Decorating & Furniture/my walls


i have a chocolate brown couch and chair what color should i paint my walls
look forward to hearing from you

Hi Amanda,
I am often asked this question.  Brown is a neutral, so pretty much anything will go.  Do you have a favorite pillow or accessory?  If not, look for your inspiration and pull a color to tie everything together.  Blue is a popular choice for brown these days.  But go with what you like.  It could be sage green, terra cotta, golden yellow, grey, etc.   Good Luck!
