What color to paint my bedroom and living room walls?



Reader’s question

"I would like to change the color on my bedroom and living room walls.

Bedroom: I have dark walnut with silver details furniture and purple lamp shade table lamps.

Living room: I have black leather sofa with dark grey throw pillows, throws in purple / black / gray color and black furniture with white details.”

Our recommendation


The dark shade of furniture is mitigated by the beige-pink shade or alternatively, by a light violet hue. Both colors blend harmoniously with purple color.

Black, gray and purple colors blend with the shade of gray with pops of red; all colors create a warm effect and the pure shade of gray highlights the purple color, which is the only warm color in the color scheme.
