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.
Red is the complementary color to green; therefore, pinks are a strong option when decorating with seafoam green. Both light and dark variations of pink, whether fuchsia or bubblegum pink, provide a pleasant, sophisticated and romantic contrast to seafoam green. If pink isn't your favorite color or you think it's too feminine, opt for a muted shade of pink with beige undertones, such as blush pink. To add just the right amount of drama and sophistication to your seafoam green, use pink sparingly around your room, in pillows, flowers, a small pink rug or a pink patterned footstool. I'm thinking this is because they are further away from seafoam on the colour wheel (see I really am an amateur, I can't help referring to the colour wheel). In my mind Sarah's sofa has a grey undertone so she needs to find a more muted version of the high contrast colours. These colours could work as a wall colour, but since they are so intense, would more likely be used as accent colours or as part of a patterned material.
If you want something that's both bold and refreshing, why not give tangerine a good try. This is perfect if you want a pop of color as an accent wall contrasted with a more neutral tone. The key to creating a truly striking room design is choosing some accent shades that contrast with the warm tangerine walls. Blue is opposite to orange on the color wheel, making it an ideal option when you want to turn your living room's look up a notch. You can use a blue shade as the room's main accent color, but if that design is too bold, incorporate it in smaller pieces like a patterned area rug, window treatments or throw pillows. The shade of blue you choose also becomes a factor in the room's boldness. Keep the look soft by using a light shade such as sky or a muted option like robin's egg. If you want added drama, go all out with a vivid cobalt or royal blue. With intense tangerine walls, your living room is going to have a strong look whether you use warm tones, cool tones or deep neutrals as your main accent shades.
