Paint colors, living room ideas.

Debbie Adams


Question, im going to be re doing my living room in a couple months. I have picked out a sectional in either tan( light brown) or gray.
I was going to paint my walls gray trimmed in white, but now with my sectional colors i don't think that will work now. I would like to have a light teal or turquoise color scheme in my living room.
  1. Any suggestions on wall paint colors? Or ideas?

    You certainly can paint the walls, just not the same color as the sectional. Try going two or three shades lighter on the gray. Use pillows and rugs for accent colors in teal and turquoise, accessories in the same family of blues. Lamps are another place to bring in an accent. A little punch of yellow somewhere in the room will make the other two colors pop.
    Hope this is of some inspiration to you. Good luck!
