Need help living room dilemma

Sharnay StaleyFebruary 17, 2013
I have painted the accent wall a dark olive color. I'm not sure if I need to paint the rest of the living room or just leave it as it is. The current color is a beige color. I am wanting to go with a contemporary feel. I am also looking for suggestions on what color should my curtains be? Thanks in advance""

Beautiful room! I do think you went too dark on the accent wall color.

U think so? When the outside light hits it u can see the green. Since the accent wall is dark should i go with a lighter curtain?

I like the dark accent wall! Be brave! Curtains...maybe a light creme with some dark design running through in some way? I painted a deep brown ( with a slight smokey green undertone) accent wall and LOVE it..it actually is the wall where my flat screen TV/fireplace are placed..makes watching the TV more enjoyable not having to fight a lot of light around it...and the fireplace surround POPS ..the mantle blends well with it too.
