Tangerine, when you choose a bold, vivid paint shade like tangerine for your living room walls, coming up with a complementary color scheme for the rest of the room can be difficult. Depending on the accent colors you choose, you can make the tangerine look even more vibrant or tone the wall color down for a more subdued effect. It's not only the accent shades that matter, though. Deciding where and how much of each accent color to use plays a big role in your living room's look too. The first step in choosing accents for the living room is deciding what your main accent shade will be. You can use this color to paint molding, trim and other architectural details on the tangerine walls, as well as for large furniture pieces such as your sofa and armchairs. If you want a balanced look, a neutral shade such as tan or chocolate can help ground the room and stand up against the bright tangerine. However, if you want a truly bold look, don't be afraid to play with color. Use a warm shade like yellow or red to pick up those undertones in the tangerine. Muted shades like butter or brick provide a more elegant look, while vibrant shades like lemon and primary red can pack a big design punch.
A dark cherry bed establishes tonal contrast when paired with gray-green carpet in lighter shades, while window treatments with patterns in bright green enliven the palette. Warm cherry coordinates with carpet in both gray-green and blue-gray. A bed in with warm orange-cherry undertones provides complementary contrast with blue-gray carpet; throw pillows in bright peacock blue add flair. Taupe carpet has a slightly red undertone, as does carpet in warm gray. Both neutrals bring out the luminosity in beds with cherry finishes, forming color schemes within an array of toned reds. Cherry red falls on the same side of the color wheel as do warm hues such as yellows, red-yellow, yellow-orange and orange red. A carpet in a yellow-orange or tan links with a bed with orange undertones in the stain to provide a soft, neutral palette; a light fixture in antique gold adds cohesion. Mustard yellow and yellow-green carpet colors offset a bed in cool, pink undertones. A variegated carpet with dark and light browns provides contrast to burgundy cherry beds, whereas light brown carpet subtly showcases beds with lighter cherry finishes.
