Help with paint color!

Posted by Azmiranda (My Page) on

Oh I sure need your help! I have had paint chips hanging all over my living room for a month. My sofa and loveseat are beautiful dark shade of olive and I have two wine colored accent chairs. I do not have the money to replace any of them. I have a neutral brown carpet. I am so confused on the color to paint my walls! At first I was thinking an aquamarine blue, then went to soft golds and now I am just confused. Any suggestions for me? I have loads of natural light in this room....and it is small.
Thank you thank you thank you!! :)

A pic would be helpful.
I suggest you go look at fabric or artwork or wallpaper to find something that has the olive and brown and wine to see how a professional dealt with that color combo...something that can serve as your inspiration piece. It will then be easier to pull all the colors together with a paint color that will work with all of them.

I found some good colors but has anyone used them. Behr paint "oatcake" Pebbled Sandstone or Martha stewart Honey nougat.
