Brown Sectional

I have a sectional that is suede and chocolate brown leather.

I'm having trouble with what colors I could incorporate with it to not make it look so dull.

The couch is tan, cream and chocolate brown.

The above picture is similar to what my couch looks like.

A lot will depend on what else is going on in the room - are you looking to inject color or pattern?

Do you have a lot of other color or pattern already in the room?

The gorgeous fabric shown above gives you an idea of what your color scheme would look like if you added in a bright blue/turquoise color.

You could use this to give you a color palette from which to choose plain items or, if you don't have a lot of pattern in the room already perhaps you could consider making a few throw pillows for the couch which, in addition to some of the plain pillows you already have in shades of brown would look really good. If you can find a plain fabric in the same shade of blue and can add something to the room with that then even better.

As well as pillows, you may like to consider making a fabric wall panel which costs little and only takes a few minutes to put together but will bring all the colors you have together if you can find a fabric that incorporates them all.

One more thing... if it is more to your taste you can substitute bright pink for the blue as this also looks great with shades of brown.
