Decorating & Furniture/living room


My living room has a slate gray couch and 2 red, not bright red, armchairs.  I don't even know what paint colors for the walls to look at. Can you help?


Hi Linda,
I would suggest going with a soft gray color for the main walls and then doing an accent wall opposite of the chairs in the same red as your chairs. I would also add black and white frame photos to complete the look. Go to this link to see a mock up I did to help you visualize the idea.

I hope this helps and good luck!
