Question
I would like to paint my living room walls (which are now an off-white). We have a light pine ceiling. floors and baseboards.
Our chesterfield & loveseat hass broad stripes of  dark (forest) green, a tan colour and a thin burgandy looking stripe. Any suggestions for wall colour?

Answer
Hi Lisa,
      Take the cues from the furniture fabric. You could choose a tan such as CIL Costa Mesa, or for a serene look a green or burgundy such as drumbeat, forest green, or southern pine, also by CIL. Hope this helps, and good luck :)
