Question
I have a new dark green leather suite of furniture in my living room and I am wondering what colour carpet, curtains and walls to put with it? I 'm thinking browns, beiges or creams?

Answer
Yeah I agree. I think beige carpet would be nice. Drapery in a golden brown with white sheers to create contrast and a light golden beige for the walls would look good. Throw some pillows on the sofa with these colors to bring it all together. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
