Decorating & Furniture/Wall Color

Question
Hello,

We recently purchased a new home and it seems so dark in there.  There is dark wood throughout the house.  Our couch is a deep red, almost marroon, with a brick fireplace on the opposite side.  I would like an accent wall, but not sure which color to choose.  The carpet is beige.  Also, what color would you paint the remaining walls?  Thanks for your help.  Krystal Maechtlen, Wichta, Ks.

Answer
Krystal:
 

Well choose a focal point that is the accent of the room and paint that possibly on one wall and for the remaining walls choose a lighter or darker tone of the same hue. If you need additional help please go to www.sherwin-williams.com
go to homeowner
then to color and ideas
and then to color vertulizer and choose interior and then place colors on the wall and then you will see what you like.
Thanks
