I'm in to blues and silver at the moment but have a huge terracotta sofa. Other than throw to cover it as a solution or reds and browns , what colour scheme could you have?

No reason you couldn't use blue with it, probably wouldn't add any silver though.

Damask rose and bronze
Background of rich cream.

Still toying with ideas but thanks!

Blue and terracotta sound lovely.

I think a forget-me-not shade would go well

Can you post a photo?

a turquoise blue shade maybe , but my fav with terracotta is pink.

Update: went with a completely different look! Ended up with cranberry and greenish colours in the curtains and now looking for a throw for the sofa. Picture looks horrible!

Sounds nice though! I'm guessing you're going to pick out for the throw whatever colour in the curtains that you want to be dominant?

Might make sense to emphasise the cranberry link and go with a pink?

moonlight I've got 2 of these cushions so was thinking on neutral throw?

Oh, yes, that would make sense - you could make the throw the same as the background on the curtains / wall, or a tone in between? The only risk there is your cushions becoming too much of a focus though/

Lots of throws here, if you haven't picked one yet.

moonlight I agree and thanks for the website!! Hopefully will find something on there as I'm fed up with lookinggrin

Still can't decide! Now looking for a rug too...

Hmm - maybe pick out one of the greens from the curtains for the rug? Or, you could go with a light green throw and a darker green rug? You'd probably want the cushions to be a shade of green as well then though.
