I'm trying to figure out what color pillows go with a standard black leather couch. Indigo/Dark Blue? Purple/Plum? Leopord skin is a minus Posted Image and I'm trying to avoid white. Thanks!

Black is a neutral color so I would try to contrast the pillows with something else in the room like carpeting or drapes. If the rest of the room uses basic colors like tan and white I would use something bold for the pillows like red or green.

Try yellow. I have a blue leather couch with two yellow pillows in my room and I really like the look of it.

Well, the drapes and carpet are both tan.... I was thinking of plum. Oliver: Canary yellow, gold, or something else?

I asked the wife to answer this one for you. She's an interior designer. Any color will go with the couch because it's black, but try to pick a color that is also in the room where the couch is located. For instance, if your room has some burgandy accents, choose that color or one that will complement it. Hope this helps........

If the walls are white but you are planning to paint them, go with the colour you will be painting them with. Since the drapes and carpet are tan, they are neutral so they don't matter that much.

Serious? Mustard yellow, tan, off white, brick red, pretty much any brown can be considered earth, I think, any non-primary blue... anything that Goldie Hawn would wear, basically. Posted Image





Me? I'd go for primary yellow... GO STEELERS! Posted Image

Actually, the earth tones do appeal to me, heavily leaning to yellows or tans... and a deep azure blue would be jazzy as hell.

First and foremost, your asking a bunch of guys about what colors go together! Second, take into consideration the opinion of the few females we have here... they'll know. And now for my guy response on color coordination: Top 5 Colors To Go With A Black Couch (aka Davenport [who says that? Oh wait, my grandma does]) In order of preference: 1. Neon Brown 2. Torquoise 3. White with pink dots 4. Orange (for halloween) 5. Black (because you can never have enough black) what's a couch?

Am I the only one that watches Christopher Lowell...





Give me the couch,get your self one in neutral colors,no pattern but mabey a nice texture.Then Get a good pattern pillow,floral would be nice.



Of course,you could match the pillow to the curitans,hell,just get new curitans.Better yet,get out the sewing machine,get tons of fabric and make matching curitans and pillows.Then,get some fabric paint,paint the carpet and Viola!!



Of course,you will need to make some sort of cover for your tv,speakers and electronic gear,I would reccomend a large folding screen for the tv.Place your speakers at different heights,placed in a cluster and cover them with a nice throw and put a candle on each different height.



Now you will need.....what the hell am I thinking..can I have the couch or notPosted Image

My pimpin' couch? No way! Posted Image Seriously though, my friends all tease me about having a black leather couch. I think it's pretty standard. They seem to think it's "slick".
