I have a butterscotch color leather sofa with dark hardwood floors. I need a wall color that will carry into the kitchen which has white cupboards. Could I go with a shade lighter on my leather sofa and carry a grey color into the kitchen?
From the photo, it looks like the couch is white. If it truly is butterscotch, why not paint the walls a medium gray and more toward the blue side. Gray and butterscotch would be a great combo.
Sherwin Williams has a web site that allows you to change colors of the walls - was very helpful to me. Easy to find via google. Good luck
Since I prefer dark walls, especially with your light couch, I would love to see blue/gray (in the darker gray slate family). Which would look great in the living room and kitchen, as it looks like you have black countertops.
What color should I paint my bedroom walls? My bedroom suite is cherrywood.

When I bought my home the kitchen was kind of an olive green (see picture; table on right side of photo) I didn't feel like painting it and put our pub table in in the kitchen anyway (which is similar to a cherry finish) I'm surprised at how it works together. I get a lot of comments on it. You wouldn't have to do this tone of green, but similar tones of red and green seem to work together. Good luck!
I would suggest a sage green; similar to what Kathy has on her walls only more neutral and less yellow.
I have a bs in Art and the reason that the red/green combo works so well is that red and green are complimentary colors. I would choose a more neutral green due to my personal preferences, as I like the look to be more grounded and pop a little less.
Other colors that may work well maybe a pale warm yellow to play up the warm tones in the wood.
A beige with cool undertones would be nice too if you plan to accessorise a lot.
If you want your furniture to be the main attraction I would suggest a clean color; if you want a more harmonious room a more neutral shade. Just nothing dark; this would make for very little contrast resulting in a bland room; which could posssibly look smaller as well.
Another note cherry finish is beautiful especially if it is highgloss even though it is higher maintence it would be tempting to buy paint in an eggshell finish. So you would also have the contrast of matte walls against glossy furniture.
What colors will look nice with butterscotch leather sofa and black leather chaise?
Teal - There are many different tones and levels of Teal.
Pick one bright color you like. Not neon but say a sunflower yellow, or gemstone colors.
I have 2 hunter green recliners and a tan sectional. We bought these chairs used 22 years ago, but they're Lazy Boys and are still in great shape. We're moving into a new house and want to put them in my family room.
it could work. For some reason I don't care for navy blue and green. Somehow what occurs to me are different shades and intensities of green, and light cream/yellow to accentuate it. IF you want a dark wall, do a deep intense forest green, and for accents, a nice mint green.
I would like the walls a lighter color. How about cream, with curtains in a print with some of the hunter green in them?
Will light pink walls match cherry wood furniture?

I think it would be a good color scheme, sounds pretty to me!
It is pretty cheap to paint walls. The idea of those colors together sound pretty dated to me.
If your intent is to make this charming little love seat a focal point, then perhaps a strong yellow background would be suitable.
If on the otherhand, your intent is to play down the presence of the love seat, then choose a color which will help it blend in with the background.
