Need help with pillows for a charcoal gray sofa(looks dark blue in low light)and two off white high back accent chairs. I purchased an off white shag rug and other than that, I'm starting from scratch. We are painting the living room walls with Gravity by Valspar. Any suggestions are appreciated.

My choice would probably be off-white or ivory along with a light silver type grey.

I love a shot of a distincly warm color with grey and white. Bright acid yellows, pink,or orange create a dynamic and cheerful contrast.

I agree with Charles, but along with the vibrant accents, be sure to feature some pattern interest if the space if lacking it. Take accent cues from adjoining public spaces and/or an inspirational print such as pillows, window treatments or art.
