What goes with olive green sofa?

I am going to be moving and buying a new house. I have two olive green sofas. I have no idea what color palette would look best...can anyone make some suggestions? We definitely want a warm, comfortable living room.
Thanks!

I'm terrible with colors too LOL but I just wanted to throw out a website that I found last night that's a lot of fun and very addictive!

Welcome quirkycrab!


I bet you can't wait to move into your new house? Good for you!


What I would do is get something for inspiration that has olive green in it and other colors, like some toss pillows like this: http://www.starlinen.com/product_images/81367XX298_olive.jpg


Then pull one of the other colors in it for your wall color. You can see olive green goes well with many colors.


What color carpet are you getting? Are you having wood floors? A area rug with olive green and other colors might be nice to pull

I had 2 olive green couches myself last year, and I paired it up with maroons, browns, very natural colors. It was a contemporary modern look, but I think it was warm and inviting. Ha. I don't have the couches anymore, but I'm still lovin' the olive green and natural colors. A creamy off white looks good too. Hope that helps. :)
