Good Evening Elizabeth,
I am a first time home buyer ...I recently purchuced a dark burgandy leather sofa and loveseat, I'd like to know which wall color would work well, I can't return it and my husband loves it, no way out :) Please Help, if it can help i have a small living room with a dining room attached not alot of space to play around with.
         Thank you Mauretta

Dear Mauretta,

Thanks for the question! Men do love their leather furniture, don't they?

Actually, you have lot of color options - I think anything in earthy tones would be especially fabulous - I can see a lovely taupe or earthy sage, even a warm butter color. Just reinforce the color scheme with accessories.

Also, keep in mind the colors that exist in your dining room - the rooms should associate very closely.

Congrats on your new home!!
