I reupholstered the bench, bought the mirror - what color now?

Couple of weeks ago I was asking a similar question but the benched looked different and there was an art on the wall above the bench. I am thinking of warm white for the wall ( my other walls are terracotta and yellow, can be seen in the reflection in the mirror) so mirror would not completely blend with the wall. I don't want grey until I will be strongly convinced otherwise. Can you think of some other color that would look good?

Just go lighter with the terracotta…the lightest color in the pillows.

The mirror is not the right accent for the sofa…too big, hung too low and the wrong style.

Mirror too low. But you knew that? Add pillows mix it up.

Ones you have not working and too big. Get various size and shape. Use white, and print with color from seat.

I agree with mirror being wrong style go a tall vertical silver like on bench. Art decor look. Google

Thanks, mirror is not hung at that moment, it is just sitting on top of the bench to shape my opinion.

If it is just the one wall behind the bench, I would go green;)

NIce color Margo, excellent choice! I also think a teal w/ lots of black in it could looking striking. Here's BM Slate Teal

Funny Amy, I was debating between a few colors before hitting the copy button and one was very similar;) All depends how bold mrsfrida wants to go...

awww ladies, you are great. I love both, but really teal with orange and yellow? Won't that look like legos?

I am sorry, I just thought it might be too many primary colors in one room. I love the colors you suggested though.

I remember you now, mrsfrida. I even found the old Photoshops. I admire your daring. If you want to use a mirror in the entry, the one you have isn't it. This one might be though:

That mirror is too big and (I never thought I'd say this on Design Dilemma) it's hung too low. Just not the right piece for the bench.

I would vote for art to replace the mirror. Then you've solved two problems--no need to paint wall just reposition mirror to another spot. All from etsy.
