Want to Brighten up Living Room With new Sofa, but What Colour to go for?

Postby giisec1 » Thu Sep 07, 2017 12:26 pm

My living room is dark, my sofas are dark brown leather, the wooden furniture is sheesham, wooden floor is ligt oak with a deep red mat. I want to change the sofas to brighten the room, so the question is what colour sofas should I get? should I stick to a lighter shade of brown ie oatmeal, or would a light grey go ?

I'm for the light grey! Wood and grey match and are popular now, it looks modern but very cozy. Then, why don't you use a wallpaper? I mean, wood makes me think of mountains and if interiors are dark they seem small, such a wallpaper could brighten them and make them seem spacious!

With KaPi on this – light grey! Or even a cream colour would be nice, but it would be good to stick to one colour and incorporate different shades from that palette.
