interior designer Abbe Fenimore plays with a turquoise, neon yellow and gray color palette in this cheerful living room. A soft blue modular sofa shines with electric neon pillows atop it. A slate-gray wall is the perfect backdrop to this living area’s bright shades.

In a colorful Park Avenue apartment by Mark D. Sikes, walls in Benjamin Moore’s Misty Lilac help ground the lively patterns used throughout. In a way, the soft purple shade almost acts like a neutral.

Spice up a white room with golden hues, a rich peacock blue and warm gray tones. Emily Henderson has turned this living room’s reading nook into an inviting space with splashes of color that take the space from boring and basic to bold and beautiful.

In a Manhattan apartment designed for a couple in the fashion world, designer Miles Redd lacquered walls in Farrow & Ball’s Hague Blue, “a great way to do a moody color because of the way it reflects light. It doesn’t look dark so much as rich.”

Mariah O’Brien filled this living room with a mix of strong, warm hues to create a stunning color palette. Yellow, red and orange details pop off the brown shelving units. A turquoise-blue vase brightens the coffee table, and a hot-pink swan chair works like an exclamation point.

In a North Carolina house designed by Lindsey Coral Harper, the celestial airiness of walls lacquered in Benjamin Moore’s Antiguan Sky is grounded by a pair of Addison corner chairs from O. Henry House upholstered in Neptune-blue velvet — and covered in a Kravet fabric.

Black and navy blue may be on the dark end of the color spectrum, but they can work together to create a modern living space. In this living room designed by HGTV Design Star finalist Hilari Younger, beige, brown and white elements lighten the dark color palette.

In this oceanfront Palm Beach house, designer Allison Paladino glazed the living room walls bright green to capture the light and painted the woodwork white to calm it down. “The bright green in the sunroom is gutsy, but the room is actually quite relaxing because I restricted the palette to green and white to create calm,” she says. “If I’d added another color the room would be jarring.”

Lindsey Coral Harper designed this daring living room study using berry delicious shades like raspberry, blueberry and mint green. In a room with bold blocks of color on the walls or built-ins, look at bringing in calming tones through furnishings.
