NY Good Questions: Paint Color For Our Living Room?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I need some AT advice!

We recently bought a chocolate colored couch for our living room and have a few pieces from this Crate and Barrel collection (see picture).

I am stumped as to what color to paint the walls…

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

I can’t do anything yellow, since that is color of the kitchen which the living room opens up into.

Sage is our bedroom color so that won’t work either.

Does anyone have any interesting ideas for us? I recently bought a sample of “Comforting” by Behr, which is a latte color, but think it may just be to dull or blend in too much.

Thanks! Claudian
