    go to Behr Paint and Wood Stain - House Paint and Wood Stains and use the color finder tool. search for asparagus, or colors around there. it's a brighter olive...i have a vase that would match your room perfectly...i'll find a pic.

        So I was thinking of putting blue pillows on my sofa (right now they are black) and I have that blue throw blanket. How would you guys incorporate the accent color? I really think the blue needs to be carried through on the other side of the wall to blance it out. KWIM?

          the blue throw could sit on the chair, or could be a spare...

            you also have a lot of empty wall space next to the pic on that wall. are you keeping that lamp in the corner? if not, you could put up dark wood shelves and put some accent pieces on the shelves...i'd put some books and maybe use large candles as bookends.

              Hmm so bright green?

              What do you think of this as an accent color?

                i think the price is fantastic
                idk, it's a nice vase, but i agree w/ sea princess said about combining primary colors or kid room colors.

                  Nope that lamp is going, if you notice the bottom of it, one of our wonderful foster dogs decided to chew it.. lol I have a matching one in the room on the other side of the couch that you can't see. But those lamps are what I'm replacing. The picture above the couch is being moved down and centered. It was fine with the old couch but not now. For the corner where that lamp is, I was thinking of putting a plant back there.. Remember I'm going to have an end table in that empty spot inbetween the couch and chair. (still not sure about the plant, but it's my current idea)

                      you have what, 5 ft of space there? if you only put a plant there, it's a lot of wasted space. what about a tall bookcase? or a matching shelf/ladder thing that you have next to the tv?
