Good Questions: What Vibrant Wall Color Goes With this Rug?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

This is the rug that won’t go away. My husband liked this rug so much for our small home office space, that we bought it. It’s not the most attractive of rugs. I’d like to kick it to the curb, but that’s not an option at this time.

Currently, we have two small warm brown leather chairs on top of it and a small dark brown wood desk against the wall of a 12×12 room that doesn’t get a whole lot of natural light. At the moment the walls are a unflattering light yellow beige. I want to liven the space up with a vibrant paint color, but I’m at a loss. I was thinking of chartreuse or a blue. Paint color suggestions from your readers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! FastKat
