Q.  I want to decorate my living room. It has dark hardwood floors and I bought a couch (olive color) but I want some ideas for my coffee table and a chair. What are the best colors to combine with that couch and with the dark hardwood floors? Thank you!!

A. Whenever you are purchasing a significant piece of furniture (sofa or chair), you might consider choosing a neutral color and pattern. Go with something that you can live with for years to come and allow your creativity to be expressed in selecting the accessories. Because your room sounds fairly dark, you might consider a lighter chair in a khaki or taupe to go along with the olive colored sofa. You might also consider upholstered pieces for your coffee table or a large ottoman. By doing this, you are adding texture and color to your room, as well as a piece of furniture that can be used for seating or a coffee table. Do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation – good luck!
