Decorating & Furniture/paint color to compliment match printed sofa material
I have a room that needs color and furniture arrangement.
The room is about 18' (North to South) X 24' East to West). So the North and south walls are the longest walls. The North wall is blank with a door at the right side. The South wall has a large window with about 5 feet of wall space on either side. The West wall has a brick hearth with a small Jotul black propane (looks like a wood burning stove) sitting on it. The hearth is a brick half round with brick back and brick mantel. The bricks vary in color and are very "aged" looking. There is a small window to the left of the fireplace and a door to the right. Wall space is limited to above the brick hearth. The East wall has a large closet w/double bi-fold doors (yuck!) on the right side and a coat closet on the right side. There is no wall space to speak of on the East side.
I have a sofa and matching chair that are patterned. The background is a mix of mossy green and brown. The leave/floral pattern atop this is lighter brown with yellow or gold tones. The sofa and chiar both have arems and pillow backs. I don't know what colors to put on the walls with this fabric. Please advise. How should I arrange furniture for this space? I have an armoire that houses a TV and electronics. I have two bookcases on either side of the TV and I have bookcase that runs the length of the window on the south wall. The East and West walls don't allow for any furniture. I was thinking about getting rid of the bookcases and putting some nice built in's on the largest north wall. Primarily, I am interested in color for the walls, ceiling, floors and trim. Furniture placement is secondar to this. Needing some color in Maine, Laurie
From the information that you have provided I would suggest going with a beige tan color or a soft green color for the walls and for the furniture placement I would put the sofa against the North wall and then have your chair and possibly another chair directly across from the sofa. I would do the built ins against the south wall.
I would love to be able to assist you further. Can you please send images to email@example.com? Thank you and I hope this helps. Good Luck!
