Decorating & Furniture/Living Room


What paint color for the walls and carpet would look good with chocolate brown sofa & love seat in our living room? And would you use maple wood wall unit or mahagony?
The living room is small and needs to look bigger, we want to put in white crown molding to modern it up a bit. What are your ideas?
Please help desperate in making our living room look modern and accersorize with the right color, such as, what color pillows for the couches?

Thank you

I responded to this question with a suggestion of either blue or green for the walls and suggested a neutral berber carpet.  As for the furniture pieces, you choose the wood you like best.  Personally, I'd opt for the mahogany against a medium shade of powder blue (wall).  Match your pillows to the wall color and white.

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!
