Help please???? What would be the best colour lounge suite for my situation?
Christine RobertsonDecember 27, 2012
I am about to purchase a new modular lounge suite and want to match my existing furniture. I have two black leather arm chairs. The room is quite large and has a bank of windows at the front which let the view outside in. The view is lovely- water and trees. I want to complement the outside view and not distract from it. I have included a photo of the room before we painted with the old furniture plus photos of the proposed new seating, and the blue colour ( although it actually is lighter).

My short list of choices are
1. A charcoal grey and then dress it with blue and white cushions ( to link to the lovely sky outside)
2 A colour called atoll which is a blue/teal colour. Then link the black with the blue by cushions and throws.
The floors are cork and the walls are all white. I have lots of wooden blinds covereing the windows.

I love the blue color but would be worried that I'd tire of it after a few years. The charcoal will be more forgiving if you change your accent colors in the future. An area rug is another way to incorporate color into the room.

I would choose the charcoal and brighten it up with cushions that have blue and other colours in it.

Always use your bold colors as accents that way they are easy to replace when your tastes and the times change. Furniture especially should be neutral. Love the deep grey color.

I am thinking charcoal is the way to go but is there any other suitable colour?

A light camel would support the light and airy view you have and work with the arm chairs and floors. This is the color family I would chose for this space. As with the charcoal, it will work with a variety of accent colors.

I like this a lot but I don't think it would be practical with a family.
