Question
I have medium brown furniture , brown couch, rustic coffee table and end tables... and I wan't to bring it all together, with colors, yet keep it light... What colors can I use, on the walls, throw pillow, decorations?

Answer
Nicole,

Thanks for writing.

For a warmer look, go with an olive green, mustard yellow, or terra-cotta. For a more contemporary fresh look, go with a pale pastel sky blue color.

Any of these colors will show off you furniture well and bring color into the space.

Goo luck and happy painting.
