What matches pine green?

by Polly Zieper
My mom bought a pine green sleep sofa because it was a great price. She lives in a 1 bedroom condo, and needed another bed for when her grandkids sleep over. Now, she realizes that she hates the pine green color. I want to help her get throw pillows, a blanket, an area rug, lamps, etc, to change the look of the living room so it doesn't scream 'pine green'! What other colors should the accents be?

    I suggest you Google "what colors goes with pine green" - there are some really neat colors shown from a shade of orange, yellow/gold to a shade of purple. Good Luck!

    Canvas is easy. Buy 2 painters drop cloths at the hardware store. one for making the pillows and the other for making the throw. Sew trim around it. You can even line one side with fleece. You can do this for a lot less money then anything and the color will match anything!

    Start with a cream colored throw or 2, add some gold, taupe or tan and some shade of orange in pillows.

    Would it work to throw her favorite quilt over it so that most of the green does not show?

    Personally, I would start with the opposite colors on the color spectrum. I have a light brown print loveseat paired with peach, cream, green and a little dark brown...Awesome! Just have fun!

    I would just invest in a quality slipcover to fit over the couch. Buy a shower curtain rod to push it down into the back of the bottom cushions so it will hold well and won't have to constantly be straightened.
