Question
Hi! thank goodness i found this site, I'm having trouble deciding what color should i paint my living/dining room. My existing furniture are dark brown micro fiber upholstered with green,gold and red/burgundy accent in it. I really love traditional designs. please help thanks so much

Answer
Hi Jasmin

A rich burgundy red would be stunning but is a very strong, dark look so you would need a large room with plenty of natural light to be able to carry this off.

If you need something lighter then either a sandy gold or pale sage green would look good too.

Kind regards,

Andrea
