Paint Color Scheme for Finished Basement

I am finishing my basement and need colors for it. This is what I am thinking. Light mocha colored walls with one wall being a red accent wall. Knotty alder cabinets with a dark glaze and black counter tops. Red furniture.

So I am not really good with color matching. Does this sound okay? Do browns, blacks, and reds look okay together? I also like the look of the of the warm purple, green, orange, and yellow for dishes. Does this sound like it would look good? Or anyone have any other color suggestions?

Since most basements are dark,I think a light color on the walls like yellow would be fine & will go with your dishes & a light color for the counter top & have some cushions with some black in them ,good luck.

I would suggest not more than than three colors with one color predominant and the other two as accents, but more of one accent than the other. A print or plaid material that contains these colors would be the safest way to add more colors, but as it is a basement, I would agree with kffrmw88 that you would need some light color in large amounts. Use the accent colors for things that can be easily replaced or changed. Personally, I like your first set of colors as you could use purple, green, or about anything as fun accents. Good luck.
