New Sofa - Help me choose a color palette & lets redo my entire room
Carrie Sty

I have a large open living/family room that needs updating! I have kids and we enjoy watching television on the weekends and spending time together. We just purchased a sectional sofa from Macy's in a chrome color (don't worry, I got the protection plan...since I have kids ;) - See Photo below. My question is, do I start all over and paint the walls, get a new area rug, and repaint or redo the fireplace? What colors will accent my new sectional sofa and make my room look clean, fresh and put together. I need to purchase curtains and hardware. The sectional sofa will face the wall mounted television and fireplace.
I need your advice. Thanks.

Once you get the sofa in, pick up paint samples in a shade like the sofa or like the beige in the rug. Get large white poster boards and paint 12-15" squares in the centers. Place them around the space for 24 hours, moving them around to see how they look in different light. A neutral paint will be more versatile and you can use accessories, art, pillows, throws, drapes to add colors from the rug as your accents.
