Try a warm palette
A color scheme of mustard yellow, ruby red, hunter green, and burnt orange can give your living room or dining area a seasonal lift. These colors breathe new life to the space and perk up the mood. You can get a new throw and throw pillows that complement the color scheme. Add candles and flowers with warm colors to create a feeling of warmth. Candles exude warmth when grouped together. Light them for a gathering and put them off for a casual setting. If you’re into bold colors, try red accents as they have the ability to make a living room an inviting space. Get a red area rug and fill the room with color as you add a layer of warmth and comfort underfoot.
