Within minutes of waking into your living space your guests mentally analyze how large the room is, the décor and style and the color scheme your area.
If lighter more cream colored shades are your fancy, then painting your walls an off white or beige might be your best bet. Also, if your furniture is lighter in color then it is important for your walls and floors to follow in the same footsteps. On top of making your room brighter, lighter colors of paint will make your space appear larger.

 If you have patterned upholstery, or a large piece of artwork, choose some colors you like from the pattern and incorporate it into your living space. If rich and deep colors are what you want to showcase, then maroon, forest green or a dark beige color would do the job. Also, deep shades and lighter colored furniture will create a clash that will add a stylish yet elegant contrast. Adding color and style to your space is really dependant upon your taste.
