Living room color help!
February 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
These are the pieces I'm pretty set on (I work at La-Z-Boy)


But I'm hesitant about the colors. I love the turquoise/aqua fabric for ONE of the pieces, but I don't know if I should do the sofa or the chair. I actually kind of like it more on the sofa... but I'm afraid to jump in with such a trendy color for a piece I'll be keeping for years.

Also, I have black and white curtains that I love and want to keep, and orange walls that came with the apartment that I've grown to like... And would also like to incorporate some other multi-color elements...

I currently have this rug

But it's seen better days, and I would like to replace it with a plush rug with similar colors... which i am having trouble finding.

Working at La-Z-Boy, I have access to rugs from surya, dalyn, and loloi, but havent found anything I'm in love with yet...

Also, I will definitely need throw pillows to tie everything together, any suggestions for colors or patterns?

Any suggestions overall?

Please go for the sofa - this is a lovely colour and works with what you have black and white and orange -
here is are designs that could inspire you (although they have an orange sofa)

The rug has got to go because of the pink in it - but clearly you are drawn to colour so go for it!!!

Thanks for the suggestions! I actually love the pink in the rug, and I think it adds another dimension to the colors. Personal opinion I guess haha

Would this rug work with your sofa? [houzz=

jump in with both feet. go for the beautiful turquoise sofa. it may not be nuetral but i wouldn't call it this color trendy. the lines are classic.if you tire of the bright colors you can paint the wall white and choose from any number of complimentary colors. i'd love to see it mixed with just B&W,cobalt and silver. of course turquoise and brown is classic. or yellow and white, chartreuse.
love the rug, wish you could get the same around on the pillows. go bold. no solids or animal prints. has just what you need
