Question
Hi, my boyfriend and I will shortly be moving to a place of our own and with a baby on the way we are on a tight budget. His mother has given us her old lilac leather sofas and i have no clue how to decorate our living room around them! please help?

Answer
Hi Gill,

Thanks for the question.  A natural combination with lilac is sage or pale green.  Since lilac is a shade of red, the color opposite (and the best coordinating color) is green.  

To avoid the space being too feminine, a darker shade (like a medium to dark sage) is best.  

Regards
Jenny

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
