Decorating & Furniture/Chocolate Brown furniture


Hi Jenny,
We have chocolate brown leather furniture and cannot decide a wall color and/or accessory colors. I see that one suggestion is for a turquoise blue, but we don't care for that color. Any other suggestions? The area rug has muted colors of sage/beige/plum. Would it be wise to replace the rug with something that has bright colors so the furniture doesn't look so boring? Thanks!!

My suggestion is to consider a powder blue for the wall color.  It's a beautiful combination and very "today".  If you don't care for blues in general, then opt for the sage (a pale version) for the walls to give your space some contrast.  

Changing the area rug is up to you.  It sounds fine to me.

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
