Spring is a wonderful time to paint your living room walls. Winter is over, the early nights are coming to a close, and everyone is looking forward to the warmer weather of spring. It’s then that thoughts turn to house renovation projects and painting the living room a new color is often one of them.

Not only is a lighter color more cheerful, it can also make your living room look bigger and more inviting. For the best new living room paint colors, why not try one of these? They’re light, pretty and not too expensive and they’ll warm up any spring living room.
