Decorating & Furniture/Painting Living Room

Question
My couch is navy with little rose flecks throughout,I also have a glider rocker which is rose and the vertical blinds and carpet are a  raspberry color. I want to repaint my walls which are now a pale blue. I would appreciate any ideas. Thank you.

Answer
Your third color should be more neutral - something that will enhance the look of both the raspberry and navy.  My favorite neutral is Toasty Grey by Glidden.  My second favorite is Squirell, also by Glidden (it's a bit darker than the toasty grey).  

Due to the dark shade of your other fabrics, I'd lean toward the taupe (toasty grey).  

Thanks for writing! :>) Jenny

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com 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.

Experience

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!
