Q: I just purchased a cool retro couch. I love it — it's the perfect color grey and I got it for a great price! The only thing is that the piping on it was done in a bright orange. It goes well with the gray but I don't have orange in any of my other fabrics. The dining room is open to the kitchen and I just reupholstered my dining room chairs and the fabric has no orange. Should I try to bring in orange in a rug? Or with other fabrics for pillows? Or should I ignore it?
