Pulling The Room Together

Justine wrote:

Hi! I have been struggling with the colors for my family room right off the kitchen. It's very small-more of a hearth room. We painted the walls a very light gray color. Our sofa and chair are a microfiber tan. The fireplace and doors that lead to the deck are an oak/honey color. I need to pull the room together with a rug, pillows and drapery panels but I seem to be stuck on what colors/prints to go with. Printed curtains and solid rug or the other way around…? Pillows to tie everything together? Accessories? I am kind of paralyzed by indecision at the moment.

Please help!

Since you have a neutral cool color on the walls mixed with neutral warm colors in the furniture and wood, I’d suggest bringing in a strong cooler shade to bring them together and make the space feel more up to date.  You could go with any shade that is your favorite but once you decide make sure that color appears in subtle ways throughout the space.  I'd recommend a geometric patterned rug with some white in it to bring that color to the floor, solid textured drapes with a colorful band or accent and some personality packed throw pillows and accessories to bring in a little whimsy.  

Hope that helps and happy decorating!
