Are you wondering about a paint color? What about white? I know it sounds so basic, but I think it might work in this room now.

I would consider painting the walls the smokey blue in the floral print of the chair and sofa pillows. The light minty green looks too weak with your furniture and fabrics. A deeper sage green would also work. Add a jute area rug to add warmth and texture and tie the furniture together. We don't have enough information to see what the furniture arrangement could be from the images you posted. But you will need a small table next to the chair if it is separated from the sofa, sofa side table and a coffee table or ottoman. Can the chair fit to the let side of the sofa with a table and lamp in the corner? My guess is that the seating arrangement is facing a TV or fireplace.

The couch is beautiful. I think by replacing the flowered pillows with white or a white throw, and changing the curtain color to white would tie the room together.

Hi Debra, While abbyjean is focusing on your curtains, I'm wondering about your pillows! You bought a cute set there, but if you can change out the sofa pillows to some,that,coordinate but aren't an exact match, you will get a more relaxed and interesting look in your room.

Pulling the colors for your room from the arm chair means you will be working with the triad of green/yellow/blue. Since you like the green wall color (I assume?), maybe focus on blue, as well as neutrals and textures, for your pillow and accent colors.

The pillows below are all from Pier One. I'm not 100% sure if going into these teals will work since I can't tell exactly what shades of blue are in that floral pattern. If there is just a hint of teal, or blue-green, in any part of that pattern, then teal will work.

Here are some more pillow ideas - first two are from Wisteria and are on sale right now. Second two are Crate & Barrel, and would bring on some texture.

After reading the above discussion about your wall color, I'm not clear on whether you would like to try one more time,to change it? Are you sticking with this green color?

I like the furniture. What was your objection to trying a blue grey like the flowers? Take a pillow into the paint store and they can match the color. I would perhaps do the very lightest grey in the center of the flower petals. I thing that might look good with the stone.

I love the furniture. Have you seen Sherwin William's ivoire? It is a cream that leans toward a warm yellow. It may be too close to the sofa color. I have it every where on my ground floor.

Debra, I suggest you go with a wheat or pale gold here - it will pull the highlight shade from your stone wall,it will meld with the adjoining space, and it will make the room feel brighter and larger by absorbing some of the sofa's visual mass. The photo below is SW torchlight, but should be taken as a general example - before you paint your walls yet again, try uploading your photos to either BM or SW to test some colours, and then bring samples home to test on the walls over the course of a day to see how you like the tones in different light.

If you look at your chair, it has all the colors you are asking about, just in different hues. I think it is cool how studio 10001 showed your room with a golden hue. If you google Shewin Williams ivoire and torchlight you can see other rooms done with those colors. I highly suggest spending money on a paint sample. I had SIX for my guest bedroom. My husband thought I was nuts, but he only had to paint the room once!

I'm always learning here. I LOVE yellow, but I thought the wall color should contrast with the sofa. But studio has pointed out that in a small room, having the sofa and walls the same color (or almost) would diminish the visual bulk of the sofa. Thx for expanding my horizons!

Debra, I too like studio's suggestion for doing a soft wheat color in your room - something you can pull from the stone colors.

I looked at the SW Torchlight that studio suggested. It is quite orange (and bright!) as you can see below. Next two colors are the two shades lighter on the paint strip. It doesn't start looking yellow until you get to Inviting Ivory, the lightest color. So I think we are on the right track but maybe not there yet?

And as anyone of us will advise - it's really hard to recommend colors because,of monitors not showing true, and just not being right there in the room.

What is your preferred paint brand, Debra?

And I assume you want to keep the lavender since it is working,so well. Is there a logical spot where you are changing colors then? And exact name of the lavender would help, plus a pic or two of that room.

Where I'm going g with this is the two rooms can be different colors,but should still flow. The lavender in the other room should be the same degree of lightness of darkness as the new color for this room. This is what hue is, which you were asking about. Most if the lavender is a soft pastel, this room should be equally as soft, maybe more greyed out than pastel though.

Study Crate and Barrel catalog, they are genius at using vintage era of your house with modern furniture. Note: you can have paint mixed in pint sizes to sample. This is new used to have to buy pint or the little jrs. #1 Problem is classic mistake...the furniture does not fit the space. Why this mistake is made so often is because that is how furniture stores merchandise and design and price. U must learn to chose outside the sets. Maybe you could switch with another room. Can you return the chair? It really does not matter what color u paint till this is solved.

If you remove the pink sheers at the front door and keep the white trim consistent throughout for continuity, your foyer can provide the transition between the two palettes you have created - viewers do not see both spaces simultaneously.
Allow me to re-clarify: I am not suggesting Torchlight. Exact paint shades should be chosen at the store w your fabric samples in hand - naming the shade in the photo I sent you is only useful as a starting point at the sample rack, and is not a recommendation in any other sense. We can not pick exact colours for you over the internet, and I am suggesting the colour you see, not the name of the colour you see - they are two different things.

We just bought a 1928 Spanish and the rooms are so small. All the furniture made today is soooo big. But, Debra, I think your choices are great. Just change out the pillows ( solid on the chair and sofa), shop at the discount stores too. Better prices, save your receipts. Maybe a rectangle, low pillow on the chair the color of the sofa will tone down the flower aspect. I like the painting over the chair! You gotta mix thing up a bit!

Debra,
You have a charming home (I grew up in one). I have a newer home and I'm replacing the smaller baseboard with the wider board like you have! I also have the same challenge with a similar color couch.
It's easy to stop liking your decorating ideas when they don't come together easily.
I think one problem you can easily solve is too many colors. First, remove the clutter and look at the room with all your basic pieces. Work with the chair and pillows you have. Buy the $3-4 sample colors (Home Depot and Menards will custom mix them) and paint them on a very large piece of cardboard or paneling, so that it covers the space behind the couch and between the windows. Look at each color throughout the day and in your evening lighting. I think the suggestions of the lighter (not too light) blue-grey in the pillows or a light wheat might the best first tries. Stay away from pastels.
You might want to consider painting the doors and trim the same color (again, put the large samples in front of the doors after you paint the room, then decide if you want monochromatic or white.) Don't change the baseboard color, but paint the ceiling trim the same color as the walls to give the illusion of little more height.
The stone wall is a little overpowering for a small room. I would put floor-to-ceiling bookcases in each corner flanking the stove, painted the same color as the walls. Will provide needed storage and give illusion of higher ceiling. If skill/finances allow, you might want to remove the brickwork and replace with the stones where bookcases could then be slightly recessed.
If you like the picture, put it in another room and bring in one that unites your color scheme.
I also think a small area rug is an excellent idea, but not sure what color until you have the room painted a color you like.
It also looks like you have 3 doorways/entrances to the room. Can you eliminate one or two of them? If one of the doors is to a closet, can you remove the door, paint the closet the same color as the room, and turn it into an interesting, useful space? Or seal and drywall the doorway and have it open into another room? Do you need to enter the room from two directions?

So here is your Frosty Morning from the other room. Next to it is Ben Moore Cream Froth, which darkens to an amber/orange tone. Next to Cream Froth is a B Moore color called Thinder. I chose it to represent the tones of your stone and the grout. The last color is S-W Inviting Ivory, which is the lightest color on the paint strip that had the Torchlight color rep suggested by studio1001.

When I look at these colors, the Cream Froth seems,to be quite harmonious with the lilac and COULD work with your sofa, but here is where you will need to do so e experimenting and be the judge.

You are right - the accessories and pics etc. normally (but not always) come,last. We should get that wall color down so we,will know where to go on other things. But staying in these gold/Ivory tones will be very harmonious,with the stone, and the teal will make a very nice accent color.

I wouldn't focus on accent colors yet. A very light splash of teal might work in accessories on shelves, etc but in pillows it would probably clash with your floral pattern, but I could be wrong. If you have TJX, Marshalls, or Home Goods near you, shop there. They have a very friendly return policy, so I buy home decor all the time and look at it for several weeks sometimes before I decide whether or not to return.

Debra, I don't see grey working because the color isn't in the arm chair print. Yes, it is in the stone, but the stone is more neutral than the floral pattern. It would be better to pull your colors from the chair,colors. Doesn't have to be the exact colors - just the tones. So you are looking at yellows, blues or greens.

Debra, Here is Gentle Sky, as well as Viking. Both would be way too bright and "baby room blue". If you go much lighter and more greyed out, like the third pic (Ben Moore Whirlpool) you would be getting something harmonious with the lavender color. I think it would be too greyed out for the cheery colors of your sofa and arm chair though.

Oh, I thought the center of the green flowers on the chair was gray. That is how it looks on my Ipad. What color is it?

Oh, I see it is now that you have posted the picture. This is tricky. I would paint a white poster board and hold it up to your chair and stone. Nothing like seeing it in the room. I do like the gray with the lavender but perhaps that golden cream would be a better choice. I like big samples held against a white background. I agree those blues are too strong.

I have read everything each person has posted and have taken it very serious. I was up all night looking at colors, so much so they started to all look the same. I have post it notes all over with every single color that you have all mentioned. You have to take into consideration that decorating comes natural to most of you. I see that by your posts and pictures. But to some it takes a bit. I had no issues with my other room. But now I have become stuck and if I didn't value and believe in your choices I would not be here. Times have changed and so have colors. Things that did not go well together in the past now go together extremely well. Let's face it everything in your home is about color and matching. Please keep sending me ideas and your thoughts. I feel like this site has become a teaching and learning site. And can't wait to see more. Years ago do you ever recall someone painting there rooms the same color as there furniture. Nope we used white for everything. The only porch colors we used was battleship grey. If anyone can relate to this. This is actually kind of hard. So bare with me.

Debrah, I am glad to hear you have been looking at some new possibilities. I suggest that you take a cushion and photo of the fireplace to the paint store and pick up some samples, more reliable than these monitor images, with the help of a SW rep. You may also be a good candidate for an in home colour consult - a bargain compared to wasted paint selections.

It is a small room with not a lot of natural light. Plus the stone will suck up a lot of light. My preference would be for the Ivoire or something similar. But studio's rendition with the blue is pretty and if you wanted a cozy, den-like feel, you could go darker like this.

Whatever color - wheat or grey, it will be very important that it work with the stone. Whatever you choose it will need to be "greyed out" and not so "cutesy" like the the mint green. The color should be a background and not jump out at you

Yes, that was a coffee table (that doesn't exist yet :)). If you could float the sofa in the room with about 30""behind it, you will have a passageway behind it. Or float it with just enough room to swing open a door behind it, plus a few extra inches. If the 14' part of the dimensions is running from the stone wall over to the basement door wall, it makes me think you could place the sofa about 11' away from the stone wall (facing the stove) and make it work.

But from a visual (aesthetic) perspective, floating it facing toward the window is better. This way, when you walk into the room you see the welcoming sofa next to the stove. The other way, you would see the back of the sofa which isn't so pretty. But you do what you have to do!

Your room dimensions are quite decent. There should be a way to float that sofa away from the walls.

The chair can't go there if the stove is going to be there lol! If it wasn't for the TV, you could put the chair in that corner by the window. But the TV needs a spot.

And just thinking it through a bit, in order to watch the TV in that corner, you would be facing the window which means you will need some blinds on the window, or something to keep,the glare out.

Debra,
Is this the vase you mean? It's very pretty - looks like it,would go with pretty much anything. You have very good taste!

The pillows are inexpensive. Abbyjean is right - all things considered, paint is cheap. It's too bad you had to go through so many trials, and I'm surprised you didn't get a bit of guidance from the paint store.

For future reference, don't even bother looking at the pastels and the bold colors on the paint boards. Go straight to those more greyed out colors, usually toward the bottom of the boards. These are the softer colors that are easier on the eye.

We haven't talked about curtains either! ,maybe we'll give you a break while you paint lol!

Rather than placing samples directly on the wall, try using poster board, so that you can move the sample around and see it in different areas of the room and in different lights. I urge you to bring home paint cards before buying sample cans - you will be able to weed out many shades without having to make a sample board. Concentrate only on the stone wall and upholstery currently in the room to gauge what will work best. The rest can be dealt with after.

I totally second what studio just said!

I think it was me who said I didn't think Gray would work because it is t in your pillows. I probably shouldn't have said that because there are so many shades (tints) of Gray that many grays will I. Fact work. The Gray Owl you are considering, for example, is maybe not a true Gray, but it is a grated-out color. You will see a lot of green in it, though, in a room. And the co,or of the furniture you add changes the co,or so much. P,us the light coming I to the room.,,,it's. O wonder you have tried five times to get the perfect color!

So, as studio warned, bring home,lots of paint chips. Carry them around holding them up to things. You will see that some colors fight a bit with certain colors in the room. Others will look very pleasing.

I think I was picturing something like the grays below when someone suggested or asked about Gray. I was probably not thinking that through entirely!

I know I am late to this party, but I think you should find a paint swatch to match the blue in the pillows, and then use the same color, but lighter. Not pastel light, but light. Yellow/gold and blue are a classic. I really dislike the thought of grey for this room, it just ignores the charm of the print fabric.

Debra, your accents are going to cut into that effect - considerably. Your plans for new artwork and cushions will stand out more, and you have the option of adding white drapery which will play up the new chair more, as well. The idea is to let the wall colour support additional choices, and maintain as much spaciousness as possible. Head toward light versions for comparison, if these leave you uncertain.

I am so lost what you are looking for at this point it isn't funny. Do you like any of the suggestions anyone has made? If so, go buy those little sample jars that every brand carries and try them out. You are really the only one that can see how the colors look in your house. The monitors distort colors. If you find some you like, paint some poster boards with the color and place them around your room.

The Fire Marshal came out to check the area. He stated the sofa can stay out in the room. I like it like that. But that would mean no coffee table as the measurements are not enough space from the fire. So i either move the sofa back or forget about a table. What a Disaster this has become. Instead of getting better it's just gets worse.

my vote is filtered sunlight. It would pick up the mortar in your stone wall, but be a bit brighter, and match your couch AND go with your floor, another important element. I also suggest using a primer. It's a cheap way to mask the green, easier than sanding and cleaning. Don't paint the walls white or use plain white primer. Get the paint store to tint the primer close to the color of the paint you choose. Then you can do just one coat of paint.

The reason I suggest poster board is so you can view the colors in different parts of the room, next to the fireplace, near the window, over near a doorway that has a view of he connecting room. Also, you need to look at the colors during different times of the day. That is really the easiest way to do it in the long run. And I agree, get primer tinted.

Debra, Regarding the coffee table situation, studio1001 is right - you can just use two nesting tables or side tables as your coffee table. And if they are made of metal or other non-combustible materials, you will be fine.

Here are a few possibilities - all metal from Crate & Barrel, metal and bone inlay tile from West Elm, and ceramic drum stool from World Market.

karemore55
Do you mean aqua as in teal for the decor? So, you are probably going to go with a couple of the Pier One pillows? Because, the more colors you have to consider, the easier it will be to choose your wall color - believe it or not! You can then hold your paint chips, or painted poster board up to a little grouping of the sofa pushed up to the stone wall (temporarily), with the chair nearby and a couple of the teal pillows on the sofa.

You can then stand back and take it all in, and it will be more obvious what is or isn't working.

I still lean toward Ivoire or something quite creamy and muted (earthy, if that makes sense!) to harmonize with the stone, yet allow the colors to pop.

Let us know once you have a few samples painted and you could show us this little vignette.

Hi Debra, I had a go at trying to paint your room using the Sherwin Williams app. Very clumsy attempts, let me tell you! However, I tried the Kilim Beige that Margo suggested a ways back, along,with Buckram Binding which is similar, plus Classic ?Ivory. Looking at the three (and these aren't perfect representations), I'm wondering if these warmer neutrals are the way to go -'Kilim Beige or Buckram Bimding or similar. Mother look like the color of peanuts to me!

So I'll post the colors, as well as the lousy paint job, for you to mull over. Kilim is first, Buckram is second.

You can arrange the pillows any way you want. There is no "right way!" But it looks good. If you prefer symmetry, do the aqua on the ends, then the gold, and the white lumbar pillow right in the center. The way you have it is more casual. Symmetrical would be more formal.

You could even put one of the floral print pillows in place of one of the aqua, then put the aqua one on the chair...

Would something like these below appeal to you - both from World Market?

And, keep in mind that art does not have to match a room exactly - it should "suit" the room in terms of the mood/look you wish to evoke, and some of the colors should pick up on key colors in the room. But, exact matches usually look kind of cookie-cutter.

I also just wanted to take a moment to TY all of you that have spent so much time helping me with your expertise, thoughts and ideas. You have help me very much. I Love doing these projects but as you can clearly see it takes me much longer. Who would ever think that so many different colors go with this and that. Who also would ever think that people use 10 throw pillows on there beds and sofa's. Growing up we lucky if we used one throw pillow. I have learned from all of you that the ideas are endless.

Aw, Debra, that is so sweet of you to say that! You are so very welcome!

And, yes, love that dish - it looks quite unique. I suppose you're going to tell me it's Pier One? Because it looks like a one-of-a-kind?

No I have to get it yet. I need one that is a bit smaller as there won't be enough room between the fire stove and table.

Debra, They have nice stuff and I get emails from them daily with all their specials, but I'm in Canada and the cost of shipping would not make it worth ordering from them.

But I can admire what other people buy from them!

Hi, I have the same set, but in the teal not the goldenrod. My walls are mustard. When I bought this set, everyone thought I was crazy! But now I see it popping up on Houzz. :)

Good luck with your project, the folks here are great.

I too was worried when we purchased the furniture. The colors scared me. My company loves it, They love it because of all the help i recieved on here matching it. The chair i dislike. I would have liked something different. I am going to try and sell it.

What would you consider these? Vintage maybe?

Hi Debra, Are those canisters? They are very cute, and would suit your 100 year old home very well. (I think you said it was 100 yrs. old?). I wouldn't call them vintage, as the motifs in the background are African and Indian - part of that global look that is huge right now.

I would call them "shabby chic" myself. Although, the idea of cannisters is from that era that we now call vintage, isn't it?

Are these for your kitchen then, or do you have another use for them?

And, did you ever find that bowl from One Kings Lane?
