My living room is rather long (6-7meters) I want to add colour but don't know what to do. Where you see the dinning table is where I will be putting my tv, the dinning table will longer be there after that. My leather couches are plain so as far as I know I need colour and texture, the problem here is what colour. I recently moved to this house which is much bigger than my last one. I know that I don't want chocolate or red because I've had these in the past and I'm kinda over it now if you know what I mean. I'm open to suggestions, please shine some light on me.
I want a modern look.

I find this room inspiring.



A lovely, dark, peacock-like teal would be a nice complement to the taupe.

Get an appropriately sized rug that you love. Choose color-filled window coverings, pillows, and art based on the colors that you have in your awesome rug. Obviously something with pattern or at least texture would be best.

Be sure to include side tables and table and floor lamps to round out the lighting scheme. Depending on what lamps you choose, they can possibly contribute color too.

Well, you'll need to move the chair so it doesn't block the tv, I would suggest bring the love seat forward and slightly to the left, and putting the chair to the right of the love seat at an angle. An area rug, tables and lamp: [houzz=Sterling Jardin Blue Floral Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug]
[houzz=Keaton Coffee Table]
[houzz=Echo End Table - End Tables - Living Spaces - Room & Board]
[houzz=Possini Euro Design Asymmetry Table Lamp]

Also some curtain panels: [houzz=Marquee Shimmering Faux Silk Pinch Pleat Drape]

To bring some "life" into the room, how about a beautiful potted palm?

Thank you! Something I can work off with now. Yes off course the chair is going to be moved out of the way once the tv is set lol :P. i am thinking about painitng a wall though, at the moment my walls are a very light grey colour and I'm thinking of painting the tv wall a teal colour? Or is that too much? Or a metallic silver? I made a colour palette just wondering what your thoughts might be on it.

I'm guessing your tv is black when turned off, like most of them are? Before you chose your accent wall, try to picture in your mind how the black tv will stand out against that color.

My tv is black yes, but my husband is keen on buying a new one for the living room and he's got his eyes set on those new smart tvs, most come in chrome look or silver, so if he does get that tv I'm thinking maybe a bald colour otherwise maybe the metallic silver with my black tv? I'm trying to imagine it and those ideas are what's popping up. I could be wrong.
