1. Classic Beige Colors

Classic Beige Colors

Beige, tan, greys and other earth tones are some of the most popular colors for farmhouse interiors. While simple, this living room does well to use a beige that is lighter than both the carpet and wooden ceiling. This kind of design helps open up and brighten the living room to give it a welcoming feeling.

2. Alabaster White

Alabaster White

Alabaster White is one of the most-used paints for farmhouse interiors and for good reason. The bright paint looks great, and it has enough depth to keep your walls from being pure white. In addition to this, it goes great with dark-colored furniture and will help your decorations and photos stand out.

3. Fireplace Highlight

This earthy beige is the perfect choice for this living room. In front of it, the fireplace pops, making it the centerpiece of the room. The walls are also a great color choice for any style or color furniture you want in the room.

4. Dulled Seafoam

The calming effect of this seafoam green interior is stunning. Matching both the lounge bench and curtains gives the room a little bit of a monotone feel, while really letting the flooring stand out and give a warm feeling to the room.

5. Greige Theory

Grey, beige, and white are easy to match with other colors and work extremely well for farmhouse living rooms. While this room leads towards grey, the rest of the decorations really stand out against it. All of the natural light from the windows helps keep the room looking bright and open, toning down the slightly darker feel from the walls.

6. Dark and Light

The light shade of white on these walls perfectly balances out the darker flooring and design in this room. In addition to that, it also goes well with the open floorplan, helping to make the space feel much larger and more open.

7. High Ceilings

high ceilings

High, vaulted ceilings are a great way to help make a room feel more spacious. The light grey walls are a great choice here, keeping the room bright. A darker color could have contrasted the open feel from the high ceiling, but instead, this lighter one only enhances the room's natural openness.

8. Accent Wall

accent wall

One of the best ways to make accent walls stand out is to make them contrast from the rest of the room. Even with a darker color, this wood-paneled accent wall pops because it's more bright than the dull greige of the rest of the walls in the room. This is a good tool to use to help extend the space in your room and make it feel longer and more open.

9. Just Outside the Greige

blue-grey paint

The blue-grey paint used in this living room is a great choice if you don't want to use a typical beige, grey, or white. It's still rather neutral, working with most color schemes you would want to go with for your decor. With some natural light in the room, it also lightens up and stays away from ending up with walls that are too dark and claustrophobic.

10. Necessary Light

off-white walls

These off-white walls are almost a necessity in this room. With such a dark floor, ceiling, and accents, they keep the room from feeling small. It also reflects the natural light from the windows extremely well and gives the room a lived-in look you would expect from a farmhouse-style living room.

11. Mossy Oak

The earthy, mossy color of this green living room is perfect for highlighting the doorframes and furniture while also balancing out the dark flooring. Pairing it with light white furniture and dark wood decor adds a ton of contrasting colors to the room to keep your eyes moving. It breaks up the room really well while also giving it a nice calming feeling.

12. Grey Tones

The overall black and white theme of the room is paired really well with the light gray walls. With shades ranging from white to black, all of the greyscales really help to break up the room and make individual features stand out, like the doorways, wall hangers, and rug. The flat walls are also a great contrast to the patterned floor, helping the shifts in shades to pop.

13. Simple Earth Tone

While the walls themselves may seem dull, the slate-colored walls will not only go well with any color decor you choose but really help it stand out. The soft grey gives way to any brighter colors you want, just like the white cabinetry and light wood in this picture.

14. Centerpiece Mantle

Not only does the fireplace and mantle divide the room into two and give it a nice broken-up look, but it also stands out incredibly well against the darker grey of the walls. It's also still neutral enough that including darker furniture in the room doesn't make it feel any smaller, giving you plenty of leeway for choosing both wall and furniture decorations for the room.

15. Open-Air Living Room

Like a previous entry on this list, the light off-white walls of this living room help enhance the natural open feeling of the high ceiling. Using lighter colors for most of the decor also helps to enhance the space, giving it an open and breezy feeling. While it's a great contrast to the flooring and looks great in the natural light pouring in, it even makes the ceiling fan feel higher up than it actually is.

16. Thinking Outside the Paint

wood paneling

Wood paneling looks great in a farmhouse living room. While using worn wood can give the room a lived-in feeling, using sleeker wood can give it a more modern feel. Although this room may feel a little monotone, using wood paneling can help highlight and enhance the decor of your living room, or be the highlight itself.

17. Clay Home

Using off-white paint with a wrinkled pattern makes this room look to have clay walls. It's a great western style addition to the living room and is a rather agreeable color with any kind of color scheme. The green accents really stand out, as do the wall hangers and decorations.

18. Coated Wood

coated wood

Using the grey-white paint to coat the log walls of this cabin home enhances the farmhouse style of the room. The country vibe is definitely there while still maintaining the more graceful interior.
