Color help needed for the color challenged: please help!
August 24, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I'm trying to decide on a color for an upholstered chair in our living room. I'm so bad with colors and knowing which colors match or look good together. Our couch is a dull cranberry. We have beige walls. Our curtains are black & white plaid. The other furniture is is all pine. Our decorating style is farmhouse/traditional. The chair is going to sit next to the cranberry couch and in front of the black & white plaid curtains.

Any suggestion on a good color?

I think a gray/charcoal velvet type fabric on your chair will complement the cranberry sofa and black/white plaid curtains. Then, you could add a toss pillow that will relate to your sofa.

Gray and pine furniture don't look right to me. I have a lot of pine in my house and find that muted greens and blues work well with the yellowish tones in it.

What are the black and white drapes connected to in the space they don't make sense to me. I agree a muted sagey green would work but I would change the drapery so it has some connection to the rest of the space, something like these if you go with a sage chair

The drapery connects to the black lighting fixtures, fans and black paintings framed on the walls, as well as the black TV. I love the curtains. I don't want to change them. The room right now is a black/red/beige color scheme. I love all the color suggestions. Would a lighter beige chair work? Sort of a tone on tone?
