You need to be careful in choosing colors for your living room because there is a great effect made by colors.
If you want to keep your living room simple but modern, using white as the main color to beautify its interior is a great idea. White interior design is perfect for you who want to have a bright room with a natural appearance. In order to remove its plain look, painting the walls black is recommended.
Black walls in white interior design can be an option as an accent wall. Why black? It is an awesome color that can open up your space, creating a larger feeling, making it airer, and creating an inviting feeling as well.
