Lounge Colours

Bold Bright Pink Fabric

Bold Bright Pink Fabric


My lounge is painted a light beige, the sofa is beige too.

I have some grey cushions and some beige with different shades of brown.

The curtains are a mixture of grey, beige, greens and pinks.

I would like to change the colour but have no idea of mixing colours.

Thank you for your help.

Hello again Joanne,

It looks to me that the best option would be to choose one of the brighter colors that you already have - pink or green - and make that a more definite accent color.

Is there a shade of pink or green already used in the curtains that you like?

I'm assuming that the curtains are quite highly patterned as you mention grey, beige, green and pink are included so it may be best to avoid additional pattern and go for bold solid color.

If it were my living room I would find a shade of pink in the curtain material (the brighter the better for me!) and go with that. I would paint one wall in that pink - if that is too colourful for you, you could use a smaller area like an alcove for example - and I would also find a plain fabric in that color and make a few do it yourself cushion covers in the plain pink fabric.

If this all sounds a bit too much for your style you can of course choose a shade of green or even a rich chocolate brown would be good if that is more to your taste.
