Need some advice!!

I have a guest bedroom that is also kind of a lounge room (I have a futon that will fold out into a bed). My furniture is a chocolate brown and im wondering what colors will go well in this room for decorating. I do NOT want to do any shade of blue or green as I have it in my other rooms (and no red, I dont like red)... I want to do something fun and funky with this room, because well I can haha so I think it will be a ton of fun!! Would love some inspiration ladies!!

  • How about a shade of yellow?

  • Brown gives you lots of options - yellow, various shades of purple, pink, orange...take your pick! You can do accents, paint each wall a different colour, put an interesting rug down, whatever. Another option is find a piece of art that you like that fits the space and take your accent colours from that.

  • i agree with the pp's...buttercup yellow would be fun and bright and make the room gender neutral so that if a male were to stay in your guest room, he wouldnt feel like he were in pink hell (although pink hell for a man sounds fantastic for me lol)

  • Orange and brown looks nice, as does yellow and brown. If it were me, I'd go with a pink, orange and brown theme- funky and cute :)

  • pink and brown look amazing together. My 1st thought was blue but you said no on that.

  • Or a really wild shade of green, maybe a chartreuse. Brown is so neutral, you can use almost anything.
