I need help with complementary colors and fabric.

I have a beautiful teal/turquoise couch and teal/turq. 18 ft. curtains in the living room. I need a rug in that room and was thinking of gray. I don't want a teal/turq. overload. I have 2 brown leather chairs in that room and a dark wood curio cabinet. I don't want to do brown. Brown isn't my favorite color. The adjoining room is the kitchen/dining and the paint is a citron green. I also need window treatments in that room but don't want anything heavy. I could use some advise, please.

Stick to neutrals for the rug.....maybe a large cowhide with brown and white...no turquoise.

I would do cream/ivory/light yellow or gray.

Style your bookcases with 1/3 books, 1/3 decor items and 1/3 open space. Is that a cowhide in front of the bookcase?

Beige in general color with hints of your main colors from both rooms - the rug will tie it all together:)

these are closer to the colors that I have in there now. The sample on the bottom right with the black bean soup(which would be my dark leather chairs, and the white marble being my white 6 ft. tall wainscoting. The couch is a chesterfield sofa in "peacock" . I have a "brindle" cowhide rug already, but want a larger area rug that would cover the entire floor. I like the overlaid look of rugs. http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/captivatingteal
