Wall Color to Go with Red Sofa & Grey Carpet?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q:I want to re-do my basement rec room. Currently we have a fairly bright red leather sofa and black and white furniture. The carpet is a grey berber with little flecks of yellow, reds, greens, etc.

My goal is to warm the room up a bit and I'm having a block about what color to paint the walls so they complement both the red sofa and carpet.

Currently the walls are a light grey. We are going to purchase either an oversize chair of love-seat as well.

Any advice?
