Q: My husband and I are not fans of cream/white walls and are excited to be moving into an apartment where we can paint the walls! We currently have this couch that contains multiple shades of brown/tan/cream (you can ignore the purple pillows). Our apartment will also have beige carpeting. I tend to lean toward grey hues with blue or green undertones, but with the couch I'm afraid we would end up with a clashing disaster. Because the couch has so many different shades in it, I'm wary of choosing a brown color that could potentially clash with the couch. Any suggestions for paint colors that will complement the couch, but won't leave us with a room dominated by white/cream walls, ceiling, and floor?
