Question
Hi, I have maroon carpets and i was just wanting to know what color furniture would look good with that color carpet and what type of decorations. Thank you.  :)

Answer
Kristen,

Thanks for writing.

With maroon carpet, I would get something in a cream or taupe color. If you are into floral prints, there is a lot of great furniture out there with maroons in it. Really, any print with a maroon intertwined with other colors will look good. Also, if you are into leathers, the medium brown would look very rich as well a taupe leather.

As far as accessories, stick to wood accent furnature aposed to white. Try a walnut or oak...nothing cherry. Foliage, decorative glass sets, florsals and wreaths with maroon in it would look great as well as whites. Also try gold fabric lamps with bronze or gold fixtures.

Good luck!
