Decorating & Furniture/Red Leather Couch


I have a red leather couch set in my living room with evergreen colored rugs.  What color should I paint the walls in order to tone town the "perpetual Christmas" color scheme?  What are good accent colors for pillows, throws, etc?

Hi Marie,
I would aim for some colors in the golden yellow family. Something like a Sunflower color.  This will brighten the room and add some life other than the "perpetual Christmas" theme.
By the way, that made me smile.
It will work great when it is that time of year - so you're lucky there.
Thanks for writing.
Have fun deorating.
