The eternal question that every home owner asks "How do I decorate around that brown sofa ?" Well, first... stay away from bringing in any more brown in the room. All brown, and no other color makes a very dull living room :( . What you really need to do is bring in other colors. If you prefer warm colors, pick beige, orange, reds and Off White. Or cool down the room with colors like greens and blue. Personally, I prefer pairing warm and cool shades as that creates a balance in the room. Look out your window and notice the nature's harmony between blue sky, green trees and brown earth.
Now the question is how to put it all together? If you were to paint the walls green, brown sofa and bring in all accent pieces in blue like throw pillows, vase, chair, art. Will it look good ? I would say, most probably not. Instead of getting blue chair - how about a blue-green-brown chair like the one above. Now that you have something that has all the colors from your color scheme, you can add other decorative accents in more than one hue from your color palate i.e blue, blue green, green, brown-blue, green-brown. It will all work !! Go on give it a try, if it still doesn't work, leave a comment and I will be happy to help. Its my passion after all.
Still not sure ? Steal the design idea above. But the million dollar question is where to get the same furnishings, the decorative accents and what paint color to use? so here you go...
