Good Questions: What color pillows and rug?

Good Questions: What color pillows and rug?

Jun 12, 2007

Paula needs some color suggestions: This room needs a lift. I can only afford to replace the cushions and the mat. I find the current orange cushions too much with the peach tiles. I don't even know what colours to use. The room is a huge room with high antique white beamed ceilings and is an open plan room which has a teal/green kitchen at the other end (See pic after the jump). I intend covering up the brickwork on the kitchen bench so would also be very grateful for any ideas for that!

Hi Paula- We suggest using the painting you have above the couch as a good starting point for color direction. Perhaps consider finding pillows that pick up the warm green tones from the trees and grass, maybe something in a light olive, or sawgrass color. For the rug, I'd try looking for something that had several colors in it. I'd look for something maybe with some darker reds/burgundy, purples, browns, but ideally also with some orange, yellow, and/or green accents. Does anyone else have any color suggestions or ideas for Paula? What do you think she should try? Please leave your thoughts in the comments!
