Decorating & Furniture/Color of Red


Hi Kim, thanks so much for responding! I would describe the color as a oriental poppy red. Actually, if I can post a link in here

that is pretty much the color, and i have that rug, too, though it's smaller. And the couch is smaller. It's one of those 3 seaters, and one of the seats is extended out, Like an L shape.

Hi Lynne,
I'm apologizing to everyone for not getting back sooner.  There was definitely something going on with my in box over the weekend.  Sorry for the delay.  Anyway, thanks for sending the photo.  Great colors!  I tried as best I could to match the color. Love the rug too! Here are a few suggestions.  Sherwin Williams 6387 Compatible Cream or 6373 Harvester.  They are golden yellow colors.  Then more of a beige/brown would be 6114(Bagel) 6115(Totally Tan)and 6094(Sensational Sand). I also like the beige in the rug, so if you can match that, that would be a really nice color.  I hope this is helpful, let me know if you have any additional questions.  Take Care.
