How to play down a color
We ordered a super comfy sofa and two chairs for a 16'x15' sunroom that is separated from the rest of our house by half walls. We (actually DH) picked a red (solid but w/some texture) upholstered sofa without first trying the fabric in the house. I know... The chairs are multi-color floral/creamy background. Well, the red sofa is actually leaning towards coral, and it's large (115"). I don't dislike it, but the color is taking over. When painting the walls, is there a way to go that will counteract the coral somewhat? Floors are beautiful red oak w/fairly natural stain with a hint of gold but we need an area rug. What color rug would help counteract coral overload? I'm thinking sisal or similar would fit the feeling we want in the room. Rest of house is open concept. The other nearby area rugs are orientals with predominant shades of grayed green and cream with hints of gold, brown and black and some bits of red here and there. One wall in this area is SW Kaffe. The rest are white, so far. This part of the house looks great. I know pictures would help but I just don't have any. I would appreciate any advice.
