Question
Hi, I'm looking for new furniture for my living room but not sure what color will look best.  The walls are terra cotta, the carpet is a darker beige.  What colors would you suggest for furniture?

Answer
Hi Cheryl
The first colors that came to mind were chocolate brown or sage green.
Those two colors would look stunning with your terra cotta walls.
You can also add some yellow in the accessories.
I would find a piece of furniture in a pattern with the colors I noted, and then work around that piece - preferably the love seat or couch.
Then any accent chairs and pillows can be either solids in those colors or another pattern.
Have fun with all the colors.
Thanks for writing.
