Paint Color to Coordinate with Red Furniture

We're moving and the place we're moving to has medium gray carpeting throughout. We have bright red living room pieces. I'm coming up a blank with ideas for wall colors, please help!

There isn't much you can do about color, other than the basic off-whites or a shade of gray. Gray is very poplular right now.

We have 4 large red overstuffed pieces in a large room. We did 3 very light blue walls and a tan wall. I liked it a lot about a year later we turned the tan wall gray. I am not as happy withe the blue and gray. But all three colors go really well with red

I saw a lovely yarn afghan with the colors of gray, red, and white. I'd stick with these colors as they go together and compliment well. White walls with a few black accessories would go well too.

Yummy, yes black. White walls, use big pieces of art work with red and black in them.

I would use a gray that is one shade lighter than the carpeting. Enjoy your new place!

A light turquoise for the walls, with deep turquoise, red, and gray accents, would be stunning. Bring the colors together with pillows, artwork, wall hangings, and accessories that have all three of those colors in them. Beautiful!

I love the gray idea,but darker than the carpet. Accent with black and white. Remember that the paint will appear lighter than the sample cards they always offer at the paint store. Or buy the small bottles and paint a couple of different shades,and let them dry and then observe the effect light has on them at night and during the day until you are certain what you want to do. (I love love love black accent walls with red and gray.

But it can freak some people out. Also remember that paint is the least expensive element in decorating a room, and does the most to effect the outcome. Have you thought about separating the wall horizontally into three wide stripes and painting three differing shades of the same gray with the darkest at the bottom,and working up to the lightest at the top. What color is your woodwork? That will make a difference, too.
