I’m looking for some help. We recently moved into our new house and decorated the living room but we kept the original karndean flooring and haven’t managed to pick curtains. We have some burnt orange and red lamps and accessories and our sofa is camel and walls are pale olive and we have an Asian inspired wallpaper. The problem is we really don’t know what to do about our carpet and curtains, whether they should be bold colours or more muted? We really like the Thai/Asian look but are struggling to make this shine through. Any help would be massively appreciated.
I am having trouble supplying pictures but will keep trying
With flooring colour choices i always go for contrast i.e if you have dark walls then go for the opposite on the carpet. Also, get a flooring colour that's in the same type of range/family as your curtains and lamps ect.
Hey Bulzer, don't you think that using light color on walls & using dark color rugs & curtains would look more beautiful. Since, most probably people use decorative items in dark color like photo frames, etc.. Additionally, you can choose light color sofa to give a contrast look to your floor and room.
