We have just finished painting my sitting room (Ben Moore Eye of the Tiger) and now need to furnish it. We live in New England and I would like to decorate this room with turquoise accent pieces and comfy seating. Any thoughts?

If you'd like teal, I'd just two accent chairs, then a neutral sofa you like in a similar style. But, what is your style?

You need to be careful about not creating a fire hazard if you put in curtains with that baseboard heater next to the door there. Maybe you could order some turquoise blinds instead.

Thank you for your thoughts. My style tends to hover between contemporary and transitional. For this room I am looking for something sunny, mood lifting to get me through these long New England winters :)

I would go beige couches and accent with turquoise cushions and throws.

Thank you! Anyone have any thoughts on an area rug maybe? I was thinking of doing any artwork with white frames also

Take a look at Ethan Allen's American Colors. They have a great turquoise that can be put on almost any wood piece. I've attached a photo of a room that is done in Ethan Allen. The yellow sofa may clash with your walls but the coffee table and the fabric on the chairs could be great for you.
