Customer Question

Hi,
I have grey flooring and white trim. I have a black sofa, red accent chair, purple accent chair, a mirrored chest, and a zebra print rug. What color should I paint my walls?

Hi. This is never an easy choice because the wall will most likely outlast the furniture. You can consider a blue that is the substraction of the red from the purple but like in many case, i think that white is the best choice (especially that the zebra motif is on the floor and not on the wall) . Sand or kaki color could also look good as long as it is paler than the floor.

Hi, My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you. I see that you still have the question open so I wanted to ask you what kind of lighting do you have in the room? If there is a large amount of lighting from outside you could go with a darker color wall to match and bring out the floor as well as the red chair, purple chair and black couch. I would choose something such as in the photos below if there is a lot of lighting
