Are you considering repainting your room? After choosing your paint, it’s a good idea to consider whether you’re going to be decking out your transformed room with all new furniture. If so, one great interior decorating trend to look into is color coordination. Read on to learn more about what you can do to transform a room by matching the color of the furniture to the walls.  

Neutral Coordination

Painting your room in a neutral theme is a great option for homeowners who are looking to sell their homes somewhere down the road. Not only does it look great, but practically anybody who walks into your home will be able to see themselves there, whether they want to keep it exactly how you have it or change it up a bit. Some great paint color options to choose from are gray, beige, and white. Not only do these go great with any other non-neutral color, but they also compliment each other. That way, if you ever get new furniture down the road, you won’t feel the need to repaint your walls.

Contrasting Colors

For a more lively look, you can choose a furniture color that contrasts with the color of your walls. This type of coordination can create a bold and energetic feel in any room, especially when you choose brighter colors. A great example of this is a yellow couch against soft, light violet walls, or a blue armchair against orange walls. To get some other ideas for furniture color, find the color of your wall on a color wheel and look to the opposite side of it. This would be the directly contrasting color.


For a monochromatic, color-blocking feel, you can choose a sofa or other piece of furniture that’s the same color as your walls, just a different shade. This can create a calming and organized effect, depending on your choice of color. For example, a navy armchair in a room with pale blue walls and a blue-gray couch would look fantastic!

Bringing it All Together With Additional Décor

Bringing your room together with these paint color trends doesn’t have to stop at picking out a new sofa or armchair. You can also bring in other decorations, like art, pillows, throws, and other small, yet impactful decorations to fully create the aesthetic that you visualized. One great way to get suggestions and ideas is to visit online blog communities, such as Pinterest. These will provide you with great color-combination ideas and help your home come together.
