Can’t decide... light green walls in living room; complimentary colours?

We have light green mint walls (similar to dulux lagoon falls) in our living room and I keep changing my mind over colour scheme of soft furnishings... the lampshade is a blush pink, photo frames are rose gold and bronze. I kind of started with them first. I like the idea of grey and blush pink but then I feel maybe it needs more stronger colours (maybe a lavender or jewel green).

Anyone have similar? Or what would you go for?

I think with that kind of green you can't go wrong with grey, blush pink, navy or mid grey and bronze/gold x

Yes to pink - love pink and green together! Maybe a deeper dusty pink?

Yes to pink and emerald green sounds lovely as a disrupter colour. There's a lovely blogpost here with lots of green inspiration, I particularly like the dark green chest of drawers in the bedroom.

I've recently decorated the DDs room and while the walls are white they have Marimekko curtains in a psychedelic pattern in strong greens and pinks so we have green duvet covers and cushions and fab pink chairs. Considering doing the sitting room in a muted version of the same colour scheme. I'm really loving green at the moment.

@CountFosco Thanks for the blog link.

Be warned, I spent the first week of lockdown reading all the old posts on that blog, it's full of great inspiration.

I’d go for rusty orange.

Thank you for the link! @CountFosco
Thank you all; I love blush pink so think that will definitely be in the scheme! Off to have a look at this blog... ☺️
