Day 208/365--Eastlake Gold

My daily contribution to my year long "Around the House" photo project. 365 photos. Blogged here.

208-265 Eastlake Gold

In talking with my mom over the weekend, I began to ponder a color scheme for the Rec Room. I've been stumped because of the couch. When we picked out fabric to recover it, this was our favorite of all the choices. But. I don't generally like purple and gold/yellow together. And it has a clear pattern so you can't just throw more patterns in to bring in more colors. And augh. But then I had a thought! Dark green walls (a couple shades darker than shown here). Goldy-creamy accent wall (a bit more subdued than shown here). Voila! Picks up the gold in the couch and avoids becoming the "purple room". There are a few other variations here and here.

What do you think? What would you pair with our swirly purple and gold couch?

(PS. These photos were mocked up using Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer which lets you upload and use your own photos.)
