    Hey ladies (and guys too), I need your help on some decorating ideas. I'm in the process redoing my living room. Below is Shelley's post with the pictures of my living room. (Thanks Shelley) The couch is facing the blue wall in the other picture. I'm looking for lamps (new end table, coffee table & chair are being delivered tomorrow) Which one of the below lamps do you think would look the best for the room? Or something all together different? (side note my new tables are dark brown with glass inserts)

    Also, I'm looking for an accent color for the room, I was thinking either Red, Green or Orange. What are your thoughts? I'm taking a 1/2 day today to buy this stuff (no time this weekend) so would LOVE your help.

        I like the red lamps, the 3rd one. If your looking for an accent color I would choose that one. And to accent it even more you could maybe get some red pillows like the blue ones that you have and maybe a throw blanket.

          ok, i like the 3rd one but not w/ red...i also like the 2nd.
          i'm thinking lime green, or a bright olive green - the middle of the candle that's on that shelf. i don't really like cornflower/royal blue w/ orange (reminds me of the mets, or other sports teams), and red and blue might look flag-ish...jmho
          (however, i just asked my sister and w/o seeing the pics, she said she'd prob pic red or orange....)

          Hmmmm what about a dark brown for an accent color? I may be obsessed with dark brown but I think it would look nice especially if you're new tables are brown.

          I do like the idea of a dark rustic orange too. Like this?Click the image to open in full size.

          And I really like the first link to the lamps!

            I'm partial to green myself, but I do really like the red lamps. Those would really stick out where the 1st or 2nd lamps would just blend in with the couch. Those couches look super comfy BTW.

            Good luck and be sure to post pics when it is all done!

                Yeah I was thinking if I did a green accent it would be pretty easy to do, like add some plants and maybe a couple vase's or something. But I wonder if the green would give it the "pop" that I'm looking for. KWIM?

                  I like the last lamp, but I agree I would do a different shade colour...the blue is a primary, and when you pair it with another primary colour (like red) it ends up looking more sports themed...or kids room... I would go with a muddy orange to tie the room together...jmho

                    If you did a bright/lime green color it would work well. I don't think an olive green would stick out as much, but it would still look nice.
