Decorating & Furniture/colour scheme to match dark furniture
I would love to surprise my partner by decorating his livivng room as it has been the same for so many years. his furniture is dark wood and his sofa is a dated brown material. I am on a budget and dont realy want to buy new furniture so can you recommend a colour scheme for the walls to liven up this dull living room!?
please help, arrrh!
Without knowing the present colour of the walls, let me suggest the following. We have a brown sectional :)that goes very well with the antique white walls. You may want to go a little more yellow in the cream range if antique white would look too pale. Another colour you might try is a shade or tint of olive green, giving the impression of leaves against bark. Or, thirdly, you might consider a nurturing scheme of red, yellow and green.
Since you are on a budget, accessories are the best way to go. Add pillows, flowers--silk or real, or even a rug in any of the colourways I've mentioned above. A pine scented candle would be a nice touch for the olive green scheme to really bring you into the forest :)
Hope this helps! Blessings,
