This is for my living room. My carpets are a beige with a sort of mushroom fleck. I want teal/green/duck egg as the main colour. Could it work or do I need to either change colour choice of sofa (it is a light silvery grey) or change the carpet?

I have a beige carpet and a teal sofa and while waiting for an additional sofa to arrive, I've put a silver velvet chair in the room. It looks OK. I've put teal and purple cushions on the chair so it links in with the other colours in the room.

Grey/ silver velvet!

Great thanks. I was just worried that the beige and grey would not work together.

In my last house I had a beige carpet with a grey/mushroom sofa and teal cushions etc. It looked fine!

Some greys are more bluey and some are more beige-y/mushroom-y/taupe-y.

Look for the warmer greys. We got ours from Multi York - they were really good about lending us quite large swatches to take home with us. In fact the one I thought would go in store didn't go at all and another one did.

Thank you all. I'll get some samples.
