If you are wondering as what are the trendy living room paint color schemes of the modern era, I would suggest you to check the living room decorations done by the pro designers. These designers are putting nice hues into practical projects in order to prove that not even a single hue (even black) is the oddest one if it is used wisely by doing a nice blending. By blending I mean mixing two colors together in such a way that the effect of the individual color or hue is balanced off.
If you are planning to use black color for creating a living room paint color schemes for your new home, you need to do your homeowner. First you need to learn which colors would blend nicely with the black. I guess white paint color is not the only one that you can do, there are tens of other shades, how about adding some rustic gold with the black to create a unique living room paint color combo. The idea would work if you pick the dullest and most shine free gold metallic color.
When you make your living room paint color combo you should try not to go for the glossy paint colors, they can definitely suck on the sleekness of the interior due to their outrageous shiny surface. The light when reflects through the shinny surface of the paint, it makes the decor more awkward than it already is in real. So try to opt for opt matte or natural paint colors for the walls which are free of shine.
