Combine colors, colorful from the ground
Combining colors does not mean grouping and that they necessarily combine. There are occasions as we will see in the gallery of some colors that only need a small touch. I mean cushions , vases among other accessories of your choice. Always adapted to the chromatic range in question. This is an excellent variant to contrast. It can also be applied to furniture. The choice of white should not be pure, it should be oriented towards a specific tonality.
Environment with natural light
It would be an excellent resource to neutralize shades too intense as yellow. When the environment is combined, it becomes elegant and cheerful. An important detail is also the style that you select for your living room. This will also determine the color in many cases.

Although we are very clear about everything related to the use of color in the living room there are other necessary details to make it look good.
