Can someone help me choose the suitable color pallette for blue grey Manstad iKEA sofa that my husband bought but havnt installed yet. The room is painted in light grey and white cieling , white TV stand , a dark brown coffee table and black and white striped rug. Please help me choose suitable colors to throw on the sofa and have a great vibrant room. Thank you

A kelly green print on your pillows would look fresh and bold, along with the solid bright yellows as mentioned above.

PS this is the same couch I am looking for to place in our living room condo, thanks for showing it to me up close (see discussions gewen:) For my color palate I will use golden and red pillows due to the colors in the rug we are buying.

We did a light grey paint with ours and it turned out beautiful.

You can select a multi coloured cushion that has the sofa gray in it and then draw from the colours in the cushions for the rest of your pillows and accessories. With that colour you could almost choose anything. You could also go very graphic with white - gray and black if you don't want any colour. Depends on your preference.

I don't mean choose all these cushions, I mean choose one style, get two and then draw from the colours in the one you select. :-)

Here are some inspiration pillows

I agree with Jayme that a larger rug would really make this area pop.

A large red or black, white, gray and red patterned rug would look really nice. Google black and red rugs and there are some amazing ones out there.

Here's a link I found with some nice looking rugs reasonably priced http://www.buy.com/th/5x7-contemporary-rugs.html

Here are some views for you. It's all a matter of personal taste and preference. I lean towards the white with gray geometric or the black gray stripe so you can change up your cushions any time, but you may prefer more colour and more contrast.

Consider the reds on the outside, then the two gray and white then the black and white in the centre for more balance

There's probably a big difference in our ages, hence you like more colour and I go for the more subdued :-) But that's what makes design so interesting.
