Paint color to make a Blue/Grey Couch appear more Blue? Sign In/Join 
Hi! I was hoping someone could help me- I have a couch that is a light bluish grey- Id like to paint the wall behind it a color that makes the couch appear more blue & less grey. Could some kind soul make a color suggestion for me? Thanks ever so much!

One way to make a color stand out is to use the opposite color on the color wheel. So you you have blue you would use yellow. The changes are the blue in your blue/grey mixture is not pure blue so you will have to do some experimenting.

Lay material (or clothing) on your sofa to get an idea. Or use craft paint to paint poster board. It will get in you the general direction of what you like.
