Answer
Sherry,

Thanks for writing.

The first thing that comes to mind in brown leather. I think it would amazing with the wall colors and the flooring and the rug and it would tie in nice with the hunter green kitchen. Try a medium to dark brown leather. Nothing that is too dark that it almost looks black, but just a nice brown. Also, leather comes in so many finishes now. I suggest a dull finish and if you are into a little more rustic or country feel, try the worn leather look. It has diffrent shades and shows the splitting and lines.

Good luck.
