With a color that dark on the floor, I would stick with a neutral for your walls. Try a shade of tan or gray. Is your home decorated in a certain fashion (i.e. Victorian, Contamporary) ? You could always try light, light hunter with bright white trim.

Color

Depending on what color your furniture is, you might try using a color that would coordinate with the pieces you have in there. We used a rose shade in our LR. We have hardwoods and a hunter green area rug that has rose colored flowers on it. Our couch also has slight rose accents.

If you choose a color you already have, it will accent and bring any shade of that color to your attention when you walk into the room.

Have fun!

Color Help

Hi Lisa,

I teach decorating classes and I have a decorating with color chapter that may help you with your color dilemma. It's free and available at : http://www.roominakit.com/SeminarsWo...olorBasics.htm

I know that selecting colors is really hard and intimidating at times but I find that my students feel much more confident after learning the color basics.

If you have any questions I would be happy to help. Simply send me an email.

You may also want to try software to get a visual of what the room would look like with different colors of paint. I love using Ultimate Home. You can take a digital photo or a scanned copy and modify it in real time. So you can get a real good idea of which colors are best in relation to your carpet. The software is readily available at Best Buy.

Best of Luck,
Carmen

Choosing colors

Pick a color from an area rug or upholstery that will coordinate with the hunter. This will tie in everything and everything will settle into place. For example, you have a piece of upholstery, rug, or accessories that has a bit of rose or burgundy, tan, or other color that you like, use that color as a wall color if you are looking for something special to set off your decor and tie it all together. This color can be picked up in accessories, fabrics, or rugs in another room to carry the color throughout the home.
