What color do I pick for ottoman and rug?

KhaaneeDecember 11, 2013
I painted my walls before i got this sofa and loveseat and now I am not sure what color i should pick for the rug and ottoman. The sofa is sort of a pinkish cream. The walls are Benjamin Moore Ice Blue and Homestead Green. I am going for a beach sort of tropical look. My floors are a light beige ceramic, (lighter than in the picture). I am thinking of going with a chocolate or taupe rug with bright white ottoman. I have a brick fireplace that has pink and grey brick with a natural cedar wood mantel. I dont want to get the blue and pink look, although I like the paint and the sofa, (have to work with what i have), I need some advice to pull the room together. I can post more pics if needed. Thanks everyone for your thoughts!

I would go with a rug with some sort of design in it. Something with all your colors in it to bring it together. But i like the idea of the white (leather) ottoman.

Have you considered a pattern on the wall (wallpaper or fabric) that includes your colors and another you can use for an accent (via some fabulous throw pillows and an area rug perhaps). Upper left is a wide wallpaper border and lower left is fabric. Rest are wallcoverings, courtesy of http://RestorationFabricsandtrims.com.

Actually the wall here is for family photos. I am still organizing them. I am going with the white ottoman but still looking for a rug. I don't like busy or lots of pattern, so it will have to be a solid color. I am leaning towards gray. I will post a pic of the opposite wall.

A Tribal kilim rug & pillows would spice things up too, I am offering a good collection of colorful kilim rugs & pillows that would look great in this room. Check out my online store to have an alternative idea: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TurkishCraftsArts

I would stay in the grays for rug, a print a chevron or Ikat. Why is end table blocking part of the arm of sofa. Move sofa down, you have room. Go a 8x10 rug center in room.

Coffee table can be a ottoman, I would go fabric in a teal blue tones. Or a glass round or square.

I am thinking 8x10 rug. Would teal be too much blue?

I use the end table to put my tablet and drink there...lol that's why it is placed like that. I have a loveseat too and a crochet throw on teal green and white. I need to add another pic. This is the wall that faces the opposite side.
