So, the wall surfaces can be painted with olive paint and decorate the room with white furniture. Also, olive walls can be combined with a black floor covering and black furniture, diluting the interior with accessories of bright colors.

Because olive color alone obscures the room and visually makes it smaller, experienced designers recommend the living room entirely in olive tones only if the room is spacious enough and well lit.
Make the olive interior brighter and warmer if two basic colors complement the third, which will act as an accent.
For example, a living room in olive tones of a photo that can be seen in the catalog will be brighter if it is supplemented with yellow sofa pads or a beautiful yellow floor vase.
The living room, in which the olive walls and white furniture is diluted with elements of orange decor, will look original. This combination will make the living room atmosphere warm and positive.
Concerning the practicality of olive shades, it can be said that this is the most practical color scheme in which random crumbling crumbs or accidentally left small spot will be unnoticeable, if a dark olive shade is chosen, then the traces of dirt and dust will not even be visible against it.
Especially topical is the floor covering in olive-gray tones or with dark olive-colored patterns, because in this case you yourself will get rid of daily cleaning and washing of the floors. After all, on such a floor, dust or hairs will not be visible.
