Accent Colors

Hello Everyone. Please meet my ho-hum living room.

It needs some serious intervention.

I have been thinking long and hard about a way to bring an accent color into our living room.... It's very difficult sometimes for me to "remove" myself from my own spaces and look at them objectively! I couldn't figure out what this room needed. Some green? More dark colors to make it cohesive? A bright pop of some color?

Well, one of the thoughts I had was to pull some of the color from our loveseat:

I really LOVE this loveseat. I don't know why, but the second I saw it sitting there in the thrift store I knew it had to be mine. It's from the 80s I believe, a Sears couch. Go figure.

There are some nice blues, greens, neutrals, browns, and even a lovely tangerine color in there! So, it gave me a lot of options for an accent color:

What's your favorite accent color? Is it one that's not even listed?

Just so you don't get mad when I do another post tomorrow, I already have chosen an accent color. I know, I'm a trickster. However, it occurred to me that it would be nice to hear your thoughts! So please, use the comment section and give me some brainstorming action!


  1. Loving tangerine right now. I wrote a post about it a few days ago. Looking forward to see what you've chosen.

  2. I'm finding myself voting for tangerine...even though that wouldn't normally be my decorating color of choice. I think a bright pop would be perfect. Can't wait to see what you do with it!!

  3. You can do whatever you want BUT i'm stealing those pillows ;)

    Hooray for a pop of color! Tangerine and blue would be super fun! Can't wait to see what you've chosen!!!
