Some of 2014's most popular paint colors for living room walls are shades of brown, gray and green. These hues pair well with furniture pieces in a variety of colors and patterns.
Green walls, in a soft shade like jade or pistachio, are ideal for living rooms that have turquoise, white or lime green furniture. Neutral colors like brown and tan are traditional choices for the living room, and they can make the space appear warm and inviting. If the living room features eye-catching patterned furniture, then cream-colored walls may be best, as the subtle color of the walls will make the furniture pieces stand out even more.
