confused about which colours to use

gypsyvetteApril 7, 2012
Hi, my name is Yvette, I have a beautiful wing back/velvet leopard print chair. It sits in the corner of my bed room which is VERY small. All that can fit is the chair our bed and 2 small bedside tables. I am going to paint the walls and dont want to go with the normal browns and blacks....but, I am lost now!

I consider leopard a neutral, so any direction can work. This pinky red inspiration picture you picked is beautiful. There is a great green and brown room by Olga Adler in the pictures (can't figure out how to attach those!) She doesn't have leopard in that room, but that green would work great. That green with all white bedding and your fun chair would be amazing.

Good suggestion. Here is one more...consider a nice camel tone with the leopard. In my mind using a red with leopard is very sassy and that may be what you want. There is also a quieter side to using a leopard print and that is with a subtle camel tone. Try Monroe Bisque HC-26 or Lenox Tan HC-44, both by Benjamin Moore. Think of a long, camel trench coat with leopard shoes, a bit more conservative. The red with leopard is a bit more sassy and fun, both ways are right. Try to figure out which emotion you want to evoke for your bedroom. Hope that helps. Good luck with your project. Charmean Neithart

I love red with khaki, and this is a spin on that. The ceiling is Benjamin Moore's Mexicana - not pinky red at all. It's very bold and balances the dark paneled walls. All the light from the windows keeps the floor from feeling unbalanced with the darker colors int he room. Hope that helps! : )
