Decorating & Furniture/bedroom accent colors


My daughter is redoing her first home. We painted the walls a soft light gray color, her comforter set is dark charcoal gray. We'd like to accent with some red accessories. I'm wondering about using some chocolate brown also.. or do you think black would be a better choice?

Hi, I personally would recommend using more muted shade of red and chocolate brown for a relaxed feel.  If you prefer making more of a bold statement then, use the bright red and black. It all depends on the feeling you want to create for the room.  Either way, it'll look great!
Thank you.
