We don’t know if it’s the warmer weather or the sight of tiny blooming flowers everywhere, but spring always makes us a little giddy. It’s the time to shed our heavy layers, clear out our winter wardrobe and start refreshing our home style as well. This year, we can’t think of a better way to do that than by incorporating some of the fresh new colors from Pantone’s spring color report. We’ve already spruced up our offices and added some much-needed color into our bedrooms, but what spring revamp would be complete without turning our design eye to the living room? Below, you’ll find 18 Pantone-approved living rooms that will look amazing in any home.


1. Tangerine Accents: A bold color like tangerine is great for small accents like pillowcases and side tables. They’ll add the perfect pop to a mostly neutral living space. (via Better Homes & Gardens)

2. Bright Ceiling: If you’re not afraid of color, why not try a bright orange ceiling to complement a room full of equally bright colors and patterns? (via Domino)

Lucite Green

3. Side Table: If there’s one thing we all need more of it’s storage space, and this pretty pastel side table will fulfill all your organizational needs. (via Refresh)


4. Dramatic Drapes: Dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows deserve statement-making drapes to bring all the attention to that gorgeous view. (via Domino)

Lavender Herb

5. Patterned Pillows: Imagine inviting friends over for a book club discussion in your living room with these fun, lavender-patterned pillows stacked on the couch. They’re so eye-catching that they might just take the attention away from the book you’re reading. (via Design Sponge)

6. Lavender Carpet: Bring a pastel color into your living room in a bold way with an oversized rug like this beauty. (via Dust Jacket Attic)


7. Custard Sofas: Identical long yellow sofas in your living room mean that you can stretch out and relax after a long day without taking up the only seats in the room. (via Domino)

Classic Blue

8. Paisley Chair: Create a cozy reading nook with a plush blue paisley armchair like this one. Be sure to position it right next to your favorite paperbacks and a gilded reading lamp for the ultimate relaxation station. (via Domaine Home)

Strawberry Ice

9. Mini Stools: A tiny space can still hold all your friends and family if you add these pretty-in-pink stools for extra seating. (via Style Me Pretty)

10. Fireplace Backsplash: An unexpected pop of pink on a backsplash will look great with a simple black and white fireplace. Bonus points if you stencil on a cool pattern or find a pretty pink decal for the space. (via Style Me Pretty)

11. Light Flush: The faintest flush of pale pink in a sun-filled living space will make this your favorite room in the house. (via Style Me Pretty)

Dusk Blue

12. Blue Floors: Rather than wood floors or wall-to-wall carpeting, a smooth slate floor in dusk blue is a great way to unify a shared living and dining space. (via Home Adore)


13. Round Storage Stools: Everyone needs more living room seating, right? Entertain in style with some rich-hued marsala stools that could also function as a storage space. (via The Everygirl)

14. Marsala Textiles: Printed pillows and a large rug in varying shades of marsala look gorgeous in a room painted bright, bright white. (via Decor8)


15. Leather Ottoman: A living room that doubles as a family room needs a little sophistication too. We’re thinking this round leather ottoman would be the perfect addition to any space. (via Domaine Home)


16. Woodbine Chairs: When you’re binge watching every episode of Friends on Netflix, you’ll need a plush comfortable chair to do it in. These bad boys look like just the thing. (via Coco Kelley)

17. Nature Background: Your favorite CDs, books and back issues of Vogue deserve more than just a boring wood bookcase. Make that area more interesting with some nature-inspired wallpaper. (via Domino)


18. Luxe Velvet: A green velvet couch atop a bold checkered floor will have you feeling like you’re lounging in a living room pulled straight out of Architectural Digest. Just don’t forget to add lots of plants for a finished look. (via Fresh Ideen)
