Decorating & Furniture/living room colors


Hi, I am trying to figure out flooring for my living room. My walls are coffee with cream colored, my furniture ranges from brown to cream and I have white tongue and groove on the bottom 1/2 of 1 wall. I need flooring that will hold up to sand and traffic with a color that compliments what I have. Lighting is good. Do I go with a laminate or wall to wall. What color?

Hi, Denise.  Whether you choose laminate, hardwood or carpet is really a personal decision and  you'll have to do some research on what will work best with your daily lifestyle.  As for colour choice I would suggest a medium to rich coffee/mocha colour.  

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.
