Sure neutral colored rooms are a safe versatile color choice when it comes to living rooms, but there is something to be said for a warm bright space to liven up your home. Orange, a warm mixture of red and yellow shades, is a vivid bold color choice that can elevate the look of your living room and give a vibrant burst of color to the overall color scheme of your home.
