I’d like advice to make my living room more enjoyable.
I find it to….say…cold.
I need it a bit more warm.
I have 1 large wall that is white. Here is a tv wall in the colors glossy white and dark wenge (like oak).
The flooring is wenge gray.
The smaller walls are aubergine (eggplant purple),

How can I get this room warmer. Change the small walls with a new color, or the white one with a color that matches aubergine?

thanks in advance

Personally, I like the aubergine so wpuldn’t go to the hassle of changing it.

Instead of painting the other walls, why not try using a small-scale pattern wallpaper that would work well with the aubergine paint? Alternatively, you could try adding more accessories such as cushions, candle holders and art work to brighten the room up and make it feel more cosy.

Let us know how you get on.

Sorry for the delay. I do want to keep the aubergine color, but I find the white walls not warm…so cool. Is there something that I can use instead of white, while keeping the aubergine, and what matches the tv-wall/cabinet.

I will suggest you light colors like green is the best. As it is a nature color and considered as a cool color. This is the color which will provide you a calm feeling that makes you comfortable.

The aubergine is beautiful & I think it would look great with a light gray colour?

I’m not sure it would be warmer though, but it might take the edge off the white.

I’d suggest a feature wall with a nice burnt orange. The colour is warm but not too overpowering – it also suggests that lovely point in the year when summer’s cooling off. Lovely, relaxing feeling.

I like the orange better as the gray, but how does it look on the large wall (tv and lowboard wall). Isn’t that too much,

I agree that the aubergine wall looks good, consider doing something with the wall where the TV is.
