Decorating & Furniture/carpet color


QUESTION: What color carpet would go with blue-grey drapes and walls with dark raspberry below a chair rail and faux paint of blue-grey, cream and raspberry above the chair rail. The furniture in the room has blue-grey, raspberry, cream and pink. Thank you for any help.

ANSWER: Hi Terri,
       Unfortunately my program does not give the name of the manufacturer of the carpeting. These are just some colour suggestions for you to note when you go to your local showroom, since I'm not sure of what you have available. If you are considering, or have looked online you can tell me the dealer you've been looking at and I will make more specific recommendations from their line :)
