Decorating & Furniture/Brown Carpet


I just moved into a new apartment and we have brown carpet. I have no idea what color couch and curtains to get to really make my living pop. Thanks for your response in advance.


I am sorry I was not able to get back to you sooner.  Thamk you for writing.  

There are MANY different color combinations that work very will with brown.  My first quesitons is... what kind of area do you live in?  What age bracket are you in?  What kind of style do you tend to like?  Transitional, more modern, traditional, etc.  If you would like to write me back with answers to these questions, I can offer an more informed answer.

Hot color combo's today include soft baby blues with chocolate browns.  Soft to medium color greens, from a pale lime to a real grass green, are also great mixtures with brown.  Also, there is a wonderful pink out on the market now, that works wonderfully with browns ranging in tone from light brown to a dark chocolate brown.

Thank you for writing.

Best of luck to you,
