Did you lighten the paint with white at all? It looks lighter compared to other pictures of the same paint color.

I have white sofa pale grey walls with accents of aqua and green - who is manufacturer of the side chairs or name of material? As grey is hard to match, I found a real shaggy rug with mixes of white & aqua as it looked better on light maple floors. They also had other colors.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Twenty Scintillating, Sculptural Light Fixtures
I featured this home in a Houzz Tour yesterday, and I cannot get this Bubbles Glass Chandelier by Solaria Home out of my mind. It's definitely one to save your pennies for if you have the right spot for it!
Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: A Brooklyn Row House Renovation
The row house was built in 1863 and is located in Brooklyn’s historic Boerum Hill neighborhood. The clients are special friends of Brendan's (he and the husband have known each other since childhood). This made the stakes high. "These are clients whom I love dearly,” he says. “I worked very hard to make this house a home for them." This room is the parlor, where Brendan and Erin preserved the historic details but added modern touches. Note how the mirror reflects light, practically making it an extra window.
Debbie Snider added this to Cozy Contemporary Living Spaces
You might not think of blue gray as a cozy color, but here it is balanced with soft coral and yellow accents. It works in this room with historical details: dramatic moldings, wonderfully textured ceiling tiles, and an arched ornamental fireplace. Natural light and a greenery view come through the tall windows and are reflected in the mirror.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to Rooms I'd Like to See Wrapped Up as Gifts for the Holidays!
This classically beautiful living room has a creative edge and would be a remarkable space to relax in. I am drawn to its calming color palette, high ceilings, view out the front windows and the chic collection of furniture.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to Bold and Beautiful Upholstery
This remarkable living room is one of my favorite seen on Houzz. Two vintage chairs covered with a lively zigzag print adds a great element of style and surprise to the design. Which of these patterned upholstery pieces would you welcome into your home? Next: Browse more home design photos
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Spring Forecast: Dare to Love Peach Again
Though the dominate color in this room is a bluish-gray, I chose to highlight it because it gave me inspiration for my home office. My walls are the same color (ICI Dulux Souvenir #A1928) and the flirty touches of peachy coral will add the perfect touch of femininity in the space.
Lily Gahagan added this to Everything's Coming Up Coral
Coral pink gets picked from Schumacher's Chiang Mai Dragon fabric used on the sofa pillows and dots the rest of the room through well-placed throws and a happy bouquet of flowers.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Bubble Design Celebrates Fun
Light fixtures are dominating the world of bubble design. The Bubbles Glass Chandelier is as whimsical as it is visually engaging.
KitchenLab | Rebekah Zaveloff Interiors added this to 6 Great Places for a Natural Fiber Rug
3. Modern and eclectic living rooms. This is one of my favorite rooms on Houzz. In this setting with a mix of vintage style upholstered furniture and a whimsical chandelier juxtaposed against traditional architecture, I can't imagine anything other than a natural fiber rug to tie the space together.
The Home Editor: City & Small Space Consulting added this to Ikat Patterns: Forgiving and Unforgettable
A pair of unusually shaped armchairs are showstoppers when covered in Duralee's ikatlike Seaglass pattern.
Laura Gaskill added this to Pick-a-Paint Help: How to Quit Procrastinating on Color Choice
Know which hues are easier to work with. If you've had bum luck choosing paint colors in the past, it could be that you were making things harder on yourself than was necessary. Some colors, like pink, are especially difficult to get just right. Neutral hues like gray, beige and soft browns, as well as pale, silvery blues are quite forgiving. This room: Coventry Gray
Eco+Historical, Inc. added this to Modern Lighting Gives Traditional Homes a Twist
This playful bubble glass chandelier adds a very contemporary detail to an otherwise very traditional space — from the old marble fireplace mantel to the heavy and detailed window and door trim, to the pressed-tin ceiling and cove details. And yet it really works. Combined with the bamboo, Asian-style mirror and the midcentury bench and chair, the lighting contributes to a very eclectic and current interior design.
Fred Albert added this to The Case for In-Between Colors
There are a warmth and softness to this gray (Benjamin Moore's Coventry Gray) that belie any associations we might have with that color.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Ditch the Rules but Keep Some Tools
Has this been an exhaustive treatise on rules and tools? Clearly not. Many other designers have lots to say on the issue. And I've not even touched on the importance of laughing a little — of not taking the process too seriously! (Another ideabook, perhaps.) Let me leave you with this striking room, with its use of all five tools. We have balance and equilibrium provided by the repetition of pairs of chairs and lamps. The wonderfully "other" chandelier sets the stage for the mix of styles, colors and periods. Varying scale is accomplished by the placement of the low-backed chairs and sofa in such a high-ceilinged space. And the undressed windows provide that oh-so-critical place where the eye can rest. The fireplace, with its statement mirror, shines as the focal point, putting a decisive bow on this great example of how to utilize basic tools to create personal, warm and inviting rooms.More: Feel Free to Break Some Decorating Rules
