I have one small problem thrown into my color sceam, my couch given to me by a daughter, i was in the beginings of doing my home in shades of gray from dark to lite, i planed to accent with reds, blacks, touches of gold..so now how do i make my color choices work with this darker shade of seafoam green counch? wallls are dark gray wood trim doors etc lite gray , entrance walls lite gray wood on them dark gray, floors will be darker wood. can this seafoam color fit in? yes i paint i should be able to picture this but some times what i think works doesnt lol....what do u think?
Can you go with blues instead of reds? If you add indigo or cobalt, or even turquise, and keep with the "cool" scheme the seafoam may come off more like Chinese celadon.
Definitely agree - I would stay on the cool side and select blues.
Alternatively, would a slipcover work for this particular couch?
Welcome. Grays are neutrals so that's a good thing. The key is to find a print that marries the existing grays with the seafoam (w/ additional accents thrown into the mix if they appeal to your decorating preferences). This could come via a printed rug, drapery, a papered wall, an upholstered chair, a pillow or even art. I feel spaces, even in monochromatic schemes, need both textures and patterns to keep things interesting. The fabric can serve as the bridge to make your furnishings look intentional. Carry samples via paint chips and perhaps a small pillow or arm cover for color reference as you search for that all important print to establish your new scheme.
To me the red and the gold do not seem to be right with the grey and seafoam. Black is fine. I also agree about the added blue.
