      I think Veranda Yellow by Behr for the walls would look smart, accented with wine color drapes.

        With all the dark colors, I'd go light color walls. If you're bored with cream perhaps a pale peach, blue, or light pink tone beige.

        Question: Need Decorating Ideas - Navy Carpet and Tan Furniture

        I just have a question. We have a navy blue berber carpet in our living room and our furniture is a tanish color and we'd like to paint our walls.. They are white and they join our dining room which has the hard wood floor.

        What would be a good color to go with the other colors? We can't afford to change anything except the paint, right now. Can you help? Thank you!

        I would try a cabin look since it goes well with navy and hard wood floors. I also have navy carpet throughout my house and had my walls painted a baby blue but the feeling was cold and the contrast was too sharp. Orange actually works well with blues, as well as khaki, some browns, reds and whites. Navy usually is a neutral color so you want something on the walls that won't make both the wall and carpet 'pop' which is usually lighter colors. I would try a mid tone and maybe keep your furniture the same, but add little things that draw the eye and try to create balance.

        Navy is hard to work with.

        Question: Living Room Paint Color Advice

        By Sessie 1 4

        I just lost my parents, my mom on Christmas Day 2014 and dad just a few weeks ago. Now have their furniture.

        For the living room - I have a primarily white cloth sofa with tiny floral print in red and dark blue flowers with green stems and leaves, a white leather loveseat, and my mother's custom Louis XVI throne chairs (made for her design specs in the late 1950s) of pale "baby blue" (a.k.a "powder blue" or "sky blue") crushed velvet and slightly-lighter shade of same blue tinted wood. Their living room (in the house where I grew up) had wall-to-wall high pile carpeting that was was emerald green when I was a child in the 1960s-'70s, and a light mushroom color when I was an adult in the 1980s, '90s, and early 2000s - always with white walls. It also had a pair of pale yellow tinted wood bookcases, which I also have. The tables are brass with glass tops, and a pecan wood table. I think I also still have my parents' pale yellow throw pillows that used to sit on the patterned sofa. (The white leather love seat was newer, I didn't grow up with that.)

        I am moving into a new house. It has golden oak hardwood floors. I own an antique late-1920s/early-1930s Art Deco console bar (a Prohibition-era "hideaway" bar) that is gilded emerald green leather and black lacquered wood, which I would like to put in the living room.

        This sounds busy, but since the furniture is almost completely all white upholstery, it's really not so crazy with too many colors. But I am at a loss to figure out what color to paint the walls. The room is darker than either the living room I grew up with or the one in this house that I've lived in for 30 years, and it's smaller than either of the other rooms, too.

        I have a textured tall white pottery floor lamp, a few wooden floor lamps (darker woods), and pale yellow with blue ginger jar table lamps, as well as my grandparents' antique Stiffel brass table lamps. Also, we have hubby's family's antique piano - a mid-century dark black-brown lacquered Baldwin Acrosonic spinet - and my family's antique piano - a nearly 200-year old upright piano of red mahogany and hand carving all over it. We don't need two pianos and there isn't room for them at the new house. (We're downsizing, as we're now seniors.) It is likeliest that we'll be able to sell the Baldwin spinet piano faster and easier than my upright piano, so we expect to keep the red mahogany upright instrument.

        I really hate white walls, having grown up in a house with nothing but white walls and little artwork hanging on those. My parents preferred other forms of art than paintings or prints. I'd like not to have to paint the walls in my own living room white, unless there's no other good option. I do, however, have plenty of oil paintings from hubby's family home, and a good number of prints, and a lot of original water color paintings, oil paintings, and sketches (hubby's sister was an artist).

        Help! What color(s) would look best on the walls of my new living room?
        Thank you.

          Here is a pic of the Art Deco bar, but this pic was taken before restoration, which I'm in the middle of doing. So it's a greenish-charcoal-ish wood, a darker black wood top, and the gilt green leather (and handles) remain the same - just re-done.

          Does it matter if each room in my house is a different color? I want to paint my living room a Tiffany blue/chocolate brown, but I can't figure out what color to do the kitchen. I am thinking about a rustic fall red, but I don't want it to look crazy coming from the living room to the kitchen. The living room is closed off from the kitchen, but I'm just unsure if that makes a difference or not.

          Most times you see b&w photos they are on white walls like NY loft type decor, but I do like mauve or brown behind b&w. Love your crown molding. May I suggest leaving your walls white in a flat paint, then paint 6" stripes using semi gloss. Makes the walls look rich. You might also try painting your lamp shades, make them pop. That's a great picture. I think it should stand alone.

              I do not think red will brighten the room; I suspect it will overpower it. Go with a lighter off-white, for instance. Greens are tricky to match, and look odd if they are not well co-ordinated, so I would not use green on the walls with a green accent chair. You can add colour and punch to the room with throws, pillows, and artwork.

              Question: Need Advice on Remodeling

              By sal 1

              My future wife and I will be moving into a two family house after we are married owned by her grandparents. It is an older house but looks great. I would be living in the bottom floor. I was thinking of redoing the floor with a rosewood Pergo floor from Lowe's - Link to Floor

              Any suggestions about to do or not to do that? The house is set up that as soon as you walk down the stairs you are in a pretty large living room longer than it is wide with two support poles towards the left side and at the end a huge bar spanning the width of the room. My question is what color should I paint this room, if I stick with rosewood floor. It has to be a good living room color but also compliment the bar scene.

              Second what color should I paint the kitchen, which would have the same flooring? But the cabinets are a lighter yellow wood almost like this flooring - Cabinet Color Link

              Should I sand them down and restain them or just do the flooring in that color? but then what colors should I paint the walls with that floor? Also the bar's front side is like that wood paneling, can I paint on that?

              If you can also give some tips on the bedroom, which would have a carpet of my choice in it and the bathroom now is pink with pink tiles, sink, and toilet. Thanks for all your time and thoughts everyone. Please respond!

                Yellow and orange - I would suggest a lighter yellow, or a soft green, but depending on the effect you want, you could even go with a fairly intense blue. What color is the floor/carpet, draperies, etc.? Rugs, pillows, and decorative items will be needed to pull all this together, but would be fun. By changing some accessories as pillows, vases, and such, you can have a new and exciting look several times a year.

                Your chocolate couch will go with any color, so pick your favorite color. As a sample, mine is orchid, so we started with that color and cut the shade in half (at the store) and it turned out to be very pale orchid, not a shock to the system. In another room, we have another favorite color, aqua - did the same thing and all of it is very livable. We haven't changed the colors and still love them for 14 years. It's getting time to repaint and we are going for the same colors again. So, seriously consider what are the favorite colors in your family. The wall area closest to the kitty steps is the actual color I was discussing, we have black furniture.

                Try doing the ceiling the same vanilla color, because the lighter you go with the ceiling the more space you seem to have, it feels way bigger if you do a light color on the ceiling, and then it will match the walls.

                  Go look at show homes in your city and see what the trends are. Then choose the colour you like. Your sofa is brown, and the flooring white, so you have a pretty clear field. I think you should look at going with a brighter colour in your accent pieces and get some wall art that will pep up the room. I like a nice pale background, so I would leave most of the walls white/off white, and paint one of the walls dark brown for contrast.

                  By Umer M. 1

                  I'm attaching the pics of the furniture I've bought for the living room:

                  • The TV table and the coffee table are dark brown top with rustic green bottom.
                  • TV table coffee table

                  • The couch is a brown leather couch with two dark brown side tables.
                  • sofa side table
                  • I plan to have dark brown wooden blinds on the window in the living room.
                  • I've bought two single seaters which are green.
                  • Stockholm green chair
                  • I have a large greenery portrait from Ikea to go behind the couches.
                  • print

                  So it's more of a dark brown with green theme for the lounge which also extends into the dining area. My dining table and chairs are also dark brown.

                  Here is what I need advice with; my lounge is not very big.

                  • What colour should I paint on the wall behind the couch on which I will hang the large scenery print as in the picture?
                  • What colour should I paint the wall behind the TV table which will be opposite to the couch?
                  • The window is more like a door and opens into the garden. It will have dark wooden blinds. What colour should I paint that wall?
                  • Any advice would be much appreciated as I'm really confused about the colour scheme. I wanna have one or two large plants in there as well to go with my green and brown theme.

                    Thanks.

                    I agree with Marty on the cream paint. It not only goes with the different shades of green, but also with the dark brown. You really do need a lighter color in the room. If you had chosen lighter color furnishings, then you could swing for darker walls. Light walls also give the illusion the room is larger. Have fun!

                    Question: Living Room Wall Paint Color Advice

                    I have brown furniture and tan colored tile in my living room. Currently the walls are a very slight off white, but I'd like to paint them a different color. I just don't know what would look good. I would love some ideas.

                    Dark colours are very trendy. Maybe you could do one feature wall in a dark brown or a rusty red, and then the other walls in lighter shade. You could add colour with your paintings on the wall, throws and pillows. Or perhaps, if you have drapes, make them white with white accessories, so the room is dark brown and white. I think that would look quite nice.

                    Question: Living Room Wall Color

                    We just purchased a house in which the living and dining room are painted a really nice beige color. We just purchased a couch that is roughly the same color as the walls. Should we paint the walls a darker color than the couch? Or is it OK to have them roughly the same color?

                    The real question here is if you like the look of the couch in the room the way it is. If you do, fine. I agree with the other poster that a nice throw and accent pillows might be enough colour. Or, you could use a lot of pictures/paintings/artwork on your walls to liven things up.

                    I would go with off-white (but not a greyed white - those can be depressing), grey, or ivory. With that as a neutral background, you can use the black curtains. If your budget stretches that far, you might consider a slipcover or large throw for the couch, as it makes a very powerful statement. If you covered it up with a neutral or with a blue cover, you could go with pale blue walls.

                    I have a combo living/dining room. There are cream walls, a burgundy sectional, black end tables, black/dark wood dining set, and cream carpet. I am looking to put more color in this room but on a low budget. I was thinking turquoise and golden yellow as accents. I would like to paint the walls white, if we went with those accent colors. Any ideas, comments, or advice?

                    Keep what you have, cream carpet, wall, and furnishings then find some patterned material (style you like) in several patterns that include some of the basic colors you already have plus your desired turquoise and gold. Make pillow shams, seat covers for dining room, lamp shades or whatever.. Also add color in prints on you walls and color in lamps on your end tables. Books and magazines can also add a zip to a room. Go to the thrift store and find hard cover books with the colors you like and stack or add to any bookshelf you may have. Paint old wicker baskets in your fun colors to hold "stuff". My daughter has found great pieces of fabric at thrift stores, and it doesn't always have to be straight yardage. Scarves and dresses, old drapes can give you some great material. Have fun and you do not have to spend much money and it should look smashing!

                    I would paint the walls a nice deep cream color (that has a yellow undertone). Then paint an accent wall the same color as the piping on the sofas. Now you can experiment with with throw pillows, lamps, etc. to find an other accent (smaller) colors you like.

                    I am usually good with this, but I am stumped! I am purchasing a brown leather couch and want to paint my walls. My tile that surrounds the living room area which is carpeted is in a very light caramel color with a little bit of grey. My walls now are caramel, but I want to update everything. Any suggestions on a color pallet here?

                      One of the colors complimentary to you sofa color is 526e6a

                      One of the colors complimentary to your tile color is 729dc7

                      I lifted one of the shades from your tile to get caramel. I desaturated the caramel a bit and went towards gold. I think you should take your existing caramel wall color and add gold to it. How dark or light you go would be your choice. I would add some off white here and there, too. Maybe f9f9f9

                      I think there should be at least one strong accent color. You can use your own imagination for that.

                      I have a 14 x 20 foot living room that has a light wood floor, 4 foot light wood bookcases, with an ivory stone fireplace at one end of the room. The fireplace also features a three tone mosaic tile - dark brown, cream, and clear. All of the doors, mopboards also match the floor wood. To the left of the bookcase wall is an 8 foot window wall. So I really need a color that will pop because there is really only one and a half "real wall space" areas. I am not afraid to use color, but can't come up with something that won't just get absorbed into the wood. Help!

                        Orange, Aqua, Periwinkle Blue, or Cream and Avocado Green always look nice together and you have plenty of natural lighting so keep the room from being too dark if you choose that color of green.
