Wall color help please!
November 9, 2012 in Design Dilemma
**Room in progress**...... so made these drapes a few months ago and I've been stuck on picking a wall color. I love love bright white and navy or teal with orange, but the tan in the drapes is stumping me! I feel like there is SO much potential for this room.
Ignore the sofa fabric...recovering those.

Why not do the wall that the drapes are on in a dark blue to match the fabric and then do bright white on the other walls? I can also see these on a brick red wall: parisian red CSP-1170 Moroccan Red 1309 Benjamin Moore Burnt Peanut Red 2081-10 Benjamin Moore Like the Parisian red the best.

Think about positioning the sectional sofa in a V formation centered on the windows with a square low end table.

What fabric will you be recovering the sofa with? It looks like you favor traditional styles. Teal would look lovely.

Hi---well love that you're big on color, me too... :) I found some pics for inspiration---perfect with your drapes, lots of color, and all of your lovely pieces you have could easily be incorporated into such a design and color palette. Hope this is helpful. Good Luck!

Thanks so much for the ideas! I was going crazy just staring at that room with blah light yellow walls! I love the white next to the drapes... I painted part of the wall to see it. Love the navy baseboard and bookshelf idea too. I painted the red bricks white...so it's much easier to "see" what colors in the room now

I was hoping that you would paint the walls a soft blue, like the blue curtains in Living Room 2 that Natalie posted. Keep the trim white and use Navy on the sofa.

Pick your sofa covering and then paint the walls with a colour that works with the drapes and the sofa. I assume you could pick a colour out of the sofa covering that would work.

i like the idea of brick red on the walls next to the drapes but if you painted the brick fireplace white then maybe that is not what you should do....... I would suggest an orange on the wallI around the with curtains and the wall it faces, then I would paint behind the wreath above the fireplace in that little square I would paint it grass green. Then keep the sofas and other furniture neutral and then add navy and green accents elsewhere. Below are some general color ideas you can use.
