The range of sand tones is very wide, as we will see below, and thanks to this, in addition to being able to color our living room in sand color and to make it more pleasant, we can add other shades, more appropriate to our decorative style, whatever it may be.
So if you are looking paint with sand to paint and decorate your living room, come with me because I have prepared these living rooms painted in different shades of sand, so you can see each color and its expression and you can choose the one you like best.
Although there are many nuances, I have divided them into two groups so as not to complicate things: soft sand and darker sand. In this regard, here is the index to see the one you prefer or skip the index and look at all the sand colored rooms.
Living rooms decorated in soft earth tones
Project Dara Díaz Nice Home Barcelona
In this upstairs room, a very gentle color of sand has been added to the walls, almost off-white or whitish, depending on what you call it. It is a warm and pleasant color, but also elegant.

Very similar to this other color of sand, also warm, it clothes the spaces without burdening them. Almost imperceptibly, right? It is still elegant and naturally comfortable.

This second sand-colored room is very gentle in tone, with a bit of yellowish pigmentation, almost grayish, but is still an extremely cozy room.
Let’s look at another example.

If we are looking for a more neutral sand color, we also have shades with a bit of pigmentation as we saw earlier, which are practically white but warmer, as we also see in the upper sand room.
If we want a bright room, we need tones of sand color with a very gentle yellow pigmentation, like the one you saw in this room on the walls.
Having more yellow pigmentation, they reflect more light and create a warmer atmosphere, all without saturating the space as they are very soft.

It is a sandy tone, very light, combined with chocolate brown. The browns could be said to be part of the earth tones as well, so they always combine well with each other.
We have other colors of sand to paint a more traditional living room, like the one we see above these lines. It’s a standard sandy shade, very, very soft.
Just like the one in this other room. These shades are the most common colors of sand. These are very gentle beige tones, some are more toasted than others, but create the same spaces: cozy and bright rooms and can be combined well.

Although when someone chooses sand for their living room, it mostly does so by seeking the warmth and shelter it offers. If this is your case, the standard earthy tone, a little fried, like the one you saw in this room above these lines, is the perfect color.

Traditional beis never fails. Of course, they’re not too powerful, like this almost neutral one we see in the room above. Almost whitish, whitish with very little yellowish pigmentation. One of the softest tones of sand.

Let’s see another room.

If not so soft, we can see gray sand tones, which are extremely elegant and still warm.
These are colors that protect, decorate and change the space, but are perceived very little, like the one that this room also looks like we see below.

The difference with white is noticeable, but not so much as to define the style or decoration of the room. Simply dress the walls with class and support the rest of the decorations, without highlighting.

We can take the color even more towards the gray color, opting for a warm gray tone, which looks a bit more sophisticated. Of course, the atmosphere they create is not as pleasant as the standard earth tone.
It was a few salons in a soft sand color, let’s look at the darker tones now.
Rooms decorated in dark colors of sand
Even though I call them dark, that doesn’t mean they’re like brown chocolate, to give you an example. In the range of sand colors, none of them become overly dark, but they would no longer be sand, they would be brown, red, or other tones, like terracotta.
This room we see above these lines, designed by Gärna Design, and photographed by talented photographer Lupe Clemente, has medium dark sand.
As we can see, these tones already have a greater presence besides dressing bare walls. They’re already telling us something.

If we add dark sand to the living room, we don’t have to paint all the walls with it, we can combine it with lighter if we see that the space will be cluttered or dark.
If it seems too gray to you, don’t worry, there are other almost neutral tones of sand, but not as much gray as the one painted on the walls of this room above.
As I said at the beginning, the sand color palette is immeasurable, and each firm or brand of color has its own tones, just as Bruguer in its Easy Colors palette has a sandy tone, or Jotun with its Silent Serenity card consisting of sand tones, among to other manufacturers and ranges, making the range endless.
Another sand color for the living room that I wanted to show off is the one we see in this room designed by Jeanette Trensig.
It is a medium / dark sand, with greenish pigmentation. Very little, because green is a cool color and takes away a ton of sand from the heat.
That is why it is so special and expressive and combines so well with wood and vegetation.
If you like dark sand tones, you’ll also like the brown color, and here you can see 17 ideas for painting a brown living room.
As we can see, you can paint the living room in the color of sand with the style and shades we want, whether rustic, minimalist, modern or from any other area, thanks to the huge variety of available sand tones.
Although we have seen very clear examples, if you did not like any color or have questions about how to combine it in the living room, leave a comment that I will be happy to answer.
