Decorating & Furniture/Couch matching
I jsut bought a house (my first one :)) and in the living room there is a blakc/gray HUGE bring fire place. I am thinking of doing blacks (black coffee table etc.) I recently bough ivory and greeny coloured curtains and was debating on the colour of couch to buy? I was thinking a green colour as I think Black furniture may be a little to much as the space is very small?
I NEED YOUR HELP
Hi Micale, If your fireplace if dark and overwhelming, bringing in large pieces of dark furniture will only make your space feel heavy & dark and draw attention away from the fireplace. Given that you have already bought your curtains, I would suggest a couch colour in the same family as the ivory: warm,yet light. This colour will also work as a wall colour. You can vary it a couple of shades as well. If you really would like a green couch, just make sure it is more on the neutral side with a hint of green.
You can certainly still have your black coffee table and maybe a few other pieces of small accent furniture and accessories in the green colour. You may want to choose a table with a glass top which will help lighten the feel of the space.
I also offer an 'Ask the Decorator' service on my website. I would be happy to be of further assistance to you if needed.
Thank you, for your time.
