Assisted Living: Help Me Pick a Color!

CasaSugar Community member mrb929 of the Assisted Living group is looking for some paint advice:

Help a sister out! When it comes to paint colors, I am pretty clueless. I had to repaint my two childrens' rooms after I paid someone to do it. I'm having to do the same thing with my own bedroom. Thankfully, I never painted the living room because I am pretty confident I would have messed it up, too. Now that I've got my furniture in place — a tan ultrasuede couch, three dark brown chairs, a white ottoman, accented with light blue curtains and lamps — I'm ready to paint. The problem is I don't know what color to choose. Since I have zero faith in my pantone selection, I'm hoping you guys can offer me some good advice.

To see what I'd suggest and to give your own two cents,


I love the earth tones in this room so I'd try to keep it simple with a light linen color. Be careful when picking your hues as beige colors can sometimes look pinkish or more purple than tan. Another option would be testing a light gray to gently draw out the blues in the room.

Does anyone else have any suggestions for paint colors? Please comment below! And be sure to join the Assisted Living group!
