If I am painting my living room walls orange, what color furniture and accessories should I use?

Orange is a beautiful color for the walls. It's a "hot" color, so you may want to cool it down with softer greens, camel, ivory and browns. To keep things lively, use it's complement of blue and trim with white. Gray and white is a great, up-to-date color scheme with orange.

First thing - The way to easily achieve a cohesive appearance in your home isn't to select a paint color first then hope that you can find other things to work with it.

Begin with a patterned fabric for a chair, upholstered headboard, draperies or pillows - or from a beautiful rug that you love - then pull colors out of the pattern/rug for use on other pieces: Your sofa, pillows, bedding - and finally your specific wall color.

I completely agree with bepsf and always tell my clients that we'll chose the wall colors last as nothing is cheaper and easy to find than paint! But sometimes, just like when you find an amazing piece of fabric that inspires the entire room, you just want what you want--and I think gtfoxx wants orange walls. We all want to see pictures when you're done!
