Living Room Help

Posted by lmtish610 (My Page) on

I recently moved into this condo and I really need help with this living room. The carpet was gray and two of the walls are gray and the other wall is butter yellow. YUCK!!! So I bought plush carpet that's a cappuccino color (sometimes it looks coppery or gold; I'm not really happy about that either.) and I still need to paint.

Question 1: With this brownish, coppery, gold looking carpet, what color should I paint the walls? BTW - I have burgundy leather furniture and don't how much longer I will keep it.

Question 2: The wall in this picture is 19' wide and 10' tall and I am having a hard time figuring out how to fill up the space. I have a tv stand and a 55" tv, but there's a ton of space on both side and above the tv. The tv and stand is only about 4 feet tall, so there's 6' of empty space above it.

Any suggestions?

RE: Living Room Help

having a combination of black and brown is best because it gives a contemporary look to your bedroom
