Gold and burnt orange cushions and accents (more orange than gold)

Jewell tones - burnt orange, velvet green, navy blue, gold accents. Lovely wallpaper

That's some fabulous wallpaper. You could have one or two dark navy blue bits to add depth.

The other walls are white and the floor is light wood planks so not dissimilar to the photos on the website

So I need to look for burnt orange or green I was thinking maybe some huge plants too
It give it a jungle vibe but no idea what I’m looking for !
I’ll try and google

Do you think a dark green sofa or dark blue sofa would be better than charcoal

Was thinking of going for velvet, because peopl in here have told me that actually cleans up better

I don't think charcoal would go as well as a rich colour...I think I'd have a dark blue. With burnt orange/ochre cushions and copper floor lamps?

Lovely wallpaper. I’d go for a green velvet sofa with that. And a green rug. Loads of plants.

O would get this lamp!

yeah I'd go for a green or navy sofa instead of charcoal too. Or even a golden/burnt orange one? I'm always a bit tempted to keep to a few colours but it can look a bit matchy matchy so bringing in some other rich jewel tones would be lovely.

What's the direction of the light through the window(s)? When will you mostly use the room? Is it self contained or do you walk through it?

Da fuck

Lots of different jewel colours - orange, green, purple, blue.

Lardlizard Tue 03-Mar-20 21:54:32

Oh that lamp is rather cool, I like that
Yeah I’m thinking maybe a dark
Green sofa, bmnot sure I’d be bold enough for a burnt orange one although I do love burnt orange

That is lovely!
Dark blue velvet sofa with gold and orange.

What kinda rig do you think ? I know it depends on the sofa and cushions etc but just general ideas

I sometimes think green can look like grass

I have a similar colour scheme

Midnight blue velvet sofa
Gold, orange, green and deep turquoise cushions
Yellow velvet armchair
Green throws
Green, gold and wood accessories.

SinglePringle Tue 03-Mar-20 22:08:32

I have a large off white rug.

SinglePringle Tue 03-Mar-20 22:09:34

I also have throws in orange and yellow. And plants. Lots of plants.

Dark (navy) blue velvet sofa would work so well with that wallpaper. Gold and burnt orange pops.

Rule is:
60 percent dominant colour (yours is green)
30 percent highlight colour (yours is black)
10 percent pop colour (burnt orange, gold)

Lardlizard Tue 03-Mar-20 23:02:04

Pringle I’d love to see pics of that

Doing home decor is so confusing !
