Give your basement a wonderful Mediterranean look and feel by adding complementary splashes of color. We love this color palette that combines the soft powdery blue of the sofa with bright pinks and yellows of the pillows.

The brown shades of the walls and the ceiling add to this quirky setup, beautifully matching the yellow table covering and patterned red carpet.

Classic White Monochrome

This classic white monochrome basement looks elegant and welcoming. The carpeted floor, lined walls, white wooden furniture, and the smooth, comfy sofa all work together to add texture to the room.

With subtle pops of color from the plants, clock, pillows, and fireplace, the room succeeds in using its whites without appearing drab or plain, giving way to a heavenly kind of coziness.

Warm Lilac

This lovely basement room uses lilac colors to appear both soothing as well as stylish. When combined with soft lilac sofas, soft cream flooring and ceilings, and a bit of both in the sofa chairs and pillows, this room calls out to us to inhabit.

We also simply love how the warm glow of light brightens up the room.

Quintessential Blue and Brown

The dark chocolatey brown furniture of this room works perfectly against that single blue wall. The smooth carpet and off-white walls and ceilings add to the flawless color combinations that this room uses so well.

The backlit picture frames on the blue wall add a great personalized touch to this basement room. It truly seems like a great place to lounge in.

Sleek and Functional Tones

These color tones work effectively together to create this comfortable and inviting space. The greyish-brown wall that mounts an entertainment unit makes for an excellent companion to the cream and white walls and furniture of the rest of the room.

The wooden table, the lit-up glass showcase, and what seems like a pool table at the corner add lots of fun and charm to the room.
