I’m a little bit obsessed with Jonathan Adler’s line of sofas, especially this orange Templeton one. But I’ve wondered if such a bright-hued sofa could come off as anything other than novelty. Then I saw this:

I was pleasantly surprised to see such playful colors used in such a sophisticated room. The couch, as well as the accessories, are sunny and bright but balanced by the light-filled room and bright-white walls. I’m in love.

    I have a suggestion Michale, look through the new HGTV Home by Sherwin-William paint color palettes. Find a color in one of the collections that matches your couch…then see what other colors in that collection would appeal to you as a wall color.

    Traditional Twist, Urban Organic and Global Spice might have matches.
    If your couch has small pillows, consider taking that to a paint store or home improvement store and holding it up to different paint swatches. Since those stores frequently use florescent lights, bring your favorite paint chips home, then look at them with the couch with natural light on a sunny day and in the evening when the room is brightened by lamps. The color will look different depending on lighting conditions. Hope this helps!
