I have a brown couch I need to work around, but I moved to hawaii and want something lighter than the browns and blacks I had before.

Anyone good at this kinda stuff? It makes my head spin, I can hardly match my shirt and pants haha. Any color suggestions that match good with brown without being clashy or weird? I still want "comfy." Pictures of stuff you like? There is too many options on pintrist, that also makes my head spin.

I can't paint. My walls are white.


I did the teal before but I just though maybe a the tealish blue, green, and brown? I want some color because i enjoy nature and the island is beautiful I am into landscape photography and feel like the green, brown teal= my beach land scapes on canvass on the wall?  Think I can make the green work?


Also, I have all these damn windows of ODDDD size. I have a sliding glass door then a 16in across window, then a gap of wall then another about 16in across windo, then directly next to that a regular sized window then  a window opening that looks into my dinning room . I am unsure how single curtains will look on these bunchs of odd windows plus I wanted to put sheer brown curtains in the living room to dinning room window bc its odd youre just like looking into the dinner table no matter where you turn bc the living room is small. Thoughts? I hate home decor, bc I feel embarassed if its not done and DH brings work company home or something.



Teal brown white green


Or

But idk how i can get ALL these colors going on, its a small space and im not looking to spend a bajillion bucks. i like simple and NO clutter it makes both DH and I anxious.

i would say a light teal color. flows nicely with brown and doesnt clash with white walls. there are also wall stickers you can get at target or walmart that can break down the white walls. make them seem not so plain.

 brown is a neutral so any color would work
