What goes with green?
Mon, 07-07-2008 - 10:31pm

Hello everyone, this is my first time at this board. My fiance and I just bought our first house, which we absolutely love. The living room has 6 windows and is full of beautiful natural light and has white carpet and a pastel green color for the walls. I love the color, and the previous owners had a purple couch which did work well in the room. However, we do not like the idea of a purple couch and did find an amazing affordable dark brown leather couch we want. With the couch we would also want darker end tables and a coffee table. I'm worried this won't work well with the room since it is so light. Any advice???

Welcome lmd03!

Congrats on the purchase of your first home. I'm sure you are thrilled. Nice to have the walls in a color you already like and green is a very relaxing color.

Well, green and brown are colors in nature and I consider them neutral colors along with your white rug. Nature is.......
